Here's my new pattern,I printed some fabric for gavagai for a swap.




Here's a detailed picture,the colour is strange though :



And here's a lined zippered pencil case I made for myself earlier :



I wish that some day I would be selling these on the net, people seem to like the birds so much : )

She is just going to love that fabric... silly question  - you printed it yourself?  That is awesome - how??? I would just love to print some for a few people!  Those skulls are just hard to find! And a few other motifs I wouldn't mind printing up.....

I understand it is silk screened - but I can't imagine getting all those little birds perfectly spaced out.  That is just awesome!

How awesome is this!!  I'd love to make my own patterned fabric!  Do you think it would work if I used rubber stamps and fabric paint?

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Thanks for the comments!

I printed this fabric with quite big screen - 49 cm x 59 cm. I measured the canvas and did a little marks where I place the screen so all the birds are like they should be.There's a lot of work but it's worth it Smiley

I've printed fabric with a small screen and the best trick I was taught was to print it in a checker board pattern. That is, print every other area and then come back when it's dry and do the in between bits. That way you aren't laying your screen on wet ink.
