okay, i hope this works. this is my first time showing off a project.
i am very excited by this as i have just started screenprinting and this is my first thing made from fabric i've done. it's just a very simple bucket purse
(my boys always need to get in the picture Roll Eyes)and it didn't turn out quite how i expected because i didn't screen quite enough fabric but that's okay. there are always more projects to be done Wink
here is a close up of the fabric- just some white cotton canvas.
i love red and orange together and am now thinking about screening some fabric for a dress. we'll see.
if anyone is interested i used colour vie pigment system and i LOVE it!
 thanks for looking

thank you.
it didn't take too long to screen it. i worked on mixing the colours last night and testing the screen (the longest part is making the screens) and i did the under layer before bed. in the morning i used the orange over top. so actual screening was probably only maybe a half hour? no more than 45 min. but then it needs to dry and be heat set. the thing i like about the colour vie is that it still feels like fabric. it's not going to crack and it's not plastic-y. i don't think i will make this style of purse again but i will definately make more fabrics!
thanks again

thank you for your kind replies. i'm just new at this so it is definitely a learning process.
i would totally love a screen printing day with you grand theft uno. maybe we could learn a bit (or a lot) from eachother! <sigh> i'm going to miss you in september. Cry
i have been learning from grand theft uno and the tutorials on here. it's a lot of fun! the next thing i think i want to screen is a skully "prom" dress!  we'll see if i have time between now and june 2nd.

omgoodness I want to see that dress when it is finished!

I am still in awe over your fabric. I probably drooled. A little bit.

Man I suck. Someone teach me this stuff. Okay? Okay.
