Last night, I tried to use my Gocco to print an image onto a shirt. It didn't work, but before I did the shirt, I had a bunch of test prints on gingham fabric. This morning, I made them into ornaments. This is the first time I've been able to use the Gocco on fabric successfully, so I'm pretty psyched. Now if only I could get the hang of shirts, I'd be in good shape.



Here they are on cup hooks in my kitchen:



And, in case you're curious (and you know you are), these are from a series of elf house illustrations I did recently.

I'd love any comments or critiques. Thanks!

I love your mushrooms. It's amazing how you could use Gocco to transfer your amazing artwork onto the fabric. Another piece of art.

I love those ornaments!

I can't wait to see the shirts, if you get that kinked out!

Thanks! I think I may know the issue: I did a bunch of test prints all in a row. I then handed the screen to my friend to hold while I ran and got the shirt. By the time I had the shirt all set to print, the ink had dried up in the screen too much, and the image was really light. Next time, I'll try just printing the shirt immediately. I'll have to make sure I have all my materials laid out ahead of time. Just a tip to anyone trying the same thing.

I watched these being birthed.
I do love them. I do.
