This is fabulous! I think your experiment was quite successful! I love how you used the colorful thread to make certain features pop. Brilliant job!

that looks awesome.  I love the idea of combining screen printing and embroidery, and really love how you did it.

This is a great idea to use for practice instead of a traditional sampler.

What a great design! Love the colours.
I think the best resource for perfecting your stitching is Mary Corbet's site Needle n Thread. (just Goggle it)

It looks fantastic and such a brilliant idea.

What technique did you use to do the screen printing? It looks so sharp and detailed.

thank you thank you that site it fantastic!! Grin


What technique did you use to do the screen printing? It looks so sharp and detailed.

I used a photo stencil from a drawing that I'd scanned and made into a repeat on photoshop and printed onto acetate. The screen's mesh count was about 66, so that's average for printing with waterbased ink onto fabric. Usually for finer detail you can go higher with the mesh count, but I only have 2 different types of screens. I was really pleased with how it came out; the full pattern covers about 8 repeats of the shuttle (the hoopla is just a small section). I think after a few goes I found you only needed one good solid slow pull to get a good line, more than that and the ink would flood too much and blur the lines on the fabric. I LOVE screen printing its been a pleasure of mine for years but I'm really getting into the combination of techniques atm! big up to embroidery aswell haha
