I made up some screens with various awesome icons from Doctor who and finally decided to print up some fat quarters with said images. I love how they turned out, especially the ones with a half drop registration. It was all done by hand, each image printed individually, though each piece of fabric probably took less than an hour to print up.











I also had a Dark Mark screen and my beloved jawbone!  Grin





I'd love to hear any thoughts or comments  Smiley Thanks for looking!

omg love love love all of these, i can't even pick a favorite.

did you use a pro silk screen or the mod podge and embroidery hoop method? and did you have to wash the screen off inbetween each print?

I have a ton of embroidery  hoop screens and i've tried to do fabric with some of them but it took forever cuz i ended up having to wash off the screen inbetween each print because it was bleeding through, but yours look freaking amazing and really clean images so I'm just wondering what your method was

Thanks so much everyone  Grin

Ivoryh - I used actual screens, though I cheated with the mesh. It's not proper screen printing mesh, but some organza I bought at Joanns which works surprisingly well (it's not perfect but definitely does the trick). For pretty much all of these I only had to wash the screen once I was done printing the fabric. If you're not having a ton of luck with modge podge you might try using Speedball drawing fluid/screen filler. That's what I use for most of my prints. There is occasionally still bleeding but that's usually because I used too much ink or something.
