I definitely will!

I also loved your cardboard tube printing technique.  I'm thinking about folding them into heart shapes and letting baby.sweets4ever make some Valentine prints in the next couple of weeks.

Do more of what makes you happy.

Yay for combining printing and embroidery it looks awesome.

I love the texture it creates, big fat bubble wrap would look sweet as!! Before I read the tutuorial I was wondering if it would be awkward using a roller to press the ink onto the fabric but using a book is a great alternative, means you aren't popping them all haha.

and this is the best idea too!! You are both inspiring me!

I make screen printed clothes and accessories!

Love this, it looks FANTASTIC! Instant vintage 60's-70's look I think. Plus a very cute bee to finish it off. Hitting this rocks Smiley

I've been looking for something geometrical and simple to print onto my table runner - I'm  now thinking a light grey/coral pink bubble wrap print (the fabric is white).... thanks! I'll post the photo when I'm done Smiley

Still trying to decide between acrylic or going out to get fabric paint. I have marbling inks which might work well, I think they become colour-fast once ironed and they are stashed away upstairs..


I would highly recommend going out to get the fabric paint over acrylic paint as in my experience with painting on fabric using acrylics it makes the fabric very very stiff once it drys and the fabric will no longer drape as it would normally where as fabric paint doesn't change the drape or feel of the fabric once it dries, I guess cause it is made for it lol  Just thought I would mention it since I have already ruined fabric on another project last year using acrylics before someone else makes the same mistake.  Smiley    Great idea printing with the bubblewrap though it looks totally awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is so cute! Who would thought using bubble wrap! I will have to keep this in mind the next time I am painting on fabric.

this is great, it would be a fabulous background to all sorts of things, kinda working as a transition from a solid colour fabric to a detailed print on the top...must try!

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.
