Digital Prints

Further to my current screen printing for my new range.. I've done a bit of cheeky digital printing to see if I like it within my range or not. I've decided I do so these will be amongst my new products that I will be launching at The Liverpool Design Show in October! I'm not going to give much away yet so here are the finished uncut fabrics.

Finally printing!

I've finally been getting going with my screen printing from my home studio. I've been experimenting with lots of new motifs to decide on my new range. So here's a sneak peak at my owls (which you've seen before, my new ones are going to be a surprise!)

The vest tops below were a birthday present for my (very supportive when it comes to my business venture!) friend Heather.

Playing around with my screens

This was a men's t-shirt I made for a friend the other week. The motif is an abstract drawing of tree trunk slices. You can't quite tell in the photograph but they are a mix of black and grey. I taped off the edges to give it a clean edge shape, a bit more suitable for a bloke I thought!

A few more makes

My friend James requested a sleeve for his Blackberry and chose his fabrics from my stash. I think he chose very well! A nice contrasting carrot orange for the lining worked well with the green gingham, and this was my first use of my new fabric labels.

I've not yet made a sleeve for an ipad, only Kindles so far so this was a commission by a lovely lady off Etsy, I made it just using the dimensions and was worried it wouldn't end up fitting but it does perfectly apparently! So if anyone would like one just ask.

Owls - Just to make a change!

A lovely children's owl range in BHS at the moment, I used to work in the home department here back in the day, I always loved seeing the new ranges come in.
