Block printing on linen

Hello, it’s been a while since I’ve done any crafting but since I’m now hibernating i thought it was about time to tackle some projects I’ve been meaning to do. Back in the summer I bought this beautiful Indian wooden block with the intention of printing some fabric, roll on a few months and I’ve finally got round to it. I love how simple the design is!

I mixed my favourite shade of grey with block printing medium and found a piece of natural linen out of my fabric cupboard. Happy days!

Once it’s dried I’ll iron over some grease proof paper to fix the paint, then I’m going to make some cushions out of it.

I’d forgotten how therapeutic I find printing fabric so I shall probably be doing loads more this winter. I’m also going to be reopening my store soon! I’ll keep you posted.

Textile design, block printing.

There are few things more calming then sitting down with a fresh piece of Lino ready to make your mark.   

 
I love designing and making my own blocks for fabric printing, being in charge of the whole process from drawing, cutting, selecting fabric and the instant gratification that comes with something handmade. I think out of all the printing methods, this one is my favourite!

Every single print being utterly unique and slightly different, perfect imperfections.
