A few weeks ago I signed up for an online block printing class. I have always wanted to design my own fabric so I thought this would be a good place to start. The class is taught by Jennifer Hewett. I have admired her hand printed garments which are just beautiful!
You can see more of her work [HERE]
The class is wonderful. Jen's instructions are clear and concise, and she teaches at a pace that allows you to accomplish each lesson without feeling too rushed.
I decided to create a simple print with a favorite design. If you follow my blog, you know how much I love using an apple motif in foundation paper piecing and other apple projects.
The technique uses soft carving blocks and screen printing ink. It didn't require a lot of new supplies, many of which I already had : )
The lining is a fun, quilted polka dot fabric. The lining pocket is from a test print and seemed like a perfect use for the lone apple.
Added to my list of "to do's", is enough fabric to make a knee length pleated skirt!
Happy Sewing : )
