A post from Kelli:
It’s no secret…I love all things crafty. Sometimes I take a bit of prodding to try something new as I am a fan of tradition, and change sometimes makes me a bit nervous. After reading Printing on Fabric: Techniques with Screens, Stencils, Inks, and Dyes by Jen Swearington, I am ready to try it out!
The book starts off providing a wonderful explanation of different tools, techniques, and products that can be used when printing on fabric. Jen tells readers how to set up their studio or workspace and also includes things to keep in mind when preparing a project. Examples are also given of unique items that can be used when printing such as a woven basket. Also, if one specific way of printing doesn’t work for you, no need to fear–instructions for many different kinds of printing are provided.
The book also includes lots of projects that you can make yourself. One of my favorites was this tote with a printed bicycle.
Whether your looking for a new hobby or are looking for an interesting gift idea, this is the book for you. The easy to follow instructions will help you become a pro in no time! You can also check out Jen’s website for more projects that she has create.
To have a chance to win a copy of this book, leave a comment below sharing a new craft you would like to try…or a tip to prevent dogs from chewing their dog beds. As mom and I will be going to a quilt retreat this weekend (super excited), we’ll be choosing a winner early next week.
