My previous two posts were about making a one color block print on fabric and then using that fabric to sew a bag and a zip pouch.
For my second block printing project, I upped the ante and printed a three color design, “Wild Roses.” Each color in the design has its own block and is printed separately. I started with the petals of the roses, then added the stamen, and finally added some leaves to some of the roses.
I printed this design on voile, a very thin fabric. The ink dried very quickly on the voile, so I was able to move from one color to the next as soon as I was done printing a color. Usually the fabric will need more time to dry between different color prints.
I made the rectangular scarf from the book, Print Pattern Sew by Jen Hewett. I shorted the length of the scarf because it felt more comfortable shorter.
This scarf is a gift. I might have to make another one to keep!
