While designing these fabrics, I decided that I really liked the designing part! I started thinking while weaving the fabric if I could actually print on fabric. After a little research, I found some ink that is oil-based, but cleans up with soap and water. It's the Speedball brand, and you have to let it set 1 week before washing. I just barely made the samples last week, but here they are! I just washed them up today and the ink seems to be holding ok! Here are my samples:
Hand-carved fox stamp:
Hand-carved orange stamp:
I also got some stamps from hobby lobby with letters so I can put some words on his clothes, too. He really loves letters right now and pointing them out and naming them!
I think in the future, one of these prints would look awesome paired with a handwoven plaid fabric!
This little boy is growing up so fast, and will be 2 next month!!
In-between taking care of David and designing fabric and doing all the housework, I've also been playing with a very easy to use time lapse camera and I've had a blast! Here are some of my videos:
Garden of the Gods:
I have a ton of ideas to do with this camera, too! There is just so many fun things going on right now! :)
