I promised ages ago that I would show you a photograph of the challenge which had been set by my group for their Christmas present exchange. As I said before the theme for the present should be Cool Britannia.
Well I did it:
I have just spent the most marvellous morning printing fabric - I have never done this before and I really loved it. I used some fabric that really did not owe me anything so I did not mind if I made a complete hash of it all but I really loved it.
I have three thermofaxes which I have picked up at various shows and was just too scared to use. So here are the results so far
Then I used a fax with a flower motif
This definitely needs more work - other colours etc. but I quite like the fax itself.
But my favourite is:
Now the challenge is to cut it into three inch squares and see what one could do with it.
I am off to Committed to Cloth tomorrow for the day so I will do some more printing and see what happens.
Is this going to make me give up buying commercial fabric - I am not sure but I think it certainly has possibilities.
