My Creative Space - Fabric design


I've been experimenting with fabric design, printing up pieces of old cloth in a haphazard kind of collage way... It doesn't look like much and I know you've seen some of these design bits before but I've been trying to think of them in a fabric way if that makes any sense? ;) I'm very happy with my 3 tree motif and I've been playing with a telegraph pole screen and button hole cross stamp too. Not quite there yet but I'm enjoying the process :)

Pop over to Kirsty's at Kootoyoo to see more creative spaces or to play along yourself.

I love all of them, Kylie! I wish I had any clue on how to do blockprinting. I'm sure that my designs would probably look like big chunks of paint everywhere! Totally rad your work!! :)
