Last night I tried printing fabric using my print gocco and a new order of supplies that arrived last week. I'm very excited about experimenting with this technique, and was kept awake at night, thinking of the possibilities that were opening up....
I started off with a very simple design for a child's t-shirt, and printed a small batch of them for my market stall. It was definitely an easy process, but I learned a few tricks with regards to ink application and amount, placement of fabric, etc.
To find out more about how the gocco works, there is a great tutorial here.
I can't wait to try more!
And, because i'm an impatient person, I also started playing around with the tree-printed linen from my last post, and made this bag for my shop. I really like the combination of linen and wool, and i think it gives the bag more structure and strength. The back panels are both made from brown tweedy wool fabric.
