Printmaking to textile

Why is nothing easy?? The next step with my printmaking was to replicate the design in fabric that it could be quilted. So on the left is the design I choose from yesterday’s printmaking:

Next to it, it is the fabric version – well sort of. The cutter won’t cut the fabric stencils the right way up so I turned the bonded fabric over on the cutter and it mostly worked. A bit of scissor work required. The pale grey is the failed cut which required lots of scissor work. The dark is the turned over fabric – which means it was reversed!! So I know I am dyslexic but even I should have worked that out!. So then I randomised with the fabric shapes to see if the concept worked. The resident art critic says it doesn’t have enough texture! So the jury is out.

Hopefully when I do my next post, i will have managed to replicate a print in fabric.

One thought on “Printmaking to textile

  1. I love the graphic quality of the prints and understand what you mean about the fabric. I had (obviously incorrectly) imagined that you were going to print directly onto the fabric – either as a wholecloth or printed shapes with added seam allowance and then pieced. Still love the concept though. xxx
