screen printing

This is work on a whole bigger scale than making atc's:-). I did not only screen print on small pieces of fabric, but also on a big piece of felt which I had bought years ago with the intention of making a coat. I knew that I wanted to decorate the fabric first, but till a couple of weeks ago I had no clue how or with what design. Till I made the templates with the fern leaves and the fiddle heads. I cut out the pattern and screen printed the different leaves and fiddle heads on it before I stitched the parts together.

The coat will probably be not warm enough for winter, but is great for autumn and spring.

Hi Wil,
I love the screen printing on your coat. It has been nice to see a close up photo of it.

I've run out of steam with Lyrics course. I enrolled in it by accident (I did the course earlier n the year).
