I have really wanted to make some canvas shopping tote bags for a while and as I have the Larkhall Craft Fair coming up on Sunday I thought it might be a good time to road test some of my ideas before putting them live on my shop.
Lino printing onto fabric is always a tense time for me!
Its all fine until you have to peel the lino back (wow my hand looks chubby in this pic!).
Phew! Well truthfully I buggered the first one up but the others came out fine. I really like my squirrel design but I wanted a hare one too so cut a new design this afternoon which I could print in blue.
I'm really pleased with how these came out, I've only printed 3 of each design just to see how they go on Sunday. Just need to get the rest of my stock together now.
If your in the area the craft fair will be at the New Oriel Hall in Larkhall, Bath from 12-5 this Sunday (5th), fingers crossed the sun shines!
I'm Kat and I'm an illustrator living and working in Bath in the UK. This blog is a record of my artwork, projects and anything I think is interesting, I hope you'll read a little of my ramblings!
