Block Printing on Knits

photo

Tonight I taught another session of block printing at Sew L.A.. It was a really lovely session with some fun folks. I was inspired by my friend Cory to carve and print these cute kitty cats. The photo’s lighting is off… the fabric is an olive grey and the cats are a soft pink (achieved by mixing copper and white ink). I decided to experiment with a 95% cotton / 5% spandex blend and am curious about how the ink will adhere after being washed. I plan to make this into a lovely summer tank top… so we shall see!
