At the end of the last term I decided that I really must try and keep up with my own sewing and projects. Term goes by far too quickly and I end up having done what is required with the girls and not anything more. Printing is such a gratifying medium and after last term where we were all bleach printing with wonderful results I decided to keep going and make scarves for a very dear friend and myself... the results are below:
This first one was printed using a Alabama Chenin stencil that I got from heretheir resources page. When bleaching the blue stretch fabric dyed to a lovely purple, which I matched quite handily to a wonderful viscose that was in my stash of fabric that had a soft hand feel.
My friend was very happy with her scarf and I was thrilled that I had managed to make something that really was useful and very unique. All the right reasons for sewing. My resolution for this year is to keep sewing.
