Our Cutest Fabric Ever

Today was an exciting day because we had new screens to play with. My goal was to have new fabrics for the Brisbane Stitches and Craft
Show and am happy to show off our new kids' design "Pets and Bones". The design is a collaboration between graphic designer Liz Christiansen and myself. Liz drew the adorable cat and dog motifs and I tossed them into a pattern that may be used in any direction.

We printed these on coloured cotton fabrics that I have had in my studio for a while so they are limited-edition runs just for the show. I have to point out that the ink colours are not showing correctly in these photos. The blue fabric has a chocolate print and the lime one has a striking purple print.

We will also be printing the designs on our organic fabrics, including soft jerseys, for sale at the show and through our
on-line store once time permits. We are working around the clock to get ready for the show so please keep checking our blog for updates.

The best thing about teaching screen-printing
workshops is that I get to meet wonderful, creative Brisbanites. This is the lovely, talented Liz, who I met last year when she brought her husband, sister and niece along to screen-print one Saturday afternoon. You may also remember my post about her son, cutie-patootie Rocco.

If you would like any design or illustration work done, please email Liz Christiansen at liz[at]neonelastic[dot]com
