As many of you guessed in my previous post, the inspiration for my new fabric design was Octopus Tentacles. Thus I have called this design "Tentacality".
Elessa (the offspring) and I tested the print yesterday and I was quite chuffed. Firstly because it looked good when it all came together (the above is the first print run) and secondly that Elessa was able to screen-print yardage with me after not printing for at least 2 years. It's good to have back-up printers.
The design was in my files for far too long. There were times when I doubted that it was good enough to print and left it alone. I work so hard to come up with original designs and it's not easy to know what people may like.
Do you like it? I'm looking forward to cutting it across the fabric for cushions as each one will look different.
Now, what colours should we print? Of course, I love the Marine Blue on white linen and I'm also thinking White and Red prints on natural linen. Are there any other colours that you would like to see?
