Lilacs Design Preview

Our new "Lilacs" fabric is almost here! We're just waiting for the film positives to come back today so that screens can be exposed, hopefully before our Yardage Printing workshop next week.

Here's a sneak preview. Print colours still need to be determined but I hope you like the design. Of course, it will look better screen-printed on fabric.

Here is the beautiful the inspirational image found here. The Lilac flower is a symbol of happiness, peace, harmony and creativity. I like that.

Three screen sizes need to be made to accommodate yardage printing, napkin printing and tea-towel printing. Now what colours to print?

I love it, absolutely stunning! I love how you show the inspiration through to final result!

Hope you are keeping safe there in Brisbane!

Thanks Hazel, it takes me a long time to get to that point even though it looks simple. But then again, I'm probably slower than most designers.

We're safe where we are, thanks for asking. x

Love this new design! You commented that "it takes me a long time to get to that point even though it looks simple". That's the nature of a great design I think. ;)

Now what color? I would like a plum as well. Maybe even printed on your gray linen. So many possibilities. That must drive you crazy. I know it would for me. ha

Gorgeous as always Thea! Colours - maybe pink, lilac (stands to reason) and aqua? This is such a pretty design, I think it would suit pretty colours to match. And black and white, and black and taupe would work well too? Just my two cents worth of course :)

Love it Thea!! It has a youthful feel to me, maybe it's the punk as well but I think it would be perfect for a sophisticated teenage room. Can't wait to see more.

That should have read pink not punk ha

I wouldn't have considered Plum but we'll try it as we also got that suggestion on Facebook.

Lol Katherine, I was wondering why a punk would like sweet lilacs!
