It was suggested to me by friends and family that perhaps Winged Beast pillowcases were necessary, perhaps even wanted. I'm always curious to see what works and what doesn't, creatively and in the marketplace. Thus begins this little test project.
As I can't sew, I found some really good looking ones for dirt cheap at a Value Village in Bellville(and my mom got a bunch at auction). After washing them (because I'm nice like that) I set to work printing them. Now follows some photos of that process.
Here's the pillow case, laid out in a handy workspace (my amazing kitchen table). Because the fabric's thin, I put some newspaper on the inside to prevent the ink from bleeding through. I also put a large craft mat underneath to give the case a little more thickness. Experience has shown that thin fabrics need this little bit added so they meet the screen well.
After that, the screen!
And then then the ink! A nice close up.
The print applied! But, I'm not done.
"Don't Let Go" prints has made me pretty comfortable with this... and it's a nice change of pace from the silk screening.
