prints


It might be a spring thing, trying out new things. Like prints. I've had for some time now two great books about that subject on my bookshelf, Lotta prints by Lotta Jansdotter and Printing by Hand by Lena Corwin, but only yesterday i got the urge to try out some printing.


I didn't have a lot of equipment - some old fabric colors (the black one was way too old and bad smelling...), some white canvas and two potatoes. Today I finished three coin purses with simple prints on them and it was so much fun!


The lining is Marimekko fabric Muija by Maija Isola.
