training her up...

 First day of the school holidays and Ruby and I had our long awaited date at the screen printing studio.


Ruby had drawn this fab horse at school in art and we thought it would look great as a screen print. We had already had an order from a family member for a cushion. I am pretty sure she doesn't read my blog so it's safe to show you before she gets it. Ruby did it weeks ago but this was really the first opportunity we had had. 

Besides which it was a lovely first day of the holidays activity.




 We went to the workshop to expose the screen. That's the only thing I need to go there for now and it was actually nice to go see everyone there.

Once home and the screen dry Ruby got kitted up to get printing.


 Next step was to let that dry before we (me) could sew it into the cushion.
Pause for a sec to see my testing piece, the fabric I use to flood the screen with ink and test it has gone through. It is like a diary of my prints!
Finally the cushion was sewn up and one happy producer!
She has decided she would like to sell more of these (rather than just the family member sympathy buyer) and is trying to establish a fair split. We haven't quite come to a happy conclusion for both parties yet.


Let's just say we are in negotiation...

ps last day to enter my Glimma giveaway...go here if you haven't already...
