New printing projects!

I have been meaning to print my Florentine Lilies design onto fabric ever since I took this textile screenprinting course last year. My idea was to print it onto fabric and then make it up into an eco- friendly shopping bag. However, for some reason I have been procrastinating on this little project - maybe because I wasn't sure how the printing onto fabric would turn out, also other projects took precedent. Last week I finally took the plunge and I am really pleased with how it looks above.
Another project that I have been wanting to explore for a while is printing my designs onto notebooks. Again I went ahead last week and printed my Snowdrop design onto this small notebook:

I think the colours work well on the brown background (which I have explored before here) and am going to print up more little notebooks and wrapping paper with some designs that I already have and also some new ones that are in the pipeline.

The print looks wonderful on the fabric--would make lovely shopping bags. K x

Beautiful! Are you also planning to make a repetitive pattern with this design?
I think, it would look very nice, like in one traditional Indian fabric printmaking style called 'Bagh print'.

Kristina - thank you, I just need the time to sew it up now!

Debu Barve - thank you, also for the link to your photo. I have done some pattern repeats and intend to experiment with more. Here is a link to the ones that I have done already:

Wow! I simply loved your 'Venetian Windows print'from the link you have given.
