my creative space: chevron screen print

I haven't had much time for being creative this week but I have had an idea rolling around in my head to make a bag with a chevron screen print which refused to be ignored.. you know those little ideas that wake you up in the middle of the night and won't let you get back to sleep... grrrr!! So I thought I better do something about it!

step 1: cut the stencil out

step 2: screen print the fabric

That's as far as I have got so far... but least I have kept those midnight idea gremlins at bay and happy... for the moment... phew! I am looking forward to having a new bag soon...Thank you midnight gremlins :)

Oh and **Happy Australia Day** we had a such a great day at Hyde Park today, despite the rain! My little man got to meet Jimmy Giggle (a kids presenter here in Australia)... he was so excited and a little star struck... it was so cute! I printed this picture, framed it and hung it on his bedroom wall... he's one happy little man today :)

Hope you are having a great creative week!
There are loads more creative people over at our creative spaces...


  1. Happy Australia Day! How cool for your little man!

    The local rec dept is offering a class on silk screening--yes! the rec dept!--and it's on my list to sign up. But it says something about burning screens? That sounds different from what you do--and a little intimidating!

    1. Thanks Amy! How exciting doing a class on silk screen printing :) Burning the screen is just a more permanent way of putting a design on a screen and can be reused over and over! Stencils can be used over and over too but it takes more time to set up! I am going to do a workshop on burning the screen sometime this year! Can't wait :)

  2. Can't wait to see that new bag. I have a feeling it will be fantastic!

  3. Can't wait to see the finished product!! And although i'm sure it is annoying to be awoken in the middle of the night by you relentless inner creativity... it's kinda great too!

  4. How precise your cutting is! I'm impressed by your sheer patience.

    That print looks like tyre tracks leading somewhere.....great job!

  5. I love your blog.

  6. such a classic pattern! looking forward to seeing the finished skirt :)

  7. Happy belated Australia Day! So awesome that you guys met Jimmy Giggle - I think he and Hoot are pretty cool. Was he just like how his TV persona comes across?

    1. Yeh.. He was still in character as Jimmy! He got totally swamped by little kids... it was so funny!
