i recently had so much fun with hand-printing on fabrics. this is something we (me and my partner, Ojan) learn from Lena Corwin's tutorial book, called Printing by Hand. We got this book by winning a giveaway from Tamimi. an inspiring book indeed!

so then i try to print an image using one of these techniques on the book. i used stencil as the mold to print. the stencil made from thin carton. i drew something on it, then carved it using a cutter pen. after that, i placed it against the fabric, hold it with tape, and add a rubber paint using sponge. i made this in five different colors and make a hand-sewed coin pouch out of it. i think it looks pretty nice, what do you think? :D

the stencil

Made these pouches as giveaways for Play Your Magic Hands workshop. you can go here to read the complete story :) 

ah too bad i didn't have any descent pictures of the process. but its quite simple actually, you could just googled it and you'll find lots of tutorials in several techniques. so why not have a try? this is a very much fun project to do on the weekend! 
have a nice weekend, friends ^^
