I'm developing a real interest in fabric printing. With two potatoes going green in the pantry I thought that this week would be a good time to play around with doing some potato prints on some fabric remnants.
Feeling inspired from reading I decided on a simple cloud motif -it would work well for two reasons. Firstly it was going to be relatively easy to cut out a cloud image into a potato (given that I hadn't done this since my childhood - which I regret to share with you was a very long time ago) and secondly I had left-over white fabric ink.
The white ink that I used is not opaque so the clouds have a sweet translucent effect. I'm really pleased with the outcome. Better still I only used one potato, so I have another green tat sitting on the window sill ready for more experimentation.
I'm hoping to sew a little smock with the pieces sometime soon...
... so stay tuned!
