Rainbow Leapfrogs and Butterflies
Sure, it took me awhile, but I was good to my word! I now have some handprinted linocut rainbow leapfrogs ready for sale in my shop. I look forward to seeing what you choose to do with them. Perhaps they will be used on bags, pouches, quilts? The sky is the limit!
Speaking of skies...I printed my flying butterfly repeatedly over a fat quarter of prewashed Essex 55% Linen 45% Cotton Blend. I am calling it "Orange is for Monarchs." It feels like spring to me. I think it would make a fine pillow cover.
This is my first attempt at "yardage" using my handprinted designs. I plan to do more. It takes quite a bit of time but it is satisfying.
