"My Happy Place" Screenprinted Material is Available!
My ink is in and I have begun printing and heat setting! I have some pieces of "My Happy Place" available in my shop now and will be adding more in the next few days (or maybe even today.)
Due to the limitations of my little home set up here, the fabric pieces measure 10.25" wide x 13.25" long. That is my maximum screen size. While I just love the look of the handprinted fabrics on my choice of Essex/Cotton Blend, there is something to be said for yardage too! I expect that some might want pieces larger than I can print. I have ordered a test print from Spoonflower and once I am happy with it, I will order some yardage for my shop as well. It is unlikely to be available till mid summer.
If you are looking for coordinates for "My Happy Place," I have a few recommendations!
I like this Michael Miller red and aqua bundle from Pinked Fabrics.
Have you visited Hawthorne Threads before? They have a "color grid" feature where you can isolate fabrics by color. I used this tool to search for the right shade of red and think that prints from the Riley Blake Sugar and Spice line would make for a really cute combination.
I have also found that I really like Moda's Bliss prints with my design. They work together well!
