good idea part 2

So this is the good idea I mentioned yesterday:

I've been wanting to do some printing onto fabric for ages, and then yesterday I realised I could just sketch directly onto the fabric. I'm using this really excellent fineline type pen (I think the brand is Millenium) and then heat setting it with an iron, and it's actually waterproof (I soaked one in some water for awhile and it's all good). Some of them have painted bits too.

All the purses I'm doing are calico as I wanted a pale coloured fabric, but something that was a bit natural looking, and calico seemed a good option.

These two will be added to my Dawanda store.
