Breakdown Printing

Last weekend I did some breakdown printing. I didn't spend too much time creating the screen as, quite frankly, I had higher textiling priorities but I couldn't resist the opportunity to create a screen, for the screen to dry and be ready to print with all in the same day (gosh it's been warm!)

I printed on fabric which is a mixture of silk and cotton and has a nice drape. I quite fancy making an item of clothing with it but doubt that I have enough for a dress. Maybe I could make a top with some floppy sleeves?

If When, I make something I'll be back to show you!

PS You may have noticed that I have added buttons at the side of my blog to make it easier to follow me on Bloglovin' and Feedly. If you used Google Reader before, what have you replaced it with? I've just set myself up on both of these to see which I prefer.... I can't decide which one at the moment. Indecisive? Me?


  1. I love your fabric but could you explain what breakdown printng is????

    1. Thanks Gill.

      You can read a description of breakdown printing here:

      And there's a video of some of the process here:

      Hope you find it interesting and helpful.


  2. I love the idea of printing a big enough length of fabric to make a garment, well done!

  3. It is a beautiful length of cloth! Lovely to see you today - thank you for visiting.


Please leave your comments - it would be great to hear from you
