WIP Wednesday - Block Printing

I have participated in a few virtual block printing workshops with Marni @ Haberdashery Fun.  The workshops are fun and informative.  I may be addicted to yet another craft........

We learned to make our own printing templates using Speedball speedy carve.  But I wondered if I could use stamps I had used for card making.  I printed some daisies with blue centres and made a Lined Drawstring Bag.  I love this pattern, and it's worth purchasing the pattern to get the additional sizes.

I then pulled out my Girl Guide Trefoil stamp (sadly not the current logo) and made an Open Wide Zippered Pouch.  This is my favourite zippered pouch pattern.

So what to put in this pouch?  Girl Guide crests of course!  I am so far behind sewing crests on my camp blankets.  These are few crests from the top of the pile currently in my bedroom.  I decline to comment on how many crests that need to be sewn on, or how many various places I have them stashed.  😉  If you have a good eye, you'll see my personal woven patch when I was Area Commissioner.

Now that my time is not consumed with dealing with the basement flood I had four week ago, I have time to sew.  And it feels good!

  1. Hooray for time to sew, and I love that you have a Girl Guide stamp and special pouch now!

  2. What a lovely bag to keep all those badges in!

  3. Your printed/stamped fabrics look terrific! What ink are you using? I used to do a lot of rubber stamping and I have a lot of stamps. I've been interested in using them on fabric but I've never found an ink that seems to work well.

  4. What fun projects!!! I love that you are stamping the fabric and literally making it your own!

  5. Hooray for sewing! Sorry about the flood; I hate when that happens. Really love these projects and the block printing inspiration.

  6. Both projects look so cute! I remember the days of sewing patches for my son who was a Boy Scout for a number of years - not fun! I’m really sorry to hear about the flood and I hope it wasn’t too too bad.

  7. So glad you can get back to sewing! Love the combination of stamping and sewing projects. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  8. Lovely projects!!! A pop of orange inside a blue pouch - what a surprise :-p
