Patchwork for children

Quilting-patchwork-block-prints  Quilt-in-a-day  patchwork-kids-crafts-block-printsKids crafts is so much fun using block prints. during the holidays why not try block printing a quilt in a day. Children can easily block print lovely patchwork pieces to stitch into a colourful quilt. Quilting for youngsters can be very rewarding if you use great colours and wooden printing blocks. if you want to know how to make a quilt here are some simple instructions.

How to block print your own fabric

1) Choose a selection of random sized fabric to use as your patchwork.

2) Block prints are created using wooden printing blocks to print onto each piece of patchwork. Remember you must have a foam mat underneath your fabric to create a clear block print.

3) Children can just print in straight rows for a simple and easy effect.

4) Try and play with different patterns with your wood stamps to create different designs. There is so much you can do with just one block by rotating it and placing it in different positions.

5) Use Colouricious fabric paints which you simply iron to fix. The fabric paints that we recommend are very reliable. When they have been fixed the colour stays permanent and you can wash your fabric up to 40 degrees without damaging the paint. Also the fabric stays soft and is not hardened by this paint.

Printing Techniques on Fabric

Double Wooden Printing Blocks
Meet our new exciting wooden printing blocks that are made for double block printing. Discover a very exciting method of block printing with two matching wooden printing blocks. These printing techniques on fabric lend themselves to so many textile art ideas.
  printing techniques on fabric

If you love block printing and have been creating your own textiles for some time now, have a go at double block printing. Essentially there are two wooden printing blocks – one is a solid design and the other is an outline design. Block printing with two blocks is very quick easy and effective. First you charge up the solid design block with your fabric paint and press down onto your fabric – remember to have a foam mat underneath. Secondly you charge up the outline block with a contrasting colour. Hover this block over the first print, eyeball the designs so that it is exactly on top of the previous one and print. Do not worry if the resolution is not 100% accurate as that is all part of the charm and delight of hand printed fabric. These blocks are very rare and unique. Many of you will never have seen double block printing before. To our knowledge we are the only place where you can buy these in the western world. You will love them!
