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!

Craft Custom Buttons

Craft Custom Buttons

Block printing your own craft custom buttons is very creative and a wonderful way of recycling your old buttons, this is an easy craft idea where you simply paint an old button with some gesso which is a primer. When the gesso is dry you can then paint your button with acrylics and decorate with glitter pens and dimensional pens. Stitch the buttons onto some fabric that you have been block printing onto. Your craft custom buttons will be unique and special and help save the world. Stitch away till your heart’s content. Never has sewing on buttons been so much fun.
