Yardwork on Etsy

I got around to wanting to browse Etsy today and I came across the designs of Yardwork.The first two designs are handprinted, and the last two designs are digitally printed in N.C. , I just love them! I have always wanted to learn how to do this sometime, I wondered if it was a difficult process. Also, I wondered how many mistakes are made in the process because lord knows how much photo paper I go through trying to make one print right! I finally know all the work that goes into such a process. The artist has so kindly described, in detail, her work process, which is a rarity. After reading it, I have so much more respect for artists that handprint fabric because it sounds like a very long , difficult process that requires lots of supplies to come up with the end result. I will definitely stick to what I know for now, lol! I will stick to buying from talented artist that are experts at what they do. If you would like to read about the process, click here. By the way, I love the way the artist refers to the variations and irregularities of each fabric design as "happy accidents", what a great way to look at it! Here are some of my favorites from her shop:


Waves of Grain (one yard) $35
(hand-printed)


Dandelion-Charcoal (18x26 inches) $15
(hand-printed)


Greenware (one yard) $27
(digitally printed)


Bebop (one yard) $27
(digitally printed)
