Storage bags with lino printing
How to do it
Print the designs from the PDF file at the bottom of this page. Shade on the back using a pencil. Place the print onto a lino block, attach it onto the block so it doesn't slide. Draw onto the design with a pencil. Remove the print once the design is copied onto the lino block.
Cut away the rubber background around the design with a lino cutter to make a raised design.
Cut away excess lino from the lino block and use it, for example, for other designs. Avoid accidentally spreading ink by cutting off the edges at an angle.
Place a piece of plastic inside the bag prior to printing.
Make straight rows by attaching a piece of masking tape onto the fabric bag, and mark the distance between the prints on the masking tape.
Pour fabric paint onto a piece of card. Dab a foam stencil brush in the paint, saturating it with paint.
Dab paint onto the lino design. Wipe off any excess paint off the edges. A tip: Make a couple of test prints on an old piece of fabric or paper.
Print designs onto the fabric bag.
Fix the prints with an iron on a cotton setting.
