Hand dyed silk screened cotton aprons

Christmas presents made for friends included these two aprons.

I created thermofax screens at home using my sketches of herbs from our garden.

One apron was printed with thickened procion MX dyes, the other printed with textile paint.

The thickened dyes produced a softer image, whilst paint gave a crisper line.

    Pamela, I hadn’t checked your blog for a while but I can see you’ve been hard at work. The aprons are dazzling and you have become so confident in your drawing skills, which shows through the bold designs.
