Gotland Locks Kindle Covers and Screen Printing Samples

I worked all day to finish editing videos and write PDF’s for my upcoming Experimental Screen Printing class. I will be making an announcement over at The Felting and Fiber Studio soon about the dates for the class and all the relevant registration information.

These are a couple of photos of the samples that I made for the class. I really enjoyed making this class as I love the screen printing process. And it makes some really cool looking felt that can then be used for other projects. I made a Christmas present from some of this type of screen printed felt but will have to show it to you after Christmas.

And I sewed up a couple of Kindle covers from the felted Gotland locks that I made a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty tricky sewing them since the felt was so thick and it was difficult to get under the presser foot. I broke one needle but finally made it through. I didn’t have a heavy needle like a jeans needle, that would have worked much better. I’m giving one as a gift and perhaps I will sell the other one. We got more snow here so I’ll be up at the ski hill this weekend taking a few runs. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a happy holiday season!

  1. I’m Loving the screen prints Ruth and eagerly awaiting more info on the class! Well done on persevering with the kindle covers, I had a very similar experience adding straps to my Gotland lock bag, broke the first needle, managed to find a leather needle and managed to bend that one too!

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
