A Starry Story...

A new jumper at last! Here is the result of all those stars I was printing yesterday in a little gif animation for you showing a peek into the slouch sweater forming process...I'd love to know what you think?
A Starry Story...
I have wanted to make a starry top for ages and these navy blue marle sweaters are just the ticket for such a design. I have named it to go along with the Dark is the Night Locket and I have a feeling there will be more in this little celestial line. I do like stars I do!

Dark is the Night Slouch Sweaters will be available soon...watch this space!

Lovely Lee! Also interested in your process for the printing- do you hand cut each star out of the stencil? I usually use light sensitive- emulsion but have also the white sticky stuff -but have yet to use it... Love the simplicity of it!

Thank you everyone!

Mel - I always use photo emulsion too...the paper image here is just so I can see if the design definitely fits the clothing before I make the actual negative to burn the screen. I didn't get a picture of the finished screen before I made the animation unfortunately!
