Handprinting tutorials

With so many of you signing up for Handprinted: a fabric swap III (nine groups already - woohoo!), I thought I'd better start filling your heads with the many ways you can tackle printing by hand...

A great tutorial from Line Across that shows just how easy it is to make your own stamps
Tutorial for a very cool monoprint technique from Design Mom
Learn how to print with stencils from Jezze Prints
And come back in a couple of days for links to some screen printing tutorials : )


  1. I am really excited about this swap and am going to start pinning some ideas!!

  2. Thanks for including my tutorial! I sorry to have to miss the swap this time round.

  3. I'm getting excited about this project and I have some ink questions and need a little direction. I haven't been super happy with the fabric ink I have so I am thinking I want to go with screen printing ink with a block print. Would I be better off using a foam roller or flat (like with paper)? How about the work surface - put a piece of foam under the fabric so it has a little give? I haven't used lino on fabric so any insights would be helpful! Thanks!

  4. Hi Jessica, I know a lot of people use a normal brayer (rollert thingy) but I've actually had my best results by dabbing the ink on evenly with a foam brush (available at any art/craft shop, super cheap). I've never put anything under my fabric for block printing but who knows, it may help! Let us know if you give it a try!


I love to hear your thoughts, thanks so much for taking the time to comment! If you have a question to ask, I will answer it here (and by email as well, if I can track down your email address). I would love to reply to every single comment but until Blogger makes it easier to reply by email, please know that I am so happy you stopped by : )
