Fish Print Blanket.  A recent project for a special little boy with an underwater themed bedroom.

I screen-printed the simple fish shapes  individually onto the crinkle cotton fabric. I used paper stencils on the screens.  The white bubble circles were stencil printed on at the end.   The process was organinic, adding prints randomly wherever it felt right.

I purchased the crinkle cotton from a local fabric shop, cut it into a square, then hemmed the whole blanket.  Once the printing was complete, I pressed each print well to set the ink.

This will be the perfect prop for teaching the new little owner that seet nursery rhyme

One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive.
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let him go again.
Why did I let it go,
Because he bit my finger so!
Which finger did he bite?
This little finger on my right!

Interesting Fact – Did you know that this well-known nursery rhyme started out referencing a hare!  .  This counting out rhyme first appeared in Mother Gooses”s Melody in 1765.  Reference

More Fish Print – I also printed some fish patterns onto a blue and white check shirt cotton fabric.  I amy make this up into a toy bag.

A fun project with a personal touch.  Have a  look at some of our other printing projects we have completed.
