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.
