Print, Stitch, Stuff

My kids and I recently had a week vacation that was ideal to test out some homemade screen printing. I asked my son to draw his favorite animal. He drew a thorny devil. We traced it onto some chiffon fabric and placed the fabric in a embroidery hoop. After that we painted Mod Podge on the fabric everywhere we did not want ink to come though. Once it dried we added some screen printing ink and I cut a cereal box up to make a squeegie. The print worked great. Since we had a 7 hour drive home I decided to add some embroidery details. The possibilities are pretty endless with this. I can't wait to start another one!
