Simple stencils

I have had the itch to learn how to create my own textiles designs via screenprinting lately. But in my effort to cut down on my creative distractions, I have put off on taking a course.

Of course I'm still daydreaming about it and enviously watching screenprinting diy videos across the web. Luckily I came across a simple tutorial that will give me a chance to experiment in a quick and easy way. So Jessica Jones, from How About Oranges, stenciled scarf tutorial isn't exactly screenprinting but it's close!

I'm thinking of giving it a try this weekend. I have a few flawed tote bags lying around that I need to repurpose. I'm thinking cutting up some freezer paper while sipping some chai and watching Twin Peaks is a good way to enjoy these gloomy rainy March days.

You can find the scarf tutorial HERE.


  1. That scarf is beautiful! Be sure to tell us when/if you take that screenprinting course. My sister took one once and I'd be curious to hear what yours is like.

  2. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [16 Mar 01:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  3. ditto, pretty pretty scarf! i want one! came to you via sf etsy :)

    and yes, it's hard when you come up with all sorts of stuff you want to create and clearly there's not enough time in the day to do it all. always nice to make note of it for future projects.

  4. hey lauren, if you have any silkscreen materials, i would be happy to teach you. i just do not have a setup currently :/
