How to print Fabric by Zeena Shah

Hello! Popping in with a quick update to share the results of a super-easy project from Zeena Shah‘s new book, How to Print Fabric: Kitchen-table techniques for over 20 hand-printed home accessories.

I’ve known Zeena for quite a few years, since she ran a popular workshop at one of my events, and rolled up with her suitcase in the most organised and professional of fashions! She’s such a natural and enthusiastic teacher that I knew her book would be accessible to everyone, crafting newbies or more advanced enthusiasts!

I picked out one of the easiest printing techniques to try (although none look too tricky) and applied the technique to some plain linen napkins, simply using bleach and a pencil. The full instructions are in the book as well as lots of other suggestions, and craft projects to make with your newly-designed fabric.

Congratulations Zeena on your new book – it’s coming out in a few weeks but you can pre-order it here.
