I mentioned wedding invites in my last post and since they've arrived with recipients, I can officially share another Inspiredby Felix project that's been taking up a bit of mental space recently!
As you may know, I was a little hooked after doing a days screen printing with Sue. Well I got this idea of printing wedding invites onto tea-towels.... so I did a drawing (got to love those Sharpie pens!) with most of the information on (dates and address have been fuzzed to protect the innocent!), and with Sue's help got it transferred to a screen.
We printed 50 tea-towels over two sessions lasting about four hours each. All the invites (plus spares) were hand screen-printed in the first session, in a two-person routine that became second nature after an hour. These were spread out over Sue's house in order to dry!
And in the second session, a few days later, we added the colours using hand-cut templates.
I ended up folding these with an information leaflet, wrapped in a printed cardboard loop, packaged in smart white envelopes with sketched labels. Special thanks go out to my Mum who ironed and folded the vast majority!
I'm pleased to say the response has been fab, and I even got a fabric reply from my cousin, and a wonderful handmade card from my Aunty....craftiness breeds craftiness!
