Block Printed Fabrics

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

I've searched all my sources for block print fabrics, and none of the ones I know about have the perfect 'navy print on a white or cream background' that I need for a client's drapes.

Then I got to thinking...I'm pretty crafty, maybe I could get some white linen and a couple of antique printing blocks that are everywhere at flea markets, and try my hand at fabric printing.

This floral block would be very pretty with lots of white space.


We were imagining a paisley print, like this Peter Dunham fabric, but in white and navy and with more white space.


I like this paisley block or even this cheapy one.


Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Something like the fabric used for the curtains below would be ideal, though I know the design is more intricate than I could probably pull off:




OR! Does anyone know of a good source for fabric like this, in the same colors (I've checked all the usual sources for Indienne and block-printed textiles)?
