Block Shop scarves are the most beautiful, wearable scarves you’ll ever own. They’re an Indian textile company founded by sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman. They work with the Chhipa family of master printers based in Bagru, India, who have been hand block printing with natural dyes for over 350 years. Their textiles are printed one at a time with carved wooden blocks and non-toxic vegetable dyes on the finest Indian silk-cotton blend.

Saw the top picture today (whoever that teacher is, you are amazing. Thanks for posting it) and got inspired to make my own, but a small linoleum block version.

Literally none of my students appreciate this joke. I shall nerd-laugh to myself then.

Block Printing | Everything Golden

Long time readers will know how much I love block printing. I think it’s the carving that I enjoy the most - it’s so rewarding seeing your design ‘come to life’ and seeing it printed onto fabric or paper. This DIY is to make napkins but you can print onto anything - you could even block print a repeat pattern onto a plain quilt cover! If you’re not sure about what to design, do a search on google and get inspired. You just might find a new passion!

Block Printing

A long time ago we learned our first lesson about block printing with linocut at school. Now we spotted Derrick Castle, designer and typographer from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Living in Nashville, he has been exposed to mixology and more modern interpretations of classic cocktails through friends that he has in the bartending industry. To pay tribute to some of his favorite classic cocktails he started with this series of block prints you can see above. As a city were music is born and celebrated every day he dedicated some works also to this soundful center of the south. Enjoy his work!

DIY Dice Pouch

My fella and I are avid D&D players and over the years we’ve collected a lot of dice so I figured I’d make some special pouches (instead of using old Crown Royal bags) 

Here’s my simple little process:

1. Find yourself a complete set of dice at your local gaming store (mine were a gift from Phoenix Fire Games, thanks guys!)

2. Make your own stamp! I like to use Speedball products (note: this step is optional)

3. Cut your fabrics to your desired size and sew ‘em up (they can easily be handsewn)

4. Use a safety pin to slide your string through the seam

And that’s it! Using a machine, and block printing only took me half an hour to make six bags. I’m planning on giving these away to some fellow players for Christmas. Happy crafting!
