houses i mean rooftops

I really should learn my lesson by now and give my prints the simplest name possible. I know that I'm going to end up calling my new 'rooftops' print 'houses' like I do with my other prints. Thankfully Bee is often on standby to correct me.

Anyway, it's not quite up in the shop yet, but here's some progress shots of the new rooftops print:

houses original tile sketch
First, the original sketch (with shadow of the halfdrop repeat to see how it interlocks)

printing rooftops
Then, printing! This is looking down at the screen as it sits on the fabric. Mmmm a lovely deep red on organic cotton/hemp.

rooftops - freshly printed
Et voila - printed rooftops stretching into the distance.

We've also printed it in a lovely white on natural - mmmmm.

I'll put it up in the shop after the Melbourne Design Market. Which I should probably have mentioned earlier. Yep we'll be at the MDM yet again this year! On June 14th (next Sunday) at Fed Square as usual. Hope to see you there!
