Update: Clerical Stoles for Smaller Budgets

In mid-September I posted about my studio challenge to design one of a kind artistic stoles at a more modest price point than my current work.  The solution must maintain the standards of construction that I use for the rest of my work.

After I selected fabric from my inventory, I prepared each selection to be painted with an existing motif from my collection.  Stencils, screen prints, and simple masking are all put to use. The second photograph show the five stoles after the paint dried.  The next step is to hang them on the design wall for evaluation.  Is there enough pattern?  Contrast?

My daughter and shop partner challenged me to have six stoles priced at $75 in our Etsy shop, fibergig, by October 15.  I do not want to disappoint her.

mid week 2 and newsletter 004thermafax 003

This week’s studio work includes using products from one of our fellow Etsy shops, PG Fiber2Art. They market thermofax screens which are great for applying painted design to paper or fabric. We had the BOLD made for our new fiber tags. We ordered our fibergig name in two sizes, one for bags and one for garment labels.

Please visit their shop. You will be inspired.
