Jen, thank you so much for delivering such a great product. You are truly such a talented little kitty 😘 The quality of this product is amazing. Jen was the perfect person to pull our vision together. She was also quick to offer advice and tips to ensure we were able to make the best prints possible. Such an easy way to jazz up wedding invites. It’s perfect for anyone interested in being a hands on type of person. This is the second project we’ve commissioned Jen to do and could not be happier with the results. I look forward to working with Jen again!

I'm in love with this beautiful mermaid. I framed it to play on the scales. It was shipped quickly and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!!

About

Printing by hand in the heart of the prairies.

Jitterbug Handmade was born out of a restless desire to print and create patterns. It's the creation of Jen Schier, a graphic/web designer with a background in art history.


In the summer of 2015, I began branching out further from graphic design and became interested in different media. Starting with watercolour and progressing into print making, everything came together with the first pattern I created using with one of my watercolour fruit paintings. Right away I found that pattern making was a medium I wanted to dive into it completely.

Wanting to create and print my own patterns on textiles, I realized block printing could be done easily at home with my own linocut stamps and hand-mixed inks. I’ve been printing patterns and prints in my home studio ever since.


You can find my watercolour patterns which are now available as digitally printed fabrics at JitterbugHandmade.com.

*The name of Jitterbug came from my late father's pet name for myself. This little "jitterbug" was my first linocut and now serves as my logo!
