Printing your own fabric opens up an entire new world of design, especially for quilters, sewists, and other textile artists. Until now, the process of printing with dyes could seem difficult to learn and even harder to implement. But world-renowned quilting and surface design artists Carol Soderlund and Melanie Testa have taken all the stumbling blocks out of the way of would-be fabric dyers and printers. This 144 page full color book is packed with the information you need to easily start printing your own fabrics.

With step by step advice, instruction, and photographs, this book is a master class in using dyes and low-tech equipment to print your own fabric, and it begins at the beginning. If you’ve never handled dyes before, never designed your own print motifs, aren’t even sure what supplies or space you might need, everything you want to know is here. More advanced students will value the in-depth presentation of techniques, tools, and insights into approaching fabric printing as an art and taking your work to the next level.

Please Note: Melly will gladly sign your copy of Playful Fabric Printing.

I love to dye my own fabric, but I haven't been able to do so for awhile. This book has techniques I used to use plus some new ones. I'm very glad to have found it. And it came quickly and in perfect condition.
