Mark Making - Stencil Printing onto Fabric

I love my Gocco but it's great to experiment with other printing techniques so this week I've been having ago at stencil printing onto fabric. I used Lena Corwins fantastic book 'Printing by Hand' as a guide and so far have been quite pleased with the results. The only negative i found was that the stencil deteriorates relatively quickly so I only managed to print a few pieces off however the positive is you can cut as many screens as you like and there's no stencil making costs.
My sewing skills only go as far as cushions so I guess that's what these fabric squares will end up as.
