First attempt at the screen is alright. I think the fabric I used was too thick - I tried it out on a cheap, storebought canvas bag. There isn't a whole lot of detail, but you can totally tell who it is and stuff.

Now, I'm going to test it out on a couple of other types of fabric and see if I can't get it to work out nicer on some broadcloth. I might make the bags double-layered broadcloth if this works.

On the whole, though..

And here it is on a finer weave of cloth. OMG, I love it!!

thanks! Yeah, I had a pencil sketch first, but otherwise, I just painted it on the screen. ^_^

Hahah... Irony, right? I don't have enough money to buy green fabric.

This is getting really sad.

HAH!!! FOUND SOME!! (I is so lucky!)

Sure, I'll make you one... do you want silver on green? It's kind of a dark green.

The dark Snape on the light background looks great!

yeah, i think the canvas was too coarse a weave for it to turn out right. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to use it, but that other one turned out great. ^_^

I might make T-shirts in addition to the tote bags if I can manage the up-front money.

Oh wow! Are you just doing this one design?

well, I can't afford to buy another screen just yet. As it is, I am borrowing this one, and the rest of my money went to buying the inks.

If I can sell two of these as either bags or t-shirts, though, I'll have enough for another screen - and you know what that means?? (Snape on the front, Harry on the back)

Yay! I'll have some for sale on Sunday. I think $25 each for large over-the-shoulder bags. I'll take a picture of it tonight to show you what it's like. ^_^

thanks!!

It was such a relief when it turned out. I was worried 'cause this was the first time I'd screen-printed in AGES.

Wow, that came out fantastic! I've never tried screen printing, I've always sent designs to the pros since I would be hopeless at it. I would definitely be up for a shirt if you're going to be selling them!

Sure! What size. I've got a few in green, white, and black. Are there any colors you'd like specifically?

Date: 2009-04-22 08:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] acatnamedeaster.insanejournal.com
Black of course and unfortunately a large right now. Let me know how much and where to send the payment!

From: [identity profile] littleblackbow.insanejournal.com
would you like it black with silver or black with white? ^_^

And you can send it to my paypal address: rana @chibitoaster. com

I wish I knew how much to charge. The bags are $25, so... *Shrug*

Sent and if it's actually more than what I sent over let me know since I just went by what my last batch of shirts ran.

Guess who's next when I get the screens in? Well, I mean, after Harry...

Our darling Mr. Black, perhaps?

I was actually thinking Padfoot and Moony - maybe the two of them gazing at a moon while sitting out at the edge of the woods? I draw that a lot, and I think even non-hp fans would like it.

Oh yes. Definitely. That would be adorable. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
