Printed fabric brush roll


For a recent swap, we had to print our own fabric, then make our partner something with it. Knowing my partner was an extremely good artist, I thought a watercolour brush holder would be useful. I printed the fabric with a foam stamp that I had made on an Angie Hughes course. I used lumiere paints in two colours. I then put in some thin wadding and machined over it first of all with a variegated orange thread, and then criss crossed it with a metallic one.
I made a backing with the openings for the brushes, and sewed the whole thing together.
Pattie was really pleased with it.
