I should have mentioned in my previous post that the fabric with writing on it is a commercial print. Here’s what it looked like before I started messing with it.
I’m not positive, but I think my Mom might have gotten it for me when she was either in San Francisco or New York City visiting my sister.
It’s a Timeless Treasures print. The selvedge says "DS 1023 ‘Optic’ by David Sweet"
I haven’t really known what to do with it until now. I didn’t dislike it before, but now that I’m in the frame of mind of contemplating printing and dyeing on commercial fabric — this kind of thing has possibilities!
It’s also given me some ideas for creating my own fabric with text on it. I know I’m not the first to think of it, so I’m not claiming brilliance or anything, but I look forward to experimenting!
