I was perusing photos of delicious, mid-century Scandinavian fabrics online this morning and noticed many of the designs featured repeating, stylized leaves. I then thought about printing onto fabric using actual leaves and got to work straight away.
I bought this canvas from a garage sale for 50 cents NZD last weekend, so I printed onto it using acrylic paint and leaves found in my garden. I tested a patch first and laundered it to find that the print held up quite well, so I proceeded with a large print. This evening, I whipped up this tote bag using the fabric and made the straps extra long for comfort, as I often like to wear a tote bag around my shoulder in lieu of a purse.
I am quite pleased with the overall outcome.
