Get your scarf on!

I'm loving screen printing! Well, my version of screen printing anyway. I have my sis Renee print a vinyl image and reverse weed it so it becomes my stencil. Then I use Tulip brand fabric paint and brush it on with a foam brush. Let it dry a few hours and apply another coat. When I peel off the vinyl I'm amazed at how there is little to no bleeding of the paint. My favorite thing and gift to make are these jersey scarves. I buy tons of jersey fabric, around 2 & 1/2 yards and can make approx. 4 scarves from it. Around 15'' wide, 90'' or so long, depending on your preference. So are you ready to get your scarf on?
