One of the fun things about designing your own fabric by the metre is adding a lovely selvedge print. The selvedge is the finished edge of the fabric and usually on printed fabric you’ll see the designers name and manufacturers name as well as the name of the print. As my fabric is hand printed I definitely wanted to add that fact so I’ve put the design name, my name and the text – Hand Printed in Sheffield, England. I’ve also added a small element of the design for a little bit of fun. I can see me getting more and more adventurous with the selvedge as I get more screens made, it’s quite easy to get carried away but it’s just another perfect opportunity to be creative and give my fabric a little something extra.
As soon as the screens are ready I’ll be posting pics of the fabric as well as the cute new selvedge.
