hot off the press..

I recently teamed up with a local printer to recreate some of my applique and block print styles as screen prints.

A big wheel t-shirt emerging from the dryer.

I had so much fun choosing ink colors. This dino combo is a little flashback to my love of neon back in the 80s.

As much as I love to sew, and create very tactile, labor intensive, unique t-shirts and onesies, I must say I absolutely love the production speed of screen printing!! In the time it took us to make 36 Big Wheels, I would probably have finished only 6 applique styles. Sign me up! I'll definitely be adding more screen printed styles to my collection. To see the current batch, visit the Wonder Threads shop.

Oh and I finally created a facebook page! Like!

Happy Earth Day!

On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I came across some beautiful little flower gardens at the Aria Hotel shopping mall. I had to touch these amazing poppies to confirm they were real and not paper!

Happy Earth Day!
