I'm so glad I signed up for Leslie's Handprinted fabric swap. And I haven't even received anything yet. I just really enjoyed the challenge of doing something different from my usual crafting repertoire. Something that required a bit of thought and a bit of research and a bit of supplies shopping.
In keeping with my ongoing obsession with spotted fabrics I wanted to create a jumbo sized honeycomb spot. The spacing was important to make it work. After musing on how to achieve it I decided to draw a chalk grid and stamp with a carrot.
It didn't take too long, and I actually found the stamping quite meditative. There were some leftover bits but I think I need to plan another evening for quiet, contemplative, carrot stamping because I'm so pleased with the results. Regular (although not perfect) and bold (yet subtly textured).
Hope my fellow swappers like it too.
