I just discovered a very soft washable inkjet printable cotton so i printed the Crow Feather Arrow from my drawing for Old Man Crow’s song Entropy  and am quilting it onto a very old piece of grey silk from a favourite pair of shorts for Jude Hill’s Magic Feather Project!

    What an interesting idea to print on washable fabric and what keeps the ink from washing out? It’s a fabulous drawing and love the drawing that it came from. I will have to have a long look at your blog. Thanks for your nice comments on my feather and at my blog. 🙂 Happy Stitching to you!!!

      Hi Tammy, I don’t know what ingredient the manufacturers have used to stop the inkjet dye washing out but it needs to be rinsed gently ater printing & there was no bleed! y’know seeing your beautiful feather with the energy lines stitched around it gave me the impetus to have a go with this one. Have never quilted anything before joining Jude’s Magic Diaries. Love exploring the textures and shadows that stitching one piece of cloth to another creates, very different to embroidery on a hoop alongside being part of such an inspiring worldwide sewing circle.
