Printing on Fabric - Utensil canister

Hi there my lovelies

In an earlier post I mentioned I had been playing with printing on fabric. (see

In preparation for the painting of the house, and upon arrival of some wonderful Stampin' Up items, I decided to revamp my terracotta coffee canister that I have been using for my utensils (I have become a coffee snob since we got our machine and so don't have instant in my house, no more, no more!).

So, the canister, being terracotta, was painted first with a coat of White Knight Tile and Laminate undercoat.

Then, when dry, I topped it with a coat of Dulux White Duck (quarter).

My image for printing was using the knife and fork image from Graphics Fairy, and also some text. I merged them together and played in Photoshop until I was happy with the results.., then printed away.

If you missed the previous blog, where I very briefly mention the "how to", here it is again..

  • Using A4 print labels - just like the ones you use for envelopes, only A4 - stick this to your fabric.
  • Trim the fabric to size ensuring there are no stray threads....and print away!!

Easy hey!!

To embellish, I die-cut my printed fabric on my new (woo hooooo!) Stampin' Up Big Shot, punched a couple of holes and attached some lovely Jumbo Eyelets (again, thanks Stampin' Up!!).

Tie with twine...and there we have it!!

I seriously need to find my camera charger, as my phone isn't cutting the photo taking, but you get the idea.

I love the result, so will do my sugar and tea canisters next.

Hugs to you all!! Come on over for some coffee!!

Ok...I am loving this! I have several terra cotta pots I have painted and then painted numbers on them like the Anthropologie ones...I love this for the sheer fact I can redecorate my pots at a moment's notice if I so chose. Love the detailing!!!
