Screen print Wall Hanging Art

I've always been really into creating T-shirts. My friends and i have made several shirts over the years. The only thing is that i usually use iron on transfers. However, what happens after a few washes, is the transfers start peeling off. When i started making shirts for my kids i wanted to create images on fabric that wouldn't peel off. Especially because my kids put everything in their mouths! After seeing one of my favorite bloggers post about screen printing, i decided i would give it a try. Here is the post if you want to see it.

The post will give you information one where to buy things. Here's how i created some wall hanging art for my home. 

First i used my circuit software to create images. Make sure when cutting the images, mirror the image. Then i cut the image on vinyl. After the images were cut i adhered the vinyl onto my screen.


After applying the vinyl, put painters tape on all the dead space so that ink will not get through. When your ready, take some ink and put it on the screen.


After putting the ink on the screen, use the squeegee and swipe the ink over the image.

I usually swipe firmly about 3 times to make sure the ink goes through. I put the extra ink back into the container. When your down pull the fabric away from the screen and you're done!!!
