The fabric in the middle has been hand-printed using linoleum relief plates.  Others show fabric samples  using my images.  

Introducing Red Sparrow Press!  This will be a line of letterpress cards from my linoleum print images.  Watch for these at MockingBird Handprints opening soon at the Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio!

vintage pillow shams go modern

Pillows, much needed, they add color and comfort!  I love using vintage textiles when possible, the blue linen shams were found at a flea market in Paris this past summer.  I dyed and printed and added foiled fox to fronts so they are now contemporary and ready to be added to someones home!

hand designed fabrics for chair

I had a commission for two chairs and the couple wanted a oceanic theme to the fabrics.  All fabrics started out white and I worked with four different fabric bases and colors for this project.  This is a wonderful rayon/cotton upholstery weight fabric, wish I had more of it! It took the dyes well and it had a heavy weave but was easy to print on.

This next fabric is an organic cotton, heavy for upholstery, I used different image but in all fabrics I have linking images that appear in all.

This is a linen fabric and these three fabrics made the chairs.  I'll try to post  a picture of chair if I can find it.  I have all three fabrics together in next picture.  My cording was the straw/goldish color, you can see it hanging with the other fabrics.

My clients were moving and I was under a time crunch as there house sold on the first day they had it on the market, it all worked out but my upholsters delivered it the day they moved so I did not get a picture......you can see more of my work on my website
www.janebishopdesigns.com  let me know what you think.  I'll be opening a studio/retail space very soon so I'll give those details shortly.  Good night,  Jane
