New Screen Printed Scandinavian Dolls and Doll Kits by Jane Foster

I've finally got round to screen printing my new Scandinavian style Russian dolls! Here they are below, available here. I really enjoyed designing these - you can buy them as a kit to make the mum and four children or you can buy the larger red and yellow ones ready made.













My handmade quilts / bedspreads past and present - Jane Foster

Some of you probably don't know that I've loved making the odd quilt / bedspread over the past few years. As I've a huge passion for vintage and retro fabrics, you might like to have a look at the vibrant, multi coloured snap shots here below. I also have a Pinterest site here dedicated to my quilts and created a board for Pinterest to show fabulous quilts made by some of the world's fabulous quilt makers around the world, which others can pin to. Do have a look as there are over 400 examples and  over 600,000 followers!

Screen Printing With Children - Jane Foster

I spent this morning cutting paper stencils with my 7 year old daughter and then screen printing her designs onto bags and fabric with her.  It was smashing  - I love spending time with her doing this and we both get very excited by the results! (she was so exhausted, she had to have a large hot chocolate and sit down after!)
The process is quite easy - draw a simple design, cut out with a craft knife or sharp scissors, lay the various pieces on to a blank silk screen and then screen print!

These methods will be shown on my beginner screen printing courses.
