New Design based on vintage grain sack with a hint of colour

Recently I have been researching some old grain sack designs and thought how great and timeless these designs are.  I noticed that for some reason most gain sacks had a coloured stripe down either the side or middle of the design.  Up until now I have only been working with black, so today I started a new design which will encompass this new coloured stripe.

 Unlike the previous designs, this will have to be printed in two stages using two screens to complete the full design.  I am going to experiment with this design, not only on cushions but also on sacks.  Sacks are something I have been thinking about recently as they can be used to keep a number of different things in while adding to that shabby chic and rustic look.  I have just recently made a sack for kindling wood to go in a fireplace based on a traditional grain sack design.  I am bored stiff with the usual basket that everyone has!  Anyway above is the design that I have recently produced and will be transferring to screen in the next two days. As soon as I have  created some products I will post them on my blog and website.

Lots of love
