How to Block Print Fabric

block print fabric

I first learned to block print in the 7th grade, and I’ll never forget it.  I carved a linoleum block with the face of a panda and then printed it directly onto fabric using ink.  Let me tell you – it’s quite satisfying to carve up a block of linoleum.  Not only are you making a project, but you’re getting daily frustrations out of your system.  It’s great.  What is also great is the pattern that the linoleum block printing makes.  It’s not quite even, but that is the charming part about it.  Learn how to block print not just because it’s satisfying, but because once you get the block cut it’s quick and easy.
