Screenprinting experience!

This weekend was certainly an eventful one!

We needed some totes that our customers could use over and over again, compared to the plastic ones we're used to handing out at shows. So we decided to make some simple totes!

My son helped screen print the images, and my daughters will be sewing up the bags. We can proudly say we made all of them ourselves, from start to finish!

Here we have all the pieces cut out... took us all night!
Prepping the screens/alignment...
And the printing begins!At first we laid the pieces out on the table to dry, as the lines that ran across the ceiling weren't hung up yet...we ran out of room though, so we were all scrambling around like chickens with our heads cut off.Here's a picture from under the clothes lines--Much better! They were running back and forth across our studio.After those were dried, the pink heart was ready to go on!
VOILA!Aren't these cool? There's a nifty little pocket on the inside as well. It's quite a big bag, so it's a perfect shopper! We at boojiboo are pretty excited...

Happy Monday!

Pleas tell me these are going to be sold in your store as well (I'll probably never get to go to a show since I live way too far away).

You definitely should offer them in the shop - I don't suppose you will offer your tote making services for other biz's in the future? If so - I'm first in line!!! THEY LOOK FAB!
