Screen Printed Vintage Motorcycle Bag

As part of my “learn twelve new things” this year, I signed up for screen printing class at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center in downtown Columbus Ohio.  I had no idea what to expect when I started and I can honestly say, I have been pleasantly surprised!

What is screen printing?  It is the method of passing ink through a screen – sort of like a stencil.  I will be showing you some of the screens I have made in the coming weeks, but right now I’d like to show you my first project. 

It’s a cool looking military inspired bag with a screen printed vintage motorcycle image. Looks amazing in person!

I think these bags were made for the IPad - fits like a glove!  Would make really nice Father’s Day gifts

So what do you think?  I plan on doing some “girly images” in the future – maybe I can bedazzle them :)

If you like these items, they can be purchased in my Etsy Shop.

Hi Tam, stopping by from WOW me Wednesday Link Party. That bag turned out great! I hadn't heard about screen printing, but it seems cool! I hope you show us more of your projects and the how to!
I'm your newest follower and I'd LOVE if you stopped by my blog some day.

That looks really great. I know nothing about screen printing but I have a bit of a fascination with it. Your bag looks fantastic!

Great bag - sometimes I think I'd like to learn how to do screen printing. Too many interests and not enough time.
