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.

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.
