Seeing how the reuseable food wraps are made with fabric -- and I love to 'Pickle' fabric -- it hit me instantly: Pickle would totally rock this!
"We are a collaboration waiting to happen," I boldly messaged Cheryl.
A few coffee meet-ups later, I set off to work on these Pickle cat wraps. Stamping one face at a time.
To jive to my ethos of not generating new waste, I used whatever cotton fabric I had on hand to produce 3 dozen big squares. Calico / muslin brings out the Pickle prints, and a blue Batik cotton because I like batik, coincidentally matching the blue and black cat stamps.
The textile ink was carefully ironed to set. And the next step was getting Cheryl to treat my fabric in her special resin-beeswax formula and work her magic.
Behold the 12 sets of Juanita Tortilla individually hand-printed Pickle cat wraps. Available online:
While my printed fabric is not labelled with 'Juanita Tortilla' or 'Pickled Pockets' (a lesson for next time), everyone should recognise whose face that is! Good ol' Pickle.
