Hand Printed Fabric

I printed more fabric and this time I used my old roller stamps (tutorial for roller stamps) to make the marks.
It was on plain white cotton and coloured with liquitex inks mixed with fabric medium. I rinsed them out and the colours stayed in but the fabric is very stiff. 
On the yellow sample piece one end is motley, this is because I tried something else at that end for the background colour (Adirondack colour wash) [which I sprayed on last] but it came out really orangey which I didn't like so I tried rinsing it out.




I started embroidery stitching on the blue fabric, but I'm not sure how much I will do as it's so stiff and makes my fingers sore.
