Printer's Block Pillow

Am I the only one who buys things at the 
thrift store and has no idea what I am buying?

I think it is some kind of print block...
I asked the art teacher and she thought it might be Chinese.

It definitely has some damage...

I tried printing with it to see what I'd get.

I pounced on some black paint with a sponge brush and 
pressed it down on fabric.

and wow! a print!

I tried printing it on other fabrics with different textures.

Then I tried painting the print.

I'm not sure what I was painting but it came out looking pretty nice.

Almost looks like a zucchini, don't ya think? 

I added some piping and it made a cute little pillow!

I hope you enjoyed this project and you'll take a look at my Amazon Shop for craft supplies I recommend. Also while you're here please sign up for the Homeroad emails on my sidebar so I can send my latest DIY post straight to you.
