Not exempt to the commercial impulse, I screenprinted on shiny sateen fabric the silhouettes of animals and then made them into throw pillows. I did this solely for the purpose of selling them and making a little extra cash off of obligatory gift giving. So far, they have been a middling success (nothing close to the tentacles), but they involved such little effot to make that it has paid off in the end. I made the silhouettes by cutting the shapes out of paper, and then using those paper shapes to burn the screen stencil. These are available for sale at Frosty Darling in Salt Lake City should you be so interested.
