Printing/Painting on Fabric

After the new printed fabric was dry, I decided to take a picture of it because I wanted to document it, so I can see how much lighter the fabric gets after I wash it. When the fence is on the table, and I'm printing from it, I can't tell if the fence shapes are straight or not. I was pretty surprised to see that the left side of the printed image is REALLY warped. I had no idea. I drew red lines on the picture of the fabric to show what I'm talking about.

I thought I was using the same piece of fence I used to print the fabric I showed on April 19th and on April 17th,. The shapes on those pieces of fabric are reasonably straight.

I'm not going to reprint this fabric, but instead I'll make the warped image part of the design. Hopefully it'll make it more interesting.
