How cool is this: Fabric that you design, a company prints for you and you use!
This is clearly a way forward for many people, who want to cover all aspects of creativity. I am so tempted, but do not use Illustrator or Photoshop, so not sure I would be able to get design something that I liked.
The first site I ever heard of was Spoonflower.
Fabric on Demand is another site I have found.
I have a feeling I read about another company doing it, but can't seem to locate them!If you look at Etsy, there's lots of people selling their lovely fabric designs.
This is yet another way to individualise your projects!
I'm printing here Kim from Spoonflower's comment, as it's so useful. Thank you Kim!
Hi, Claire! Kim from Spoonflower here. I just wanted to say that you don't have to use Illustrator or Photoshop to be able to design fabric. Julia Rothman did an awesome tutorial on design*sponge awhile back about how to create seamless repeats the old-fashioned way, with paper, scissors and drawing materials. It can be found here: http://www.designspongeonline.com/2008/05/welcome-julia-and-how-to-make-a-repeat-pattern.html Hope you and your readers find it helpful. Happy designing!
