Arrived!

My test swatches from Spoonflower have arrived. Now they are in my shop and can be ordered as small pieces like shown here, as fat quarters and also as yardage. The quality is excellent. The colors are exactly true to my painted design, and the finest details are visible. The cotton is soft and would be a lovely quilting material.
The percentage for the designer is low (10%). They anticipate to raise it, they say.
Why only five? Well, I have to order at least one test swatch for 5$ before I can sell my fabrics. So if you are interested in a design which is in my profile but not in this choice, please let me know.

This is really cool. Your beautiful paintings look fabulous on the website. The prices are quite reasonable for custom fabric. Are you pleased with the quality of the fabric and printing? I assume this is like cafe press where you get some percentage of print-on-demand sales?

Lovely!...got any plans for some "African" designs?

Eva said...

Loads of ideas! Surely going thru all cultures.

Pomegrante fabric, both farb and blue versions? My goodness, those would be wonderful.

Eva, I think it would be fantastic if you did a blog lesson(s) of how to make material, specifically, how to do the repeats, so that others could understand how it works..it seems a great mystery to me.

Eva said...

My repeats are more or less self-taught, and a professional fabric designer would probably laugh tears. I do the repeat in the graphic programs. I scan the painted original, then make it transparent in PhotoShop and copy it a few times, arrange it and cut the repeat. I will show pictures!
