I like these Cushions!

I did have a Society 6 shop as I love the idea of patterns and illustrations on textiles but I object to $1.50 profit per item and being in the UK means you have to wait ages for them to arrive… why is everything in the USA!

on a side note… I keep buying things off Amazon from companies that say they are in the UK but turn out to be in the USA!?!?!? gargh – I would just prefer to know that I have to wait several weeks rather than days for a small spool of wire!

anyway I’m waiting for printed fabric of some of my designs to arrive from Spoonflower… yep, they are in the USA so I’ve been looking up UK printers which turns out to be rather complex in the costings, set up fees etc.

I’ve decided to try home screen printing again which is awkward when living in a tiny place.

In the meantime I’ve entered a competition even though it’s for illustrators, but I did see other cushions with photos on them.. but they had text so I’m not too sure mine will do well on the site (the competition is based on sales not popularity or ‘likes’) but the preview images look really good though 😀

They have these available to buy for £25 each – plus you’ll find lots of others that are illustrations and humous so go check the site out – click on a photo or visit ohh deer!

 

wee critters…

I’ve just made some proto-type critters using Spoonflower… a company that prints your designs onto fabric.

I was trying to make a screen print Clara rag doll but I had some problems with exposing the screen and I don’t really have the room to try again so I though I’d give Spoonflower a try!

one set has a set of 4 ranging from tiny to large cushions and another set has 2 giant cushions (two colours) and once I’ve tested and tweaked the design (I’m not too happy with it at the moment) then I can either sell it from Spoonflower (the printed fabric but the buyer sews it themselves) or do it myself and sell via etsy.com!
