Have you heard of myfabricdesigns.com? It’s a new service for printing fabrics on demand. They contacted me a month or so ago and asked if I would like to try their service. I love designing prints, and it’s been ages since I’ve done one, so I decided to give it a go. It was a total blast.
I went to a local park (the Reeves Reed Arboretum), and took photos of the dormant vegetation and goldfish. I love plants at all times of year, but winter may be my favorite. Then I went home and manipulated the photos on my computer to come up with my final print. My favorite florals are ones the look a little creepy, so I centered my print around a skull motif.
I uploaded it and waited for what seemed like an excruciatingly long time (but was really only a little over a week), and my print arrived at my door! It is everything I hoped it would be. The colors are really vibrant. They came through my prewash really well, and the fabric ironed up nicely. I’ve already cut out my project and started sewing. I bought the linen-cotton canvas to make a menswear-style blazer.
I could also see this print looking fantastic in activewear. I may buy more in a knit to make a hoodie at some point.
The print is up for sale in their marketplace. For more details, you can click on the link in the sidebar, or click here to purchase.
