Time to make decisions, I have finally got the fabrics printed, and I am very pleased with most of the colours. Trying to get the exact tonnes you want and see on the screen is almost impossible, specially when printing digitally. So I have to do a lot of testing and sampling until I am happy with the designs. This is a very expensive and slow process, but I am hoping to have them ready in about a month. I will be making cushions and tea towels out of these geometric houses design, to go with the English Romantic collection and colour wooden hooks, I think the B&W fabric goes perfectly with the new neon colours, which are in stock in my shop.
I am making purses, pouches and bags out of the fabrics too, not being very successull so far. I am more of a designer than a seamstress, but I will get there. I am trying different sizes, models and fabrics, I wish my mother was here to help me on this new prototypes, she is the one with the knowledge, I offered her a ticket to fly to London, but she doesn't seem to be willing to come over here just yet...haha, can't wait until June when I will be going home and will bring her back with me.
