I designed the fabric in photoshop and printed out on that inkjet fabric. I wish I had a wide format printer. These are going to be x-mas presents for friends and family.

You can get it here.

Also createforless.com has the rolls.

 Or you can make your own following these instructions. I prefer this way, much cheaper

I think you need to send some samples to a fabric producer because those are awesome!

These are fabulous.  Have you ever heard of Spoonflower?  http://www.spoonflower.com/welcome  They will print your design on yards of fabric.  It is kind of pricey at 18.00-32.00 a yard.  But considering it is your design that is pretty cheap.  That site is awesome!!!

I just love the idea of attaching them to cute bangle bracelets!  Well done!  And I love your fabric ideas!

Thanks all. I really do need to perfect the colors a bit. And Cindygert yes I have heard of spoonflower, I heard about it from someone on etsy. I did upload some stuff but have not used their services yet. Too broke right now. But definitely I plan to have my fabric printed by them in the near future, I think the colors will come out so much nicer when they print them. Their swatches are kind of pricey, but what I plan to do is put 4 swatches on their 8x8 swatch, that way I can get 4 proofs for the price of one. I do not think I can produce enough fabric on my home printer, not sure my printer can take it and the format is too small 8x11, and ink expensive. To save ink I actually designed the fabric in the shape of the purse. especially the flaps. Since I design most of my patterns in photoshop I can just put my fabric designs right on the pattern.

I wish It looks like I may have to find one soon. The local theater I work for has cut down their staff almost by half, and cut down the number of plays they produce. Most theaters have closed down all across the country. It is hard times for the arts now. When I see the wonderful fabrics others are designing and selling I get kind of intimidated. There is some really great stuff out there.

Very cute and love the fabric designs.  Maybe you could contact Free Spirit/Westminster Fabrics, they have many different designers with their own lines.  (Amy Butler, Tina Givens, etc.)  The designers are regular people with a gift.  I've had the pleasure of doing some work with Tina Givens lately, she's great.  Not sure what you have to do to submit stuff to them, but I'm sure you could find out.  Just believe in yourself.
