Three for the 9th and there was also a bit of colour.
For all those out there yelling "FABRIC DESIGN!!" or there abouts...
Thankyou for the compliment. I have thought about it many times but am at a bit of a loss as to where to turn next.
1- Do I give it a shot and print it myself?
....with bubblejet set and freezer paper? Do I pick up screenprinting or should I pay a professional screenprinter?
2- Do I pitch directly to fabric companies?
....who are they, where are they and would they really appreciate some SAHM asking for an appointment to pitch some hand drawn designs?
3- Surely I would need to be a bit more professional
....How should I be doing my designs (hand drawn? digital?)? Which programs should I be using? (e.g. for printing?) What size should they be?
4- Maybe I should study first....perhaps that will take too long?
....Which course? (I believe TAFE has deleted their specific textile printing course) I've already studied graphic design...ages ago, but is that enough?
Oh dear! This is about where I get to every time I think about it. I find it all a bit paralysing. Silly huh?
Much easier to stay a reclusive mum safe inside my home.
(Safe? With, soon to be, two littlies? Can I hear some of you laughing?)
Unlikely, I know...one step at a time and I might just get there.
