    Wow! I never noticed this place had an art section before, but since joining I'm really loving it! I am a hobbyist in graphics art, but have been doodling since I can remember. A little over a year ago, I found the coolest thing I've ever seen, my absolute dream come true, a website where you can upload your art and they will print it on fabric! I just can't stop, it's so much fun! So, I'd just like to share some of my art on fabric with you all (or coarse, most of it is Corgi themed, but I do most any breed, although I limit myself to working from my own photo's only, unless someone donates one with permission to use).

    And I was just talking to someone the other day who was looking for Aussie fabric (I think it was Aussie) and they can't find anything. I'll point her towards you!

    For the time being, I only have one just Aussie print (there is an Aussie in the multi-herding dog print), but I'm hoping to do more soon. It is a large panel, which I'm hoping to sew mine up as a pillow case eventually, but you could also buy a yard which has 4 on it and make a good sized quilt!

    I don't, SpoonFlower has a set price, it is $18 a yard for Quilting weight and the newest addition Kona cotton, and they go up from there. I know, they do cost a bit more, but it is all custom, plus they are an "Eco-friendly" company who uses eco-friendly inks and some of the fabric options are organic (I'm in LOVE with the knit! It is so soft, and thick!). As for shop owners, we get 10% of each sale, or if we order from our own set of designs it's 10% off. It isn't even really that hard to upload your own images too, they automatically put them into a repeat, and you can change the way the repeat flows as well if you want to off set each row of a design. The only real rule though, is that not all colors print as you see them on screen, which is why the make you order an amount of every fabric before you can sell it. I've been bitten by the off-color system myself, but the two biggest rules are, all shades of dark print black, and "True red" prints orange (don't know why, no one seems to know?).

    Really, you could think of it like CafePress, upload an image, and they print it on a product. Then, you have the option to sell items through them with your images to the public.

    OH! And SpoonFlower has world wide shipping!

    Those are SO AWESOME!!! So, how much do you charge for someone to give you a picture(s) to make into art for a fabric? I don't have anything I want to do immediately, but a Logan and Gavroche pillow some day would be fantastic! ;)

    That was quite honestly, the worst I've ever done, :(.
    I just keep telling myself "never again", yet somehow I seem to still slip one in every now and again when I find the time and there's a theme to good to pass up.

    Right now, if someone asks for a particular breed or theme, I'll add it to a list I have going and when I get the time and can find the right photo's in my collection, I'll do it. If someone want something really special though and will allow me to work from one of their photo's I do that every now and again, but it's still a "general" type print. My Corgi's on wheels is one, there was such a big community who wanted fabric to make quilts, so they donated a few photo's for me to work from. And my Borzoi print was also a request and when I found I didn't have any good trotting pictures at the time, she let me use one of her photos to work from.

    But I might be able to do something just for individuals, you can PM me whenever you want, at this point I work for free, but on my own time, although I do keep commitments.

    I forget to stop by this place, but thought I'd take a look at some of the threads. Your work is truly excellent. I wish you all kinds of success.
