I designed my first piece of fabric!!! :)

Hello friends, I'm sooooooo extremely excited and happy, because I received the first piece of fabric I designed myself and this is such a huge step towards an even more handmade production of items, because even the motif of the fabric was drawn by myself. :)

I ordered my fabric at stoffn, a German site where you can order fabric with your own pattern. It takes up to 20 workdays until you receive your order and I am completely satisfied. :) I ordered 1m x 68cm and including shipping I payed about 25€ for it. I can't wait to start sewing something with my beloved owls. :D

First, I made a sketch of the owls with a pencil, then I used a felt pen for the contours and then I scanned them.

 Next, I colored them in photoshop. :)

 This one is my favourite, that's why I have chosen it for ordering the fabric. <3

This is how the page looks like, you can adjust the size of your motif or you can turn it around. I can totally recommend to try it yourself. :)

So here's the result and I'm sooo happy with it!! :)

The quality is amazing! <3


Who of you has also already ordered self-designed fabric herself or himself? :) Any experiences to share? :)
