My friend Karen Engelbretson is great a finding cool sites on the internet. We both love fabric and have long been looking at ways to get our designs and illustrations onto fabric so that we can use it in other projects. (She actually is much more practical in her goals, having quite a knack for home decoration she is designing fabric that will make great drapes and add to the already delightful interior design taste she has manifest in her home; I frankly just like printing shit.)
She discovered a delightful fabric blog: True Up. As it claims, it's a place "to read about fabric news, get educated on fabric types and design, and ogle over gorgeous fabrics new and old on a regular basis." I know a number of my readers are interested in fabrics—often incorporating fabrics in their book arts projects. I think you'll enjoy this blog.
You all know I love product testing. Karen found a wonderful post on True Up, in which blog author Kim Kight tried out four digital fabric printing companies. Check it out.
Maybe it's time to get some of those journal sketches out of the journal and onto yardage not possible to feed through your desktop printer!
