What's That Hiding in the Other Room?
You know how I am completely obsessed with fabric? Yeah. Well, imagine the amount of obsession that comes with getting fabric that you made! MWAHHHHHHHHH! It is a whole new level of amazingness. I get it out and touch it all the time, and rub my face on it, and smell it. This was the first thing I have printed using Spoonflower, and I have to say that I am completely hooked, and already working on a few more designs! There were a few issues with my repeat, but I think I have them under control now, and it's that not surprising considering it was my first try making one. So, without further ado, forty million pictures of my birdie fabric!Lesson I learned today: It's pretty much impossible for me to take an adequate picture of myself holding fabric.SO, now I have a question for you fabric folk, "market research"* if you will. I am thinking about doing a few more designs and then selling them on my etsy store, do you think there would be more interest in just the raw fabric than in say, bags and stuff that I would make out of it. Or, in simpler terms, should I try and sell things from the fabric, or just the fabric itself? Or, do you think there would be interest in either? I am a bad decider, let me know.*Ok, so this week I was supposed to participate in a market research groupy-thingie, and so I went there, and filled out another form (after an email and phone interview), and sat in the mirror room with 12 or so other women, and then they started calling people's names to go into the other room, and they called EVERYONE BUT ME! I was rejected! My opinions were REJECTED, but they still paid me $60. $60 dollars to not have to listen to me talk. Kind of impressive, no?
