    I would choose some of my own designs! I can’t believe I’ve done over 100 designs in the last couple of years and it would be nice to order a larger quantity of my designs for all the projects that are in sketchbook!

    Designing my own fabric is the ultimate dream of mine. Talk about total control. If we want original clothing, starting with controlling the materials.
