On My Desk


This week I've been researching and working on getting some woven labels done. (I made a badly constructed coin purse to see how they looked on an object). Anyway, the logo I usually use is my name (pink and yellow logo in bottom right corner). It's done in 3D and I was told it couldn't be woven unless it was flat colours, so I flattened it (logo underneath), but they said they still cant do it. So I found a digital fabric printer, but they can only print onto polyester!

So at the moment I'm getting my octopus done as a woven logo. It sort of suits what I do, cause I always have at least 8 progects on the go at once.

Does anyone know of a digital fabric printer who works with cotton and natural materials? I know they exist - I just can't seem to find one. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. xxxx

PS: Thanks to Kirsty at Kootoyoo for hosting On My Desk. You can go there to check out who else is playing. :)

I can't help with a printer but the purses are really cute!

Could you print them yourself? You can iron freezer paper on to fabric and feed it through an inkjet printer. Not sure if that is economical for what you need though.

I was going to ask the same question as Michelle. I print on old cotton sheets.

I haven't used them myself, but have heard good things about MommieMadeIt on Etsy, she prints custom labels on cotton.
