|Tropical printed cushion|
I designed the print to size (100cm x 150cm) as you can specify the measurements and it's not a requirement to make the design repeat if you don’t fancy it. As regards to the choice of fabric I decided to select the cotton linen however they have so many options from jersey stretch to velvet shimmer; the variety of fabric doesn’t have to be so overwhelming as you can purchase a printed fabric swatch pack which is a great way to get a feel for the fabric before buying!

I placed my order on the 17th October and I received the package on the 20th October. Like before my package arrived super fast and I was really happy with the results… It actually made me consider digitally printing more in the future! My design is just as vibrant as I hoped and the quality of the cotton linen is great. The textures I had applied in Photoshop appeared as they should have and the lines were so sharp and clear.
I stitched the cushions myself using this envelope pillow cover tutorial I found online. As a textile design student I totally recommend Bags of Love, whether you like the sound of fabric printing or prefer a customised product instead. It will definitely add a more personal touch to your own home or even somebody else's!
What do you think? Have you ever tried fabric printing before?
