    Very nice designs Khadijao, your designs deserve to be stamped on cotton. Do you know the printer for the transfer to the cotton paper?? You can make a test of scanning drawing and print it in a shirt pocket.congratulations, greetings

    Lovely! You know, it’s funny, but even before I read what you said about a fabric design I thought, wow this would look great on a dress!(;



    July 13, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Thank you so much everyone for writing such sweet words here..I thought my this random post will not be attracting my readers as much as any of my tutorial posts..well thanks sweeties..

    Yes girl I have done PGD in textile designing..
    thanks dear..yes I am in a habit of making these designs from many years but you may not believe that I was a very bad artist in my notebooks seems dirty with tiny flowers & doodles,,haha..

    Thanks for appreciating but I dont know the method you are telling about.I know screen printing but not the digital way!

    Thanks I would love to see your paint inspired by my work :) show me then..
    Thanks Vicki, I am now thinking about making one design on any of my shirt with fabric markers :)

    Beautiful! I was not surprised when I clicked on the design at Funky Junk and it brought me to you. You always have great projects! When I graduated from college (and before I got married) I was a textile designer for a carpet company. Your designs would look great on carpet as well as lots of other things!!! Good job.

    Annamaria I would like to draw these on walls..I will be trying on my craft room wall any day :) thanks for the idea..

    That is so pretty and there is so much you can do with it. I really want to start sketching and doodling myself. I don’t think I could produce anything as pretty as this though!

  75. Susan

    July 19, 2012 at 10:46 am

    You should digitize your art work into embroidery designs. They are beautiful!

  76. Meeha Meeha

    July 19, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Fabric pattern, this exactly what I thought! Do you work with a textile producer already? Because this would definitely be a sales hit!


    July 19, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Thanks my I will like working more on my designs..I don’t know much about digitizing designs but I will try to transfer this at any fabric..embroidery will also be a good idea..thanks my friends..

    July 19, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    I can definitely see the similarity to traditional henna designs! I recently free-style drew all over a cupboard with a henna-inspired design like this. Only mine was all black. Yours is much more colorful!

    I love your doodle prints. They are so bright and they caught me eye straight away. I would purchase something like this as a colouring page. I am a mum to 4 kids and a primary/elementary school teacher and love these kinds of designs to use in class and at home. Do you sell them?
