All the designs I do somehow come out as fabric designs. They may start as photos, drawings, embroidery, dye-painted fabrics, batiks or virtual batiks, or even typography, but they all lead to fabrics. Often they are Art Nouveau or William Morris inspired

Hi, sorry for the delay in answering. The stripe-effect caused by the layout of light and dark does run vertically, along the length of the fabric. But the deer are sideways on the fabric, so that you can cut a scarf the width of the fabric, and each deer will be either upside-down or right-side-up as it hangs from your neck. I have made a scarf from a different color of this design, but I haven't sewn this one to match my rain-jacket yet. Soon. Remember to plan for the back of the scarf, where the fabric will be white, not printed. I either back a scarf with fleece, or fold the fabric in half, so each side is patterned. ___The way you see the deer in the swatch view, or fat quarter view is what you get. I used the organic cotton knit for scarves. It's soft, and 56 inches wide. I love my other one which matches my fleece vest.

Does it print with the stipes running the width of the fabric, as you say in the description? The preview photo shows it printing stripes the length of the yard. Thanks for the clarification. I want to make a scarf, too. Did you? Did it work well?

Thanks, su_g, for the compliment on colors and textures. I am very excited by this new technique for putting hand-dye type colors and pattern into designs! __ Yes that is a little of the calendar detail showing. There is a translucent area in the tree branches, with the calendar numbers showing on it.

Beautiful colors and textures - as seen in the swatch view! Might that be some calendar details in the middle? I cannot see properly!! I think a detail or two would be a great help!

This coordinate to my embroidered stripe design is now for sale. The slightly textured background prints like the color shows here, as a very rich purple. The pattern is a textured soft copper-brown, looking like couching.

This smaller-scale pattern, which looks very much like actual cross-stitch embroidery, is now for sale. The colors are very crisp and bright, the pattern shows well.
