Prototype Scarf


The photo below is a design I have been working on to use for printing. I did print some fabric with it but forgot to heat set the printing ink in my rush to get the prototype scarf done- so a lot of the motif washed off- silly! One thing which I haven't notated on my blog ( because I can't work out how to do it), but I do hope everyone realises that my designs are copyright.

I want to make a few scarves before Quilt Indulgence to gauge reaction and see if they are a saleable thing or not- there really is quite a lot of work involved, but on the other hand they are one off and individually stitched-so I don't really know what i should charge for them. I also intend to make corner dangles which will be an imprint of a signature of sorts- sort of brand marking. The fabric is printed silk.

Promised Celeste ( eldest daughter) I would show her how to make real cream caramels so I had better go and fulfil my promise.Posted by Picasa

Hi Dijanne
Right if it was me that won the quilt please do send it to Laura Caitlan. I would love to have it though!! :)
Second here is a web page telling you how to do copyright thingy

Dijanne, I have no idea what you should charge for these - apart from saying not under at LEAST $100!! All the work involved, I'd probably say $150 would begin to be a fair price.

Hi Dijanne,

About copyright - can you add text to a photo using photoshop or similar? That way you could type your copyright message on the image. Just a thought.
