This post is an introduction to True Up, a blog about fabric, and Hamburger Liebe, a graphic designer who creates textiles on Spoonflower.
True Up has many features and great links. In the author’s own words, “True Up is a blog devoted to fabric. Why fabric? Because you’re probably touching some right now, unless you’re a nudist who lacks the common courtesy to keep a towel handy. Despite it being a prevalent part of everyone’s daily lives, there were no blogs devoted to fabric back when I [Kim Knight] started this site in April 2008.”
“Play With Me fabric and the cutest shirt ever made with the print on organic cotton interlock.”, posts the True Up author.
This next print, “In the Forest” by Hamburger Liebe, is shown in two colorways.
And, last but not least, Strawberry Field, shows the great use of photography to make a wonderful product even more desirable.

Here is a link to another blog that explains and depicts the process of creating a repeat pattern. It is from design sponge and this particular post is by Julia — how to make a repeat pattern.
Update on 10/24/11 – True Up is still at it. And the post on Timeless Treasures: Elephants on Parade is a good place to see more images about colorways.
