Please read all the FAQs and fill out the google form when ordering.

Standard - a standard pattern has a plain one colour background with one to three different images repeated. The images can be repeated in a scattered, overlapped or in line pattern. The image can be repeated in different sizes if desired. 

Complex - a complex pattern has a patterned multicoloured background (eg, lightning, waves, gingham, dots, etc) with an image or images repeated in the fore ground. One to five different images, or the same image in a variety of colours can be patterned

Intricate - an intricate pattern is often a digital recreation of an artists painting or artwork or created from a high res photo of an artists work. This is a multilayered and often mutli - coloured design.



I know what I want, but I don't have an image, can you help?

Yes! If you send us a description of what you would like we can create the pattern from scratch. There will be an additional cost for this service, feel free to send us an email to discuss. 

When would I use extra background colours? 

People often order extra background colours to use in a project such as a tiered dress or when creating like products. This is an economical way to create a collection of exclusive patterns.

Do I get access to the file so that I can create other products with it? 

Yes! the file will be shared with you on google drive so you can download your own copy and use it for any projects you desire. 

How do I get my design on fabric? 

Easy! First order via this listing and then you can order your own fabric through our custom BYO listing. Just pop a message at checkout letting us know which design you're after or send us an email. 

How long does it take to get the file? 

Intricate designs can take a long time, so these have a 3-4 week turn around. 

Standard and complex designs have a 1 -3 week turn around. 

I need it quicker than that- is there an express service? 

Not at this stage, but send us an email and we can see if we can help. 

What kind of file do you use?

We use a tiff file but can provide file as a jpeg if you prefer. Pop it in the preferences in your google form. 

Can I have my favourite disney (or pixar etc) character repeated?

Sorry! By ordering on this listing you are declaring that you own and or have the rights to the artwork to be reproduced. There are big fines for using someone elses artwork and it also goes against our values of supporting artists.

Do I get to check the file to make sure I like it?

Yes and there are up to two changes included in the price. Please make sure you put as much information into the google form so that we get a really good idea of what youre after. Please also add your contact details so that we can contact you to clarify if needed.

Have an idea but not sure if it fits into standard, complex or intricate? 

Feel free to send us an email and we can help.

Our fabrics are carefully sourced and are Oeko-Tex 100 certified, the ink used is GOTS certified. This means that we are certified to be free of over 100 harmful substances, which are often used in cheaper fabrics.

At Hello Friend Fabrics, we know that depending on what you make, you might be after a different sized print, so for all your sewing needs we offer three different sizes or scales of our pre-order prints. All you have to do is decide if you’re after dinky (15cm repeat) regular (30 cm repeat) and jumbo (50cm repeat).  Se either video above or if you are needing further info on this please don’t hesitate to email us or join our fabulous Hello Friend Fabric friends! group on FB. We would love to see you there

Jump to this page and we give a description of each!

As all fabrics are printed to order, we place our orders with the printer on the 1st of each month. This means if you were to place an order during July, for example, your order would be processed on 1st August. Our pre-order fabric usually has a shipping turnaround of 8-10 weeks from the date of us placing our order. This allows us to be able to provide the exact print you're after, on the base you need, with the repeat size you choose! We simply wouldn’t be able to provide all these in retail.

Our fabrics are sold in half metre increments, which means any orders greater than 0.5 m will usually be cut in a continuous length. So if you need a metre, order 2 (2 x 50cm) if you need 3 metres, order 6. Due to the many steps in the process of printing we can not always guarantee that all fabric will be in a continuous length. Orders over 2 metres may arrive from our printer in more than one piece.

Yes, we offer a wholesale discount. Please email us at hellofriendfabrics@gmail.com for details about this.

You can choose from retail or pre order fabric.  Our retail fabric is in stock and ready to ship. This is a limited amount and what is available will vary at any given time. If you need a quick fabric fix we got you!  

Please avoid combining retail and preorder fabrics. It's best to make two separate orders.
