@ihateeverything,
There is fabric that you can print directly onto (can be found at Michael's).

When I was making stuff for punk friends (I was never really punk myself), I would've loved that.

Also if you go to fabric stores they frequently have leather remnants (especially upholstery-type fabric stores) for cheap. Lots of fun stuff can be done with leather remnants.

edit: oh wait even better, I just read about this. I've never tried it though. Get sticker paper (like for printing stickers), take the back off, and stick it to any old (FLAT, tightly-woven) fabric. Then feed that through the printer. Muslin et al works best. It's a little cheaper than getting the special stuff from Michael's.

An Op(portunity) shop is a shop run by a charity selling second-hand clothes. You can buy cheap stuff and then adapt, embellish or do whatever you like with it to create your own style.

@ihateeverything,
I always design my clothes my favorite designer but I give some suggestion for my clothes designing. I always prefer to wear some different and latest fashion designer clothes. If you want to making your clothes very attractive than you have to design your clothes own.

First draw your design in book and then apply it in a old any of your clothes so it would be helpful for you to calculate how your cloth is looking good or not.
