Question for those who design their own fabric prints

I've drawn several fabric designs that I would like to get made into fabric, but I drew them on paper with a pencil. I have a theory on the steps I need to take to go about coloring the design and printing it on fabric. I don't know if there is a more professional or convenient way of doing this. So I was wondering how all of you do it and if I'm doing it wrong.

here is my theory:
1) draw design on paper with pencil
2) trace with a pen
3) scan it
4) open it in photoshop
5) trace over the black lines with colors, fill in colors and shade etc. with a tablet (in other words, color completely)
6) send into fabric printing company and place order

any input would be much appreciated.   :D
