Fabric Designs

Lately, I’ve been on a pattern-designing kick. I’m helped along by Spoonflower’s addictive weekly contests, which motivate me to add designs to my Spoonflower shop. For any who don’t know, Spoonflower is a site that creates custom fabric from your own designs that you can sell if you order a test swatch. I love it, as I can never really find the print I imagine in a fabric store, an their fabrics are of very high quality. Most recently, I participated in the art deco contest. The fabric entries were limited to a 4-colour palette. I opted for a simple geometric sunburst-inspired design in 4 shades of grey, and was lucky enough to come in at #22 of 279 entries. Prior to that, I entered my blue onomatopoeia ditsy in the Ditsy Prints contest. This year, I’d like to participate in at least one contest per month. The deadlines for February have flown by, so I’m getting my ideas together to participate in 2 contests in March.

I have added all of the above designs to my Spoonflower shop. Some designs have multiple entries to accomodate different scale sizes. If you’re thinking about designing on Spoonflower, I highly recommend it. But it’s tough to stop once you start!
