Spoonflower competition - 90s nostalgia

Do you know Spoonflower? It's a great website which allows you to design and print your own fabric. It is also a great place to shop for unique and original designed fabric as many of the designers list their work in their own little store. I have a store on Spoonflower and would love it if you took a look.

They also run a weekly design competition and I love to take part as it often make me design things I wouldn't normally draw.

The latest competition is entitled 90's nostalgia. This was the breif:

'Imagine the days of arcades, alien stickers and grunge with floral dresses, combat boots and bangs. If you often find yourself reminiscing about the 1990s, then this contest is for you! '

Here's a great free pattern to make for a loved one on their birthday. If you don't like making cross stitch just for cards why not stitch up just the rose and frame it. I think it would look great in a bedroom or if your really lucky a dressing room.  Click on the read more link to download the PDF file.

Vintage inspired floral prints

Aren't these flower prints lovely. I am really into vintage inspired floral prints and I think brown is an under rated colour to use. I think most people look great in brown as it warms their skin tone. A dress or a top made out of these prints would look great going into Autumn / Winter 2015. These are all available to buy on fabric from my Spoonflower and Woven Monkey stores. Alternatively you can buy the prints from My Society6 store or on a wide range of products via my Redbubble store.

The latest competition is entitled Hit the books. It's time to hit the books! School is back in session and it's time to bring out the composition notebooks, jotter journals, sketch books, text books and novels. Start studying now and give us your best design inspired by books was the brief. I started my design with a simple sketch of an open book and then wanted to bring it to life with some of the imagry associated with studying. I must admit I am really in love with the book worm and might just have to purchase some fabric to line my school bag if I ever go back into teaching.

Vintage bags on white prints

 

 

Who doesn't love a bag? I certainly do and have far too many to really ever need to buy another one. So I will have to transfer my love of bags on to my love of fabric and print. With that in mind let me show you my Vintage bags on white collection. These are all available to buy on fabric from my Spoonflower and Woven Monkey stores. Alternatively you can buy the prints from My Society6 store or on a wide range of products via my Redbubble store.

'The School of Art' book - a review


My eldest son and I were delighted when this book 'The School of art' by Wide eyed books was delivered for us to review. It came just in time as we had just entered the third week in the summer holidays lull. So we sat down together one after noon whilst my youngest was napping to enjoy this new book together.

The latest competition is entitled After school snacks. The boys are really into having an ice cream after the walk back from school, so that was my starting point for this design challenge. I have started using Inkscape software to make my patterns and I am really pleased with how fresh this design looks. I just love the pop of the fushia and ice blue next to each other.
