Beginning Fabric Designs
Remember earlier this year when I wrote that I wanted to design fabric? I recently made some of my designs available for public view, and I discovered that I have over 100 designs in my Spoonflower shop, with 41 prints available for sale! Yes, I’ve been very busy this year, and quite motivated too.
I had “basics” in mind when doodling these ideas, so they are mostly small, graphic prints in different colorways. You may have seen lots of variations of polka dots and stripes and argyle already in the market, but these are my beginning steps at drawing graphically and digitally, and getting repeats to work, so I hope you can share in my excitement. It’s sort of like when you take a drawing class, and you start out learning to draw wood blocks and shapes. After you master the basics, you can move on to more complicated ideas. I have a few more complex designs in the works, but they need some sister prints to accompany them.
Here are some of my favorites so far:
Stars on Circles (which make me think of bouncing beach balls)
Ditty Flowers and Dots
Leaves (comes in orange and candy)
Candy nonpareils with dots
Ditty 5-Petal Flowers
Scattered Polka Dots
The most thrilling news is that someone purchased these last three prints from my Spoonflower shop. I need to stock up on yardage of my own prints to make something in celebration. Click here if you want to see more. Thanks for stopping by!
