spoonflower

A few months ago I joined spoonflower, a site where you can design and buy fabrics. Since then (and before then!) I’ve been very interested in fabric design. I still haven’t bought any, but the weekly contest is often a good incentive to come up with a design. I recently added a side-bar on the right side of this blog which links directly to my shop on spoonflower. So far none of my designs are for sale because I haven’t proofed them yet. In order to sell fabric the designer needs to first order a swatch, check the colours, upload any changes.
The design process is lots of fun! I’m also learning more about how to use inkscape and gimp, so I might post another tutorial soon.
The contest this week is arrows and this is my entry. This is the repeating element, you can see how it looks repeated here.

I'm a fabric designer fascinated with the intricacies of seamless repeats. I enjoy creating vector designs as well as working with linoprint and watercolour. I've lived in 5 countries and love to use special places and memories in my designs.
