surface design

And the winner is....

Hello!

Here are the winning patterns from last weeks vote! Racing ahead in the lead was option number 9 - This rather jazzy red and peach number. SO much love for this design, I'm so pleased you voted it number 1 because I don't think I really noticed it among the contenders.

This lovely mustard colour came in 2nd place. I think these 2 patterns compliment each other beautifully and they're heading to the printers! Can't wait to list the finished scarves in the shop! I'll keep you posted and thanks again for helping me pick some designs!!

FABRIC FINALLY

Well THIS is a bit exciting... I got some fabric samples back and to celebrate I've just made all of the patterns available to purchase through my spoonflower shop! During the pattern project I set myself last year so many of you requested fabric and it's always been something high up on my ever growing 'to do' list. I was over the moon when my samples finally arrived and my brain is literally buzzing with projects and possibilities. If you're interested in getting creative and treating yourself to some new fabric for your stash or a new sewing project you have lined up, here's a link! I've also popped a handy little link to my spoonflower shop on the menu bar of my site for easy access.

I reckon I'm going to be switching around availability of certain designs - mainly to keep the selection fresh and up to date with current work but I haven't properly decided just yet. So I thought I'd make them all available for the time being. I'm still churning out new patterns and revisiting older ones from earlier in the pattern project so expect plenty of updates!

ps - ANYTHING you do make please send me photos, I would love to see what you do with these designs!!

Sketchbook time!

Hello friends! 

I thought it'd be nice to share some of my newest sketchbook doodles. I've been hard at work on little secret projects for people so haven't been able to share anything pretty with you but last week I managed to cram in a bit of sketchbook doodling and these are a handful of my favourite pages so far. I'm still drawing the faces - I can't seem to get enough of these ladies and I'm loving how they're slowly taking shape! I want to paint one up big to hang in my new bedroom but I'm waiting for that dream colour combo inspiration to hit.

The plants, oh be still my heart, those plants! Since I moved house I just want to fill the place with green plants. I only have very shallow window ledges (at the moment!) so they're gradually commandeering the dining chairs and stools, obviously... priorities and all that, ha! Anyway I'm just having to make do with some new plant drawings. I'm keeping them quite simple compared to some of the earlier designs but I'm tempted to paint some up big or possibly get some converted into risograph prints, what do you think??
