Fabric pattern making!




So this week has been busy workwise, the beginning anyway, so I don't have much to show drawing/illustrating wise! But, what I have been working on, or wanting, for a while is to print my own  designs on fabric. I finally took the plunge and ordered three designs this weekend from Spoonflower.com . I've ordered a yard of each design to start off with, so hopefully they'll turn out well :)

I decided to get two colourful bird patterns, one with a very pale pink background and the other on a white background. And for the third I decided to test out printing one of my cityscapes, and chose this one of a street in Paris. This is obviously not a pattern, but I thought I could cut image into tea towels, or cut square into a cushion cover, or make one of those small rectangle cushions. I haven't decided yet!! I can't wait for the fabric to arrive to start making things with them, eee!

I'm really happy with how this commission has turned out. I like the different font used and it seems more laid back somehow with how the text is placed and stuff! I thought I'd show my progress of this commission from beginning to end with it framed. I hope you like it!

p.s. The other day my etsy shop (click here!) received over a hundred visitors in a day, and I also sold three items within 24 hours! Maybe that doesn't seem like a lot to some, but it is to me!

If you're interested in a commission, feel free to message me for more information :)

Pinterest


I haven't blogged in the past week mainly because I've been busy with work and haven't got much to show for it yet! If you follow me on instagram (click here!) you will have seen I've been working on a commission, but I want to wait until that's finished so I can make a blog post about the progress from beginning to end when it's all framed and ready to go!

But this past week I've been going Pinterest crazy! I joined just over a week ago... I think. I'm already addicted, help! If you're on there you can follow me, click here. Let me know your username so I can follow you too :) Do you have any Pinteresting (oh no...) tips for me?!
