This is my entry for the spoonflower tea towel competition which I am pleased to say received 27 votes. Updates in the calendar to make it more readable have now been done. I took the idea from a sketch last spring with the mallard resting in the allotments.
New challenges and I have placed on the virtual counter a bolt of fabric which can be bought from my little shop named…. By the Meadow
The design suits a small project like this fabric cover for a notebook. Opening my envelope from Spoonflower with the swatches in was exiting it was a little parcel of discovery.
Just one more design twirl on the Scottish dancing theme and then a rest!
Thought I would try a different method for a handrawn approach to pattern design, One thing leading to another I am thinking of digital printing with Spoonflower. Making something with this novelty fabric would be fun to do and a bit of a treat.
This little motif has worked well within patterns the limited colour range helps to set the pattern in the 1950’s? If I could I would like to see this pattern on curtains perhaps I can do some photoshop trickery will have to get my magic spell book out for that.
Grosgrain stripe effects have been added over the dark hat because I like the contrast and the fruity colours.
Last of all I have tried to create a modern and fun pattern ..this was a joy to colour I thought of happy things while listening to the radio.. I think that worked!
The clock to me has a fun shape and I think the 2way directional fits best in showing this. This ballerina changed her dress for the evenings dancing wearing blue silk from China.
My little project has been to create a ditsy all over pattern suitable for weddings. I would lke to see how effective the pattern looks on tissue paper and hope to update this page to complete the project anon.
Warm colours that sit well with my scotscroft pattern.
thank you for looking
