Repeatable pattern for textiles and fabric
One of the things that I have always wanted to do was design artwork for fabric, textiles, tableware, etc. I decided to finally take the plunge and give it a try. Spoonflower is a website that lets you upload your own designs and print them onto fabric. You can also open up a shop and let other people purchase fabric with your designs on it. The only downside to this is that you must purchase a test swatch for every design you want to sell. The test swatches cost $5 each. Being the penny pincher that I am, I haven't actually opened up a shop.
However, I did enter one of their competitions. The theme was pen and ink with watercolor. It was right up my alley, and I figured that there is no better way to test the waters than by diving right in. So yes, this is my entry.
Personally, I love it. The bright orange of the California Poppies is one of my favorite colors. I will probably order a yard or two of this design and use it for a throw pillow or a decorative box. If you had a couple yards of this fabric, what would you make?
