Fabric Designing

I've been on a learning curve! I have always been fascinated by the designs printed onto fabric and so I've been having a go. I've ordered my first trial from a website called Spoonflower, that custom prints your design onto the fabric, can't wait for it to arrive in the mail!



Here's a design I did with some photos I took of a bunch of marbles, it's called "Marblicious"




I did another one, using some watercolour images which I then played with in the computer, this one is "Sea Shanty"





I'm really pleased with this one, and it was lots of fun to do.



Let me know what you think of them and if you'd buy fabric like this. These fabrics will eventually be put up for sale, but I want to design a few more before getting more test swatches printed because of the overseas postal costs, and it takes a few weeks to get here. Oh, if only it could arrive sooner!


Mmmm, what to design next....

Bernadine, I think these look fabulous. Something I've been wanting to do also, but as you say, postage can be a problem.

Hi from the "other" Bernadine on the Sunshine Coast (the name which I don't use because I hate it, sorry ... ). I love the sea shanty design and I would buy it, were it for sale. I love anything to do with the ocean anyway but the design stands out with the bright blue of the crabs against the colours of the other sealife and the sand. As far as the Marbilicious design is concerned I don't mind that design either but am just not sure what I would use it for. I would love to see the other designs you come up with. Bern

I love the Sea Shanty one, Bernadine!

I like the second one Bernadine - the hand drawn quality, colours & design. The first would be fun on something for a boy but doesn't look as individual to me.
