Hello everyone…a couple weeks back, Spoonflower had a free swatch day. Ever since I heard about the awesome site, I have been working on designing my own fabric. I was getting to the point where I was finished with the design, but I needed an excuse to order it. What better time than when you can get a sample of it for free? I ordered the fabric, and it came a few days ago. I am so pleased with how it turned out! I have another full yard of it on its way already. If you are thinking about ordering some of your fabric, I highly suggest the bamboo/cotton blend. It is so light and soft.
One of the things that I struggled with when designing this fabric was my personal style as a designer. Whenever I design something, I want it to be perfect. I think this is inherently a good thing, but I can get a little carried away when trying to get something just right. I guess one of my worries is that when I design something, I will somehow be defined by it, if that makes sense. Take this fabric, as an example. The design is cool, but not totally my “style”. The fabric does not fit into the category of fabrics I would choose for myself. However, I do like it still, and my hope is that even if it doesn’t totally fit me, it will fit other people to a tee.
Stay tuned for some projects with this fabric!
