Spoonflower Kudos

06/23/2011

 
This past couple of months I've been designing fabrics to enter in the weekly Spoonflower fabric design contests. Thanks to everyone who has voted for me and 'liked' my designs. I have approved some of my strike-offs and have my designs for sale in the Design Camp Shop. Someone bought two yards of Moon Rabbit yesterday and I just about fell off my chair!

This past week two designers whose work I admire commented on my contest entry Puzzle Town. It was a wonderful feeling to receive their messages of encouragement and compliments, so I thought I'd return the good karma and share their work on my blog.

I voted for Drea Roman's designs in the recent Michael Miller/Spoonflower 'Project Selvage contest. Her seaside-inspired collection "If By Ocean" was one of the 10 finalists in the Baby Boy-themed contest.

You can buy her darling fabric designs, including Beach Block (pictured left) at her Spoonflower fabric shop Ttoz Fabric Designs

I've been a fan of Heather Dutton since her whimsical design 'Fleur de Cuillère' won the spoon-theme design contest (pictured left). She has a great sense of color and an impressive portfolio you can see on her website Hang Tight Studio. Browse through pics of her fabrics and projects on her Flickr Spoonflower page!
Heather's design 'Little Bugaboo' was a semi-finalist in the Project Selvage contest. Check out her cute wallets and tea towels for sale on Etsy!


I am happy to be in the company of such talented designers and sweet women. It has been fun to compete with an international design community. So far I have placed in the top 30% on a regular basis and I hope to make it to the top ten again one of these days. (Apple Pie Cutie placed 4th in the 18" Doll Outfit Contest!) I have a few designs I've been working on for up and coming contests, so keep your eyes peeled for more!
 
 
Come-on, sing it with me -- Spools out for-evuh! Yes indeed! I've been busy wrapping up projects and getting ready for Design Camp at the end of this month. I can hardly believe this will be our 5th summer of sewing here in puddletown. I can't wait! For fun I thought I'd post a little slide show of the projects I've worked on with the middle school students this year. Enjoy!
