Adventures in Surface Design

Sunday April 13th, 2014, 7 months, 3 weeks and 15 hours ago

I thought I’d let you know I’ve opened a Spoonflower shop and have some of my designs available as fabric. I have a little collection called Lilium, which you can see below, as well as an assortment of some of my other patterns, and I have a few more I’ll be listing for sale in a few weeks. (See what I did there? I made the layouts look like plates from The Grammar of Ornament!) Anyway, you can visit my Spoonflower shop right here. I really love designing patterns and have other pattern-related projects simmering away that I’ll tell you about later. Patterns! Patterns!! Patterns!!!

How are you? I’m so happy about the lovely autumn weather and that daylight savings is over and I finally got that hour back I’d been missing all summer – pity about it getting dark so early though!

    These are beautiful! I’m going to have to order the moths for some cushion covers.

    I love them! I can’t wait to get some. The little playground one is my fave.

      Thanks Tracey! It’s a pity the example I’ve show here of the playground design is so small, but I wanted to show off the way it repeats – I was quite proud of it because it’s a third instead of a half drop which gives a better flow I think. :)

    Oh these are lovely. I’ve just taken on the course ‘make art that sells’ and we are learning all about surface design. Bolt fabric was last weeks assignment. So much fun, but lots to learn. You have wonderful compositions.

    I find the negative space in patterns hard to understand. There’s an art for sure!

      Wow Simone! That course looks so great, I’m glad you’re enjoying it! I find designing repeats is a process of tinkering and refinement, although perhaps it gets less tricky the more experienced you get – I’ll have to wait and see! I do love it though. :)

    Fan-tab-u-lous! Your color palette in Lilium are so subtly energizing. I picture bunting in those designs. My favorites in the Allsorts collection are the blue & white medallions and monochrome lady.
