{ Spoonflower } Spending Sunday Doodling

I've really become a huge fan of the website Spoonflower. I think it's so neat that you can create original fabric designs just by uploading your artwork. I've ordered from them in the past and have been real pleased with the fabric quality.

I've been toying with the idea of uploading designs from my kids to use in my projects. I tried to make that happen this morning, but it was a challenge to get my son to sit still for a few minutes and draw. I think I need to approach the project a little differently. So, for now, I sat down with his markers and came up with a few designs for Valentine's day. I ordered swatches of the fabric and can't wait to get them.

Here's what I came up with. I call it Very Valentine:







I also came up with some abstract images. I call this set Doodles:






Happy Sunday,

  1. Hi Ryan,

    these look really cool - I know if I had drawn them, they'd look like boring spirals and envelopes etc, but here on your website, and drawn by someone other than me, the designs look totally professional. I'm going to check out spoonflower now - thanks!

    Cheers,
    Christine

  8. Hi, I popped over from Quilt Dad, and I love your designs! I am a 'follow the pattern' type, so designing is not something that intrigues me, but your doodles are very appealing!
