Taking a fun run at fabric design.

I've been a fan of Spoonflower, a great design-your-own-fabric site, for a long time. And I've wanted to give it a try. This past week, the stars aligned and homework/job/hockey opened just enough of a window for me to put together my first ever entry into their weekly contest.

This week's contest theme is for a fabric based on cameos. The learning curve on fabric design turns out to be quite steep -- it's hard to get things big enough to see but small enough that the design wouldn't look out of place on a pillow or quilt. Here's a closeup of one of the illustrations I used.

You can vote for your favourite entry right here. Jelly beans to whoever helps puts me over the top :)
