Again some color and texture. Does it look interesting? And, what good is it?

I got to thank Dawn Frasier (Sophista-Tiki) for talking about the SpoonFlower web site. My wife saw some of my designs and said: “Fabric pattern!!!” SpoonFlower will take a digital (or a painting digitalized ) image and make cloth out of it. This tiled version of the pattern might make a shirt.

A little fancier stamp design.

It is lots of fun to combine stamps, colors, and textures and see what you can come up with. Using the same stamps can produce all kinds of different patterns.

This is what it might look like as a fabric pattern.

As you can see by my stuff, you do not have to be a great artist to produce some interesting patterns. Are they authentic island cloth patterns? I do not pretend that they are, but they kinda get that feeling and are also somewhat unique. Another stamp design …...

Three stamp brushes and some color and texture and I came up with this. Playing like this can get habit forming.

This is what one possible way the patterned could be tiled would look like.

Off to SpoonFlower and a couple of weeks later and fabric is laying on our dinning room table. You may notice the color is a bit different. The photo is off somewhat because of those florescent energy saving lamps that we have to get used to because they are so good for the environment even though the mercury in them is unbelievably nasty. My camera did not want to white balance very well under them. Also the color faded a bit after the fabric was washed. The color just wasn't quite right, but we still liked it.

This is my friend Happy Tiki wearing the vest my wife made using the fabric. We live in the cold Midwest and he prefers vests over Hawaiian shirts. You can tell by his face he liked it a lot.

I'm digging the fabric prints. The Spoonflower fabric fades from washing that quickly?
That is a bummer!

Thanks much Luna ... I keep trying ....

Thank you Sandra ... I don't know what to say about the fading. I have only tested this one pattern so far. Have had lots of experience in the past with t-shirts and my wife is always careful and wash in cold water the first time. It was a bit of a bummer ....
