I mentioned previously that the mermaid design (for the September calendar) was up on Redbubble (t-shirst, phone cases, etc). It is in two colourways: the simple white background and the repeating green design.
Now I have also received my test prints from Spoonflower (print on demand fabrics), and the designs are up there too in three options: Green background; white background; and no lines (rather impressionistic, would work well for backgrounds/lining).
Here they are, with my feet for scale.
And I ordered a doona/duvet cover from Redbubble. The printed layer has a beautiful silky cottony feeling – it was meant to be for the spare bedroom but I might keep it for myself. Shown here with books and sofa cushion for scale – it’s quite a large print.
I have worked the ravens from January’s calendar into a repeating design of birds, stars and feathers. Pattern-making is something I’ve wanted to do more of, and it’s a lot easier to arrange existing images than to draw new things when laid out with a bad back!
They are now up on Spoonflower as fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper – I’ve ordered a sample and will show more detail when that arrives.
They are also on Redbubble on shirts, notebooks, phone covers and other such items. I’m eyeing off a duvet cover.
I really am rather happy with these fellows.
I’ve been learning to stitch a rolled-hem for two shawls I’ve wanted to make for some time. A few people have asked for the designs, so I’ve made them public on my Spoonflower page.
The first is the cover art for Midnight and Moonshine (print it centred across two yards):
The other is “Round Eternal”, one of the pieces for the art show last month (print it centred on one yard for a square scarf):
