I'm designing Patterns!
Some of you know that for the past year or so I have been working hard to hone my drawing, illustration and design skills. A good portion of that time has been learning to create repeat patterns suitable for textile designs and other products that use surface pattern design. In fact, here is a link to my Spoonflower shop where currently two of my designs are available for purchase. As I develop more patterns and pattern collections I will be featuring those designs here on this blog.
I have an Etsy shop!
In addition to Spoonflower many will be accessible on printable products in my Etsy shop ~ Now & Again Paper. As my pattern and illustration portfolio grows you can support my work by commenting here, sharing any free downloads I post, favoriting my shops and designs, and following me on Instagram. (Of course it's ok if you buy something, too!)
Meet my first pattern, Kerchief!
In the picture above you can see my very first pattern - Kerchief - a part of the HomePlace Collection. Kerchief is a reimagined vintage fabric and the colorway shown here is called Teaberry. I think it fits very well into the current Boho and Folk style movements. I'll be sharing about Kercheif more in an upcoming post and more about HomePlace as it develops.
Currently you can purchase Kerchief two ways - as a printed fabric from Spoonflower or in this collection of printable gift card holders available in my Etsy shop. These gift card holders are available as a digital download and come with complete insturctions for printing and assembly. There are nine different color expressions of this Kerchief in this design. The one pictured in the very front was the original design but I'm curious which of the other versions you like. Leave a comment and let me know!
Here is a look at the digital file that you will recieve when you make an Etsy purchase:
(Since this article was published this product has been removed from my Etsy Shop.)
A few minutes with a pair of scissors; a bit of glue and you can make a gift card feel like a thoughtful present!
