grandsons and spoonflower

Have you heard of Spoonflower? It’s an online store where you can upload your digital art and print it on fabric, wall paper and gift wrap. Here is a pattern¬†design I created and had printed on fabric for my dad’s curtains in his camper. He wanted polka dots and it had to match his cushion fabric.


Anyway, Spoonflower is where I returned to last week to start a new project for my grandson, who is three. He just started drawing people. Below is a picture he drew of himself and his mom and dad.


I wanted to take his person and create fabric just like I did for my dad’s curtains. So, I took one of his drawings and uploaded it to Spoonflower and had it printed on a fat quarter of cotton. Here is his person printed on the fat quarter.


Then I made it into a stuffed pillow / person for him. It’s super soft. It’s funny, he thought when it was done, it looked like a tooth. What do you think?


What have you been up to this week?



Just got back from vacation and have been busy regrouping. I want to share a pattern I’m working on this week. The original art is below and was created by Rose, my co-worker John’s daughter.

Here is the pattern I created from the flower. I love the muted colors. I want to use the other elements as texture. Need to research and find out how.
