Last week’s Sewing Notions themed contest had some lovely entries – you can see the top 10 here! If you are a member of Spoonflower and vote when you are logged in, you can keep track of who you vote for. It was interesting to see one of the designs I voted for ended up in the top 10! I came 60th out of 177 entries – thank you for everyone who voted for my design! :)
This week’s challenge has a fishing lures theme, so I was able to make use of the fishing flies I have which belonged to my Grandad. I actually found this one quite hard to do and it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to draw the flies. In the end I combined pen line drawings, with coloured pencil and a bit of digital work.
Voting is still open (contests normally change over on Thursdays) – as always there are lots of lovely designs to choose from!

While I’m on Spoonflower news I thought I would share this little swatch I had printed…
The stars pattern, made from my hand drawn stars which were coloured and arranged digitally, is printed on Spoonflower’s new Faux Suede fabric. It’s lovely and soft, I think it would be great for making cushion covers!
Spoonflower has a great offer on today, I’m planning on taking advantage of it by ordering some swatches of new designs. I want to use some of my fabric in a sewing project too, I’m trying to decide what to make (cushions or zip pouches maybe) and then which design to use! (The offer ends 9am tomorrow EDT - that's 2pm for us in the UK)
