Last week’s Spoonflower ‘Rockets’ themed contest had so many great entries! The winner was a retro style design – you can see it here along with all the other entries. My design came 44th out of 255 entries (with 175 votes) – thank you to everyone who voted for my design! :)
This week’s contest is a little different as Spoonflower have teamed up with Urban Threads for a Steampunk Valentine theme. The brief was to create a fabric design (previewed at the fat quarter size) with an element that can be adapted for an embroidery pattern. This is what I came up with:
I have drawn lots of keys and cogs as part of my past Steampunk / Hexley designs and I wanted to combine these ideas with some more decorative elements so added the swirls and flourishes to Steampunk style hearts. I used a colour scheme similar to some of my other cog / key fabric designs as I liked the way those colours looked printed on fabric but also added the ruby red.
