I have been a busy little bee lately, but haven't had much opportunity to share what I've been working on. Here's the scoop...
I asked for a sewing machine for my birthday nearly five years ago. It was then that the world of fabric was opened to me. I remember thinking, "I had no idea all this cute fabric existed. Wouldn't it be fun to design all these patterns?" Ever since then, I've had fabric design hanging out in the back of my mind. I realized I would need to learn how to design pattern repeats and how to use Adobe Illustrator. Recently, I've really worked to make those things happen.
My Illustrator skills are still basic, but the only way to learn is to keep trying. So when I saw a contest for fabric designs on minted.com...I decided to give it a shot!
Here are my designs.
Some are more successful than others, but I had a blast working on them.
Minted challenge winners are determined by popular vote. Any one can head over to the challenge entries and rate the designs from 1-5. If you'd like to support me, my designs are located on this page. However, I encourage you to vote for any that you really like. There are a lot of really great patterns!
