Autumn Leaves ideas in Spoonflower

I've been bubbling away with some design ideas for ages in Illustrator, every once in a while dipping my toes into Spoonflower and then I let the ideas sit and ferment. I have been inspired by Lara's fabric journey, so I am going to take a leaf out of her book and see what happens if try and translate some of my ideas into fabric.

The lovely Mrs Beckinsale facebooked that Spoonflower have free shipping on Monday so I am excited about ordering some free swatches to see what the fuss is all about. Given that Nicholas wants to be held today, computer work is about the only thing I can do!

My hottie design, is the one that I have formost in my mind at the moment, so with that in mind, here are some ideas that I have .. what do you think?



I want to order a test swatch in the Cotton Voile for this one, as I think it would make a lovely baby wrap. No doubt there will be some refining to do when I see it "in the flesh".



And of course if you are quilting, the idea would be to integrate a denser design in with the more open design ...



Of course, no fabric collection is complete without some dots in the same colour way ...

Some refining still needs to be done, but I am looking forward to making things with my new fabric (shhh, did someone say Fabric Diet?)

The 'stitched' circle in your first autumn leaves print really makes it. The second one, personally I'd stagger the leaves a bit more. And everyone needs dots!

I love love love these. Can you just imagine them in pink orange and red?

you need a print with bigger dots, and then another one with dots all sizes, with more background space too.
