Seeds Gone Wild!

I'm working on a collection of patterns celebrating the garden. I drew inspiration from vintage seed packets and flowers from our yard.

I usually use a lightbox and pen to get my drawings ready for scanning, but I was encouraged to use my Wacom tablet, so I just scanned in my pencil drawings.

I traced my sketches in Illustrator, and applied 4 different color schemes that I've been working on.

Here's the final version of this pattern in repeat.

And here it is on a dress, because...well, why not?


Under the weather

It's a gray day here, and I'm a little under the weather. All things considered, it's a good day to share my new umbrella-themed pattern with you.

This pattern is called Bumbershoots, and was submitted in the weekly design challenge on Spoonflower. You can vote for your favorite umbrella-themed fabric here, or purchase my design on fabric or wall covering in my Spoonflower shop.

Hope you have a sunny day!
