My Entry for the Spoonflower "Pastel Halloween" Design Challenge! Get Those Halloween Projects Started Now!
Here is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Pastel Halloween" Design Challenge, called "Happy Halloween Damask"! It might seem a little funny to be thinking about Halloween in the middle of Summer, but I'm sure all the amazing sewists and makers out there probably appreciate this so you're not rushed getting your spooky projects ordered and finished in time for Oct 31!
TIP: My HAPPY HALLOWEEN Collection in my Spoonflower Shop has 5 coordinating spooooky designs (but not toooo spooooky) on all kinds of fabrics, wallpaper and home decor! Each one comes in both a Pastel and Traditional colourway (see both below) AND each comes in 3 sizes too! Lots and lots of options!
Check out my Spoonflower Shop and my Happy Halloween Collection AND the Voting Page to check out all the entries!

So excited to see this! Inspiring DIYer Charlotte Smith of the At Charlotte's House Blog (on Instagram: @atcharlotteshouse) updated her fireplace with my Eucalyptus wallpaper (Before and After pics below)! Be sure to check out her Blog Post (July 21 2021) to see a step-by-step of this project! See below for her thoughts (as written in her Instagram post) and a special discount code too! Oh, you can also link directly to this design in my Spoonflower Shop!
Charlotte says: "My favorite part of design is that moment when you decide to just try it! To take a chance and see where you end up! #ad @Spoonflower challenged me to makeover a small space using some of their wallpaper and... mission accomplished. I LOVE what a huge impact adding wallpaper to our fireplace surround made to the rest of the space. Our family room is a little dark and a little small but we spend a LOT of time in here enjoying movies together or reading stories in front of the fire. Bringing in the perfect wallpaper to coordinate with the rug and the graphic chairs somehow helps to balance the space and adds that little bit of fun that I love so much!! I used Spoonflower's removable peel and stick wallpaper so I can easily change things up in a year or two if I want a different vibe! Link in bio for my wallpaper.

This one was designed to be "educational" for this week's Spoonflower "Seek and Find Playmats" Design Challenge! I designed this so that in a 3-foot square, there are only 2 of each type/colour of flower. Kids will have fun trying to find the matching pairs and spotting the "hidden" coloured shapes in some of them! GO AHEAD...Can you find all 32 MATCHING PAIRS (and the pink triangle, purple diamond, green square…)!

AND this design is now available in my Spoonflower Shop in 3 sizes. The JUMBO Scale was designed for the Playmats challenge but would also be wonderful on bedding. The LARGE Scale has all the pairs in a 2-foot square. And the SMALL Scale has all the pairs in a 1-foot square, perfect to make into wonderful dresses or quilting I think!
This Week's Spoonflower Design Challenge: "Stone Fruit" (and a Look Back at One of My First Designs)!
It’s CHERRY season! I first created my "Ripe and Juicy Cherries" design near the beginning of my surface pattern design journey when I was still new to that confusing program called Adobe Illustrator. I sold it on greeting cards and art prints at local craft fairs and a now-closed Etsy shop where it sold very well! One of the reasons I kept going with my designing was the popularity of this design...Then I moved on...UNTIL I saw that this week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Stone Fruit" and I was reminded of this once-favourite design! So after revising that early design (huh, why did I create it that way??!), and then adapting it for a repeat pattern, I entered it in this week's Spoonflower challenge. I must say, looking at it again after all this time, I still love it!
