This week’s contest theme at Spoonflower is Thermos bottles – my entry includes many different shapes, sizes and patterns with lots of floral elements. I made a whole collection to go with it as well. Starting a collection often means I can’t stop adding designs. Spoonflower’s limit of the largest sampler size is 30 swatches, and I maxed out this limit by making lots of versatile, easily combinable pieces.
Here are just a few of them, but my store contains many more. Feel free to vote for my “Nordic Winter Picnic” design here if you like it!
My design Oldschool Ornaments placed in the top 10 of Spoonflower’s ornaments contest yesterday! Here are the photos Spoonflower took of the printed paper wrap. I love the way they wrapped up mock-presents in each top 10 design. You can view all results here.
This week, our task was to illustrate either the cover or a spread for Aesop’s fable “The Tortoise And The Hare”. In this story, a hare challenges a tortoise to a race, with an ironic course of events. Here is my submission:
In continuation from yesterday’s posting about gift wrap, today I’m introducing my new patterns created for Spoonflower’s current ornament contest. I made several colourways but narrowed it down to two for now. The upper one (Oldschool Ornaments) can be voted on here, if you like it. Both designs are already for sale as fabric, gift wrap and even wallpaper, which has many applications.
I’m also happy to have made it into Spoonflower’s tea towel calendar top 10 – thank you if you voted for it. Here are Spoonflower’s photos of my printed design – clicking on them takes you to the design page where they are for sale. Until Wednesday Nov.12, Spoonflower is having a special 2-for-1 offer for fat quarters. This applies to all designs, not only to tea towels. You can read more about it here.

Today I wanted to share a few patterns from my Spoonflower shop that I designed for the holiday season – Christmas or otherwise. Like all my repeat patterns, they are not only available as fabric, but also as gift wrap. Orders at Spoonflower currently take 10-12 days until being shipped out. Add to that 2-3 weeks shipping by regular mail (express is available at additional cost) within North America, plus the increased mail traffic in the coming weeks, and time to sew projects if applicable. This means if you were considering placing any order on Spoonflower, be advised to do so at least 1 month before the date you would like to receive it.
Now to my patterns: this is my Gingerbread Candy collection featuring truffles, chocolates, wafers, pretzels, gums, hard candy, lollies, and of course gingerbread! Clicking this image will take you to the whole collection. Some of these prints are also available as greeting cards on Society6.
More holiday designs coming soon!
This week, Lilla Rogers’ MATS course called for the creation of one or more plates in Suzani style, a traditional Central Asian textile style. Since many motifs are similar to my beloved Scandinavian or general European folk style, I combined the two in this piece:
