Earlier this month I decided to put the herbalism on the back burner for a little while, and pretty much as soon as I got back from a retreat with some dear friends, I leaped into the new and exciting lands of fabric design. In the last ten days I’ve done 16 hour work days more often than not, drawing and painting panels and learning how to use Gimp photo editor in order to tile and repeat patterns. This culminated in my first fabrics arriving in the post the other day, and in the opening of a Society6 store and Redbubble store so that folks can order home wares with my designs on, and I’m also going to be offering fabric printed to order in the near future. I’ve got plans for quilting sets of central panels and borders, so that crafters can create their own home made throws and blankets, and even plan to create a range of dress fabrics in time – basically, I’ve totally shifted focus and started a whole new branch of enterprise, and I’m having a wonderful time! Here’s a few of the patterns I’ve created recently for those of you who might fancy having a look.
And lastly, click here for the etsy shop, where there will be two new wallhangings available tomorrow using the Moonflower design fabric!
I’m going to be working on designs featuring herbs and poisons next, and I’ll post back here with progress on those once I get a few more of them put together! I’ve got to grips with the basics, and now it is time to try something a little more elaborate and complicated… 😉
