New Pattern – Rumbles (in Tummies!)

A new pattern inspired by after school snacks and hungry tummies! I wanted this to be a fun colorful layout that used a limited palette. I had a lot of fun reminiscing for inspiration! This is now available for sale in my Spoonflower shop 🙂 Sample swatch image shows the pattern printed on the lovely new Poly Crepe de Chine.

Blue Ribbon – Spoonflower Top 10!

Some great news – My Blue Ribbon pattern placed in the top ten for Spoonflower’s State Fair themed competition a week and a half ago! Spoonflower always takes the most lovely photos of the winning fabrics so I’m sharing some great shots they took below. I love how vibrant the colors look! The fabric is now for sale in my shop here 🙂

New Pattern – Blue Ribbon

Inspired by Spoonflower’s State Fair pattern competition this week, I created this new pattern called Blue Ribbon. Having grown up in Canada, the idea of state fairs have always fascinated me greatly as there aren’t really the same type of events up here. One of the things I’ve always been in awe of is are the amazing competitions for all manner of foods, produce, and livestock! Especially the food 🙂 Pies, jellies, barbecue, oh my! I took my inspiration from all the great ribbon winners that placed for their delicious offerings at the fair!

New Pattern – Angles

It’s fun to experiment with geometrics! “Angles” is a new pattern I have in my Spoonflower shop which comes in two colorways – Pink and Green. I just got back a swatch in the new Sports Lycra being offered and it would be perfect for athletic wear! I think some new leggings are in my near future 🙂

The Coast of British Columbia – Map

I’ve just completed a new map project, The Coast of British Columbia that I’m excited to share with you! I love the liveliness that the interplay between land and water express, and had a lot of fun creating this illustrated piece. The title is also all hand-lettered, the writing style is something I’ve been playing with recently 🙂

Below is a small preview, you can find a larger size showcased on the lovely They Draw & Travel website here!

New Pattern Collection – Pink Lemons

This week I have a new pattern collection “Pink Lemons” available in my Spoonflower shop that was inspired by hot sunny days and cool drinks!  And of course, lemonade can always use a bit of sugar, so I  created some sugar cube inspired coordinates “Sweeter” in two colorways – pink and blue, and a pink lemon slice repeat  “Zest.”
