It is that time again. Contest Time! I am really excited for the upcoming contest themed "Sewing Notions". I had so much fun creating my main print: "Stitches and Notions" and all the fun coordinates to go with it. This contest required 4 different prints on one yard of fabric, so the overall view doesn't really allow you to see all the detail that I put into the design. I wanted to share a few extra views so you could see a bit more of the designs! I hope you like it as much as I do!

As we approach the beginning of Spoonflower's Fabric8 contest for this year, I thought it would be fun to share a few close up looks at my entry. The theme of the contest is Cosmic Voyage. At first I wasn't very excited about this theme, and planned on just doing an abstract star type of pattern. But after I read through the contest description a second time through, I realized that the parameters were a little wider than I first imagined, since you could include what you might FIND when you took a Cosmic Voyage! Once I changed my perspective an idea that I WAS very excited about came to me! ALIEN ARCHITECTURE! With a background in architecture I already enjoyed dreaming up out of the box buildings, so imagining a world of space buildings seemed like so much fun! So that is exactly what I did! For colors I went with a deep blue space sky, with a layer of cosmic clouds and bright light blue stellar stars. The buildings are depicted in two of my favorite teal tones with a pop! of orange. Light blue outlining and detailing add to the space feel of the print!
