BucketFeet and Spoonflower have come together yet again to help artists put their best foot forward, literally.

This particular Spoonflower Challenge asked its design community to create animal inspired themes based on 4 specific habitats (desert, mountain, jungle and aquatic). This colorful design was my "jungle" submission. Let me just say, I didn't think this was a winner. (I didn't think it was leafy enough.) However, I'm so happy to have won. Thanks to EVERYONE who voted for me.

I also need to mention that there are SOOO many talented Spoonflower artists out there. I love seeing how different artists interpret all the themes that the folks at Spoonflower throw out there. It is because of Spoonflower (& the artists who submit designs) that Thursdays have become one of my favorite days of the week. It's the day I can see all those nifty iterations on a single theme. (Fridays and Saturdays become my favorite days when I'm busy.)



A Winning Toile!

This fabric got in at #10 on Spoonflower's Winter Toile Design Contest.

Back in December 2014, I noticed the toile contest but I didn't have much time on my hands to generate a pattern. Fortunately, I had a pattern started with THESE trees. I really liked THESE trees... simple stripe triangles. I worked until the wee hours and put this together. Plenty of deer, birch trees and yetis around here for inspiration. Yes, there are a few Yetis left in New England. ;)
