I have always loved designing clothing and interiors, but have tended to shy away from using prints in my designs as sometimes they can feel random or not reflective of the design intention I am trying to reach. To solve that problem, I have started designing my own prints, and using the awesome printing capabilities of Spoonflower, I have been able to design and print my own fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap.
I have become a woman possessed, as the thought of being able to design something with the direct intention of becoming a skirt, a pillow, a bathroom wallpaper or a bikini has me overcome. I am in love with the process, and can’t wait to share with you some of my projects that are already in the works. In the meantime, my prints are available on Spoonflower for sale as fabrics (cottons, knits and silks oh my!) as well as wallpaper and gift wrap, in case you find a print that strikes your fancy. See something you like but want it in another color or scale? No problem! Feel free to email me through the blog or on Spoonflower and I will be happy to accommodate the request.
Now, here’s the fun part- here are some of my favorites prints and how I intend to use them!
Starting off simply, I love these pink cheetah and grey cheetah prints, and can’t wait to turn them into a matching workout legging and top set to wear to my next Pure Barre class. Rawwwrrrrr.
I created this cherry blossom print as a fun wallpaper to dress up my powder room, and it’s been one of my most popular prints so far!
These lime green and grey marbleized triangles are one of my most modern prints, and would make the chicest gift wrap paired with a black satin bow!
This black and tan geometric stripe print is going to make the most dreamy kaftan! (and also would be fab as a modern nursery wallpaper option).
My red dot to flower ombre print is intended to be turned into another beach dress (imagine it with strategically placed white trims and tassels. Can’t picture it? Then I can’t wait to make it to show you…)
I am SO PUMPED about this African-inspired mudcloth print. It is going to become the perfect eclectic tablecloth to go with my Marin dinnerware collection. And paired with the matching Hand-drawn rectangle fabric my dinner table will truly stand out!
This oversize wisteria silhouette print is also going to become a bold top or wide leg pants (I can’t decide which!) but the white on grey version would also be cute in a nursery or small bathroom
My Moroccan 8 Point Stars in Teal and Purple are intended for small fabric projects like notebooks, pouches and makeup bags…
Chevrons have had a lot of play over the last few years but I wanted to update my Gold Pink and Grey Chevron with feminine colors and textural lines. This print would be perfect for a table runner, baby clothes pillows, and even a duvet cover.
Lastly, I created a horizontal arrows repeat in blue and grey for small fabric goods and wallpaper, and these prints would also be strong in tablescapes as well.
Which one is your favorite print? Can you think of any great uses of these prints that I didn’t think of? What type of print would you like to see me create next? All of these prints and more are available for purchase in my Spoonflower shop!
