A new collection

I need a day with 42 hours or so...

I`m still so behind with all the exercises from the ABSPD Class. But at least I finished a collection this night from an exercise of week 3...(can you tell me how to work from home with a toddler who is never resting...?!)






























Tomorrow I´m a few days off for hiking. The deadline for The Graduate Showcase submission is 10th October. I think I cannot manage to finish all the exercises from class until then but at least I want to have a few really cool designs until then. I want to be in the situation that I cannot decide which one to submit :-)




I produced tons of layouts for this collection, so I just submitted a few of them for the current Tigerprint Competition. Wish me luck!
That's it for today. Puh. TIRED. But satisfied to finished at least one thing on my endless to do list:-) See you in a week! My night will be short, have to get up early to pack my bags:-)

Designing Fabric...

I think it`s time to order some fabric with my Design to see the results in "real life" now!

Spoonflower is an awesome fabric company that allows you to create fabrics with your own designs! Each design can be ordered in varieties of fabrics from quilting cotton, to canvas or silk. You can even order a design as wallpaper or gift wrap. And because everything is printed to order it`s not really cheap. They are based in the US and they're shipping worldwide but I was searching for a similar company in Europe and I found stoffn.de. It´s almost the same but they only print fabric and no wrapping paper and wallpapers.

This morning I've uploaded my Cherry Design file to stoffn.de ...




... and  can`t wait to get it printed and delivered! I´ll post pictures with the results when I receive it! Think I´ll sew a cushion or a tote bag or maybe an apron ...?!

Stationary !!!

My first stationary design collection!
This is the result of last weeks assignment, and I'm so happy with how it turned out! I would love to see my designs on stationary in stores one day!
This night I am going to search the internet for good online printing companies. Any tips for me? I want to print them, and all my other designs sooner rather than later! I feel like I'm ready! Have a nice sunday evening!
