I did quite a few small tasks yesterday, one of the least-small being washing and ironing the heap of custom fat-quarters of fabric that came over the weekend. There are, um, a lot of designs to show. Remember this?
I think today I'll just show you the ones I'm maybe most excited about...these harlequin-vintage-y diamond patterns:
aaaand the real-life realizations of the one I blogged about last time when I was nerding out:
These really take the cake for me.
The Spoonflower folks are really doing a cool thing, and I'm grateful they dreamed up their service. My only real frustration as a user is that, like with the last prints, there were some major color-shifts. As a former photo-person who color balanced many a color print herself, I notice that stuff (and I totally understand that there are always color shifts when printing). Luckily, it seems with my images to mostly be isolated to the reds, which are the biggest chameleons. They keep wanting to go orange! Bright orange. I think with a bit of trial and error and swatching on the user's end it can be sorted out just fine, though.
Another small task from yesterday? Designing new Black Apple shipping labels with our future address on them:
My other project for the day (this was actually late in the evening) was sewing up a Tom-Waits-night (this Saturday!) capelet, which I'll hopefully get to photograph soon. So many little projects here and there...and the big project of MOVING looming!
I hope your week is going nicely, and I'll be back soon with more fabric designs and more to share!
