New this week in the Silhouette store... classic toys! They're print and cut files with a bunch of my watercolor illustrations, similar to the Hey Diddle Diddle characters (also available in the store!)

Hey diddle diddle

I just spent the last couple weeks working on a fabric design for Spoonflower's Project Selvage. It was grueling... I had no idea what I wanted to do, couldn't settle on any one idea and kept second-guessing myself... ugh.

Anyway it's done — submitted and entered into the contest yesterday. While it would be super awesome to win, I don't think it will. There's too much great competition! Still, I'm happy with the way it turned out.

As a bonus, I've decided to offer the illustrations for sale in the Silhouette online store. They use the print & cut feature, and would be really cute framed for a baby's room.

One-handed design

Really! I was holding the baby the whole three hours it took me to throw this together last night, so I only had one hand free!

It ended up coming in 4th place... not too shabby.

Top Ten

This week's design was #5 in Spoonflower's Fabric of the Week contest. It's a limited palette repeat pattern border print. My husband didn't like it, though he did vote for it... I admit, it's not my favorite, either.

"Award winning designer"

Can I legitimately add that to my resume if the only award I've ever won for my design (not fine art) work is a Spoonflower Fabric of the Week contest?? I'll take it!
