As a cluster of great bicycle fabrics came into the final stage of this week's competition, one designer broke away and finished the week wearing the yellow jersey (or interlock knit, in our case). She is Ine Beerten (Zesti), a Belgian illustrator whose work we've had reason to admire previously in the <a href="http://blog.spoonflower.com/2011/04/project-selvage-finalist-profile-ine-beerten.html"> Project Selvage Finals</a> from last year, as well in our <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/111"> kite</a> and <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/45"> carousel</a> contests. Congratulations, Ine! Read more about <a href="http://blog.spoonflower.com/2012/03/one-bicycle-fabric-breaks-away-from-the-peloton.html">One Bicycle Fabric Breaks Away From the Peloton</a>.
This week we will be voting on collections from the Fabric8 finalists.
We love gardening, and there's nothing that delights us more than our little herb plants! We love picking a few fresh mint leaves or rosemary sprigs with our own hands and adding them straight to a pitcher of iced tea or a bowl of pasta. This week, create a fabric design that celebrates the traditional herb garden. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014.
Match point! Create a fabric design that celebrates the sport of tennis. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.
Instructions and rules for our weekly fabric design contests appear on our upcoming contests page .
