Spoonflower Fabric of the Week AviationContest

Aviation Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: August 08, 2012

This week we decided to explore the art of aviation by asking designers to have a go at creating aircraft-themed fabrics. We ended up with fabrics that included hot air balloons, airplanes and fanciful flying ships of all sorts, but the winner is "Flying Ace" by San Diego artist and textile designer Cheyanne Sammons.
