Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Eighties Embroidery PatternContest

Eighties embroidery pattern Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: October 03, 2012

This week we finally held a contest for embroidery patterns. For fun, we asked for designs to be reversed, thus allowing the embroiderer to see the print through the fabric and to stitch on the non-printed side. The theme? The roaring eighties. Our winner? Laurie Stevens, a designer from the UK. Congrats, Laurie!
