Spoonflower Fabric of the Week ArrowsContest

Arrows Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: October 31, 2012

We challenged designers this week to create fabric designs (also good for wallpaper) using arrows. In honor of the feature in Adobe® Illustrator® CS6 for creating repeat patterns, the prize for this week's special contest was a one-year membership to <a href="" target="new">Adobe Creative Cloud™</a>. The winner of our arrow-themed contest is designer Darci Falin of Kansas. Way to go, Darci!
