Spoonflower Fabric of the Week KawaiiContest

Kawaii Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: September 29, 2010

We have a new Spoonflower celebrity designer on the rise: Deborah van de Leijgraaf of The Netherlands has won her second contest in a row, and her third this year, with "Tea Time!" The competition this week was all about cuteness -- kawaii in Japanese -- and the field of entries was terrific as well as being unusually large (160 fabrics). When I emailed Deborah last night to let her know that she'd won, she emailed back to say that she was dancing around the house with joy, no mean feat given that she is 38 weeks pregnant. Wow! Congratulations, Deborah.
