Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Scanned Nature ItemsContest

Scanned nature items Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: October 20, 2010

For the fabric design challenge this week we asked participants to take items they might find in nature and then to create a fabric design based on scanning the objects. There were loads of interesting fabrics among the entries, as well as some surprising takes on the challenge. The surprises included this week's winner, by Jenimp, in which she took bits of leaves, made adorable creatures out of them by gluing them to paper, and then scanned them. The result is some very cute fabric that would look just perfect on our organic cotton sateen. Congrats, Jeni!
