Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Large Scale Botanical (palette-restricted)Contest

Large scale botanical (palette-restricted) Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: January 12, 2011

The winner of our latest contest is Dennis Bennett, or DennistheBadger, the same artist who won the baby carrier design contest we sponsored last year with Nap Inc. It turns out that since his last win, DennistheBadger, who lives in Germany, has become DennistheDoctor, having finished medical school. It must be nice to know that if the medical career falls through, he's got a future in fabric design. Congratulations, Dennis! These palette-restricted contests always seem to produce a terrific bunch of entries. Thanks to all who participated. Read more about Palette-Restricted Botanical Print.

Upcoming contests

Floral coloring book wallpaper

At Spoonflower, we like to keep our childlike creativity and curiosity alive. That's why we're oh so excited about this week's contest: floral coloring book wallpaper. Create a black and white design that is ready for crayons, pencils, and markers to go wild. Designs are intended for wallpaper, but previews will be sized as a quarter yard of fabric (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is April 22nd, 2014.

Moms recipe tea towels

No matter where you live in the world, nothing spells comfort like a home cooked meal from your mom or grandmother. Celebrate the important culinary women in your life this Mother's Day by designing a lovely recipe just like mom used to make. Recipes should fit a fat quarter-yard of our Linen-Cotton Canvas fabric. Entries will be previewed at the scale of a fat quarter (27" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, April 29th, 2014.

Terrariums

Terrariums are the perfect way to bring the outdoors in, and inject a little plant life into your home. No wonder people are crazy about them. This week, create a design that celebrates terrariums, previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, May 6th, 2014.

Crayon-drawn monsters

It's time to dust off the crayons, we're going 'old school' (kindergarten, that is!) for this week's contest. Create a monster design by hand, using only crayons (the kind you'd doodle with as a kid). Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, May 13th, 2014.

Fabric8: cosmic voyage

The 2014 Fabric8 Contest theme is Cosmic Voyage. Fabric8 is an annual contest to discover eight bold, modern fabric collections from new and emerging designers. This year, the winner of the contest will receive a chance to release a collection through Robert Kaufman. See the contest home page for details and rules.
