Spoonflower Fabric of the Week PaisleyContest

Paisley Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: March 09, 2011

Dutch illustrator Deborah van de Leijgraaf (Bora) wins her fifth Fabric Of the Week contest with a charming spin on our paisley design challenge: "Fun bathtime for little Elley". For the record, Bora has previously won our cats, kawaii, halloween mask, and windows & doors contests. Be sure to stop by her blog (which she is kind enough to publish in English) to admire some of her great photos of fabric projects. Her big win happens to coincide with her son's 4th birthday!

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
