Collection: Make It Snappy!
A collection of vintage and retro cameras, including those resembling the Brownie, Polaroid One Step, Canon Snappy (my first camera)...even a couple inspired by Fisher-Price toy cameras. These may not have been geeky at the time, but collecting them now is all the rage for geeks like me. To me, "Geek Chic" could be defined as "dorky and cool at the same time." And it seems kind of dorky-yet-cool to go back to using analog objects now when digital cameras and apps for processing and sharing are the mainstream.
Also available in a smaller format.
Coordinates with all designs in my Make It Snappy! collection.

Thanks for your question, Deborah! I will send you a private message, but also check the 'smaller format' link in the above description. It will take you to a version of the design that includes twice the number of cameras per 10" square.
Posted over 1 year ago.
I just ordered this fabric. I am making a quilt and the square will be 10" X10". I would like to have more than a few images within the area but I need the design to be recognizable. It looks like there will be about 16-20 images within the 10" square. I'm thinking it might look better to have 20-30 images per 10" square but I'm having trouble judging on my monitor. If you think adjusting the images smaller will look good, then can you do it? Please use your judgement, I'm
sure you are better at this than I am! Thanks

Thank you so much, Clair!
Yay Amy! Great collection, wish you all the best for Fabric8.
Thanks for your lovely comments and well-wishes, Rhonda, Kathi, Maelady, Mary, and Donna! @Rhonda: I always blink! My eyes are almost always closed in photos with a flash. I think the harder I try to keep them open, the harder it is NOT to blink. ;-) @Donna: I don't know how to choose. I'm too close them all now that I don't know if ANY will work. ;-) Coming up with some alternates and probably won't be able to choose until the last minute. Ha!
Just knew this would make it through! Good luck with the collection....I know you have a lot of coordinates. How will you choose three?!?!?
SO HAPPY for you Pennycandy! This design really stands out to me, love it!
congrats on the top 8. those cameras are so beautiful!
Congratulations! well deserved, and good luck in the final round :)
Browsing through this collection of vintage cameras is a bit of a trip down memory lane for me! The box brownie reminds me of my childhood and of all the times my Mum would say, "Now, smile but don't blink!", when she had us posed ready for a snapshot! Congratulations on getting through to the final round, Amy!
Wow! Thank you Emma, Shelley, Shannon, Dianne, Jill, Kate, and Amy! ALL the entries were SO great! I am honored, lucky, flattered, floored to be part of the finals! @Shannon: Ha ha! Your son had more confidence than I did!
Massive congratulations and very good luck in the contest, Amy!
Congratulations! Good luck to you.
Congratulations Amy! Great design. Good Luck:)
Congrats Amy! You must be so excited. Good luck in the next round!!
I showed my 11yo son the Top 8 finalist. He pointed at your camera print and said, "I knew that one would make it." Congrats on Top 8!

Â¡Gracias and thank you, Victoria V. and Victoria L.! Â¡Voy a necesitar mucha suerte en este concurso! ;-)
A Swinger! My husband and I were just discussing what to price my old Swinger for our garage sale! I didn't know it was a Geek collectable. I see another camera there that looks like one my father had. This is fun.
I really love your illustrations, very good idea!! Buena suerte!! OOps, good luck!!
Thank you, thank you, thanks, Kim, Lisa and Kelly! @Kelly: I know! I'm keeping my fingers crossed! ~I~ wouldn't want to have to choose the finalists out of this batch!
Congrats and good luck, your designs really stand out and that is a real compliment with SO many great designs in the contest. I really like your whole collection.
I just love your camera drawings, and the colour palette. Good luck!
This collection is amazing. Your colors, subjects and drawing style really come together in these designs. Great job and good luck with the contest!
Thank you so much, Shannon, Paula, Susanne, and Lucie! I just keep coming up with more ideas for coordinates, I can't stop! It's such a cool theme!
Congrats on top 100 and good luck in the contest! This is a fantastic design and you already have a whole collection!
Congrats, and good luck!
Awesome collection, good luck!
Amy, Congrats are in order. Top 100!
Thanks so much, Bee, Shannon, and Andrea! @Shannon: No, thank YOU for the feature! It's so nice to be recognized by fellow designers! @Andrea: You are so nice! I try to limit colors when I make coordinates, but it's so hard for me to pick which ones seem to work the best. If you make something with any piece of the collection, please share!
This whole collection is so good that I have mentally set it aside to consider the next time they offer half price fat quarters.
It will be very hard to pick which colors and which of the designs in it to buy, but I think I like the cameras and calculators the best.
Thank you for allowing me to showcase your Geek Chic entry on my blog. I hope you do well with the contest. You can find the blog post here: http://myheart4him.com/my-favorite-geek-chic-entries-with-cameras/
Best of luck,
Thanks so much for the lovely compliments, MaJo, Pacita, Lucie, and Hollyce! I *am* having a lot of fun with this one!
The whole collection is so cute, I'm way outa my league!
Posted over 3 years ago.
Love it! And love the whole collection. You are having too much fun! :)
LOVE THIS DESIGN! so fun and perfect for a photography lover :)
Thank you so much, Hollyce!
Thanks so much, Julie! I'm having fun going old-school not just in subject matter, but in the creative process as well. It's so funny how those slim cameras were considered "pocket size" back then!
Wow! This is such a brilliant collection and your illustrations are wonderful! I still have one of those slim instamatic cameras somewhere.
Thank you so much, Rachel and Agnes!
looks great! love the colors....you have a great talent for colors!
Wow! Thanks so much for the lovely comments, Shelley, Alex, Sharon, Amy, Eloisa, Kelly, and Susan! You all made my day!
Oh wow. I soooo like!

AH-Mazing design, Amy! Love love love it .... and I want ALL those cameras!!
Amy Peppler Adams, you are a great artist and fabric designer....plus, you have a great name. hehehehehee

So good!! Such a strong collection x
Very well done Amy!
Thank you so much, Melissa, Lisa, Donna, Samarra, Marta, Katarina, Virginie, Kelly, Helene, Angela, Melanie, Annelie, Amy, Vannina, Katherine, Lori, and Tina! I am having so much fun with this theme that I can't stop! @Samarra: Brag all you want! I drool whenever I see pictures of that little mint-green Brownie (for girls who were once Brownies)! I totally want one! There is one in this design, though I made it light blue. ;-)
Wow!!! So great! The entire collection is amazing!
Stupendous collection Amy! Love them all!
I love this vintage design! Wonderful work!
That whole collection is genius, Amy!
Amazing details and as always, perfect color choices! Good luck!!
Wow, I love it! Love your whole collection, fabulous!
The whole collection is awesome!
Fantastic design!!!! The whole collection is amazing! Good luck!!
Love this, so detailed and I love the colors too! the whole collection is wonderful! Good luck in the contest. The rubik cube design is outrageous!
Woww gorgeous illustrations !! Beautiful collection too !
This is fantastic! The whole collection is brilliant!
Love it! May I now randomly brag about an old brownie box camera I have in my collection that came in a limited-edition green especially for girl scouts? There, I said it. This pattern is totally wonderful (and just reminds me about what an old camera hoarder I seem to be. Thanks for that. No really).
For Fabric8? I knew I could count on you for something gorgeous and retro!
Oh my gosh - amazing detail in this design! Really fantastic. Perfect use: a storage bag for a camera buff!
