congrats on top ten sammy.. i really love this one and i totally think it is way better than mine..i so had you and decobot down as 1 and 2 for this contest!! i agree with francine - a 50's dress would be ideal!!
Posted almost 6 years ago.
Congrats for top 10! Totally deserved! :)
Yay for top five! I can't get the idea of making a tie with this fabric out of my head (thankyou, ttoz), such a great idea for a great design!
Totally great, understated fabric. congrats on placing!
Congrats on top 10! Can't wait to see some projects made with this fabric!
I had no doubt this would make the top 10 - it's so appealing! I totally see a 50's style dress with black piping. Congratulations!
Thanks so much, everyone! I've been dreaming about making myself some sort of summer top or dress out of this one. Got to put that ol' swatch order in first.
Congratulations, you know I love this design.
congrats, i think this is so super clever!!
Congrats on 4th place! It is sure to be a top seller.
So darling and clever! Love this!
This is soooooo good.
Okay, Sammyk, I tried to upload a pic of the tie, but I'm not sure that the link is working so I'll try again later -- but I did post it in the Spoonflower flickr pool and I'll email you the files so maybe you'll have better luck?!
Yes, yes, a tie! Please upload your pic, ttoz! I actually based this camo pattern's orange-red tone exactly on my little ladybug from the Bugtastic design since it printed up so nice and juicy. Can't wait to see your tie!
Ooh--I'd SO do a tie! Have you seen my "Bugtastic" tie yet?! I need to load a picture for you...!
Lining a coat would be really fun. A tie would be great too.
Thanks, ttoz, waevingmajor, sparegus, lela2210, kgalal, acbeilke and victorialasher!! It means a great deal that you all enjoy this so much! I wasn't sure which way to go with this challenge and opted for a more quiet approach and I'm thrilled that you like it. Glad you can see applications for it, too; a blouse would be AWESOME! I'm now wondering about lining one of my husband's coats in it; he likes this pattern a lot so it just might happen! :)
Hands down, my absolute favorite in the camo contest!
So charming! this would make an adorable blouse
Great Sammy... while everybody tries to think out of the box, you think out of the pattern :) really clever.
so very, very clever! And cute :)
I love it! it's so unexpected!
You're right, SammyK! That is MUCH better! :) As for the taste of lady bugs - they are surprisingly sour. Ick.
wow, this is excellent. simple, spare, clean, but full of whimsy. and using it on the inside of a jacket or purse or whatever would be fabulous: adding to the unexpected surprise feel of the image.
Awesome camo -- I love these little ladies...er, I mean a good polka-dot fabric! Though now I'll be double checking my drinks and I don't think I'll look at tic-tacs the same again...
Woohoo, thanks, guys! Whoa, Cean, Charley Harper...what an honor to be compared to him! kdl, uzumakijo, annosch, vo, pattysloniger, inscribed_here: so glad you all love the little ladies! Yes, decobot, victoria, babysisterrae: hahaha, you're right; it's very 'buzzy' on the eyes if you look too long; those ladies are truckin' it across the fabric. And lulakiti, I'd like to imagine that ladybugs taste like strawberry, but I keep reverting back to a crunchy tic-tac-like sensation but without the breath freshening element. I'm just going to think of you as part-magical lady bug; doesn't that sound a bit better!? :)
This is just a perfect camo. It is reminding me of Charley Harper (my favorite designer), though it is totally original and fresh. And as lady bugs are a beneficial insect and an ally in our garden's organic fight against invading hoards of plant eating vermin, I am so happy to see them celebrated in a more sophisticated, not overly cute way. Bravo!
I love ladybugs, and your design! Really great.
hey sammy - totally fabulous as always - love ladybirds, love polka dots, love ladybird dotty camouflage. supercool! i think this is probably the most appropiate camo design i've seen yet! genius move!
I love, love, love ladybugs. Ok, I do not see any! But in a skirt made of this stuff I would feel like one. Very pretty and suitable for older girls (like me)!
Fabulously done. I love this fabric.
Really neat how easy it is for the eye to form the whole oval body after spotting the bug parts! Nicely done design, it is fun to space out at :).
Oh - and can I also just tell you, since I just admitted to my great fish phobia on Ttoz's thread, that I HATE lady bugs?! Our house used to get infested with them every summer. Once you have TASTED a lady bug floating in your drink, the romance for them kind of dies... but I still love this design! :) Which speaks volumes of how swell it is that it does not traumatize me. Ha ha.
It would also be a great "inside fabric" - I mean, like the inside of a back pack or baby carrier or stroller or something... you know what I mean? Perhaps not the main component because it is too strong - but a complimentary and still more eye catching fabric to make an item that much more exciting.
Of course it's moving, it's alive!! Brilliant design, great take on the theme, I love it. I think it would be a wonderful t-shirt.
HA! Yes, it is a wee bit painful on the eyes if you stare too much. But it would also make a fabulous skirt!
really tricky, can't look at it too long or the dots start moving!
Wonderful idea, nicely executed.
Fabulous design solution, very clever!
Oh my - totally fabulous. This is the kind o' camo I was envisioning should I have actually done anything for this contest. I LOVE IT! Bravo!!!
