Look what just came in the mail!
They are the fabric swatch samples I ordered from Spoonflower - so exciting! I had a bunch of swatches made so I could see how the ink looks on the fabric. I know they use a digital printing method which affects color saturation, so I was not surprised by how the images turned out. However, I wish I could change the online image to more closely match what actually printed.
The colors are a little more subdued than my actual computer designs, and all the reds are especially over-saturated... so I have a little re-designing to do to make those look good through the Spoonflower process.
It was also interesting that I had the ability to scale my images on the Spoonflower site, which I did to make some of my patterns smaller - but they printed at actual size. Something to keep in mind!
These were done as "collections", and each collection was printed on it's own piece of fabric...
I think I might just quilt this sample piece up as is! Hee hee!
You can see all my designs here - and some are even available for purchase (others need editing) although I'm using this more as a portfolio than something to market.
There is nothing quite like seeing/touching/feeling your own work after making it on a computer!
