In the Queue Wednesday



I'm running out of brand new queue projects, so today I'm going to give you an update on a slightly-used queue project. ;)

As you may remember, I'd like to use Spoonflower to print fabric decorated with rock climbing gear, to use to make a Hawaiian shirt for my husband. I was kind of nervous about tackling the design - I am definitely not an artist.

Then, last Friday (Feb. 13th), Erin of A Dress A Day posted about a designer on Etsy, MissBlackPepper (aka Beth), who will create custom designs suitable for Spoonflower use! I immeditely began a conversation with her - and the image above is the first one she sent me, just to give me an idea of what she could do. Pretty cool, huh?

She thinks she can finish this for me this week! Then I ship the *.tif file off to Spoonflower and next thing you know the fabric will be delivered to my door... :)

I'm not sure when I'll get to it (he already has several Hawaiian shirt fabrics in the queue, but something tells me that this will bump up to the top!), but don't worry - you'll be seeing the final version in a shirt! It's in my queue... :)

While I'm generally more of a balanced person, it this design I definately like the organic design better. Don't know why - I just think as an all over pattern it would be cool. Also, I would attempt to rotate the organic design so it isn't a totally one way design that I would be sure to cut out upside down! g
