Custom printed fabrics

I posted a while ago about how Spoonflower was an amazing service and how I wanted to get some of my own designs printed on fabric, but I never had the time or opportunity to do it, until now!

I've been working on the YCN Marks & Spencers Picnic Project, and decided to tackle it by designing a pattern and identity for the entire range. I wanted to do a fun family picnic with a healthy theme, to promote healthy eating. I will post about the entire project later when everything is finished but for now just wanted to share the designs I have just sent off to get printed on fabric!

I designed an apple pattern, with bright summery colours, fun patterns and textures and a healthy fruit theme, shown below is the tile and repeat.

I also designed a textured stripe pattern using the same colours to compliment the apple print, shown below is the tile and repeat.

I just love the feeling of summer and happiness these designs bring to me! It's been fantastic working on them and I can't wait to receive the printed fabric, and make something with it, which I will of course share!

You can view my fabrics on Spoonflower here, they are not yet for sale but hopefully once I've received mine and am happy with it, it will be available for anyone to buy.. how exciting!
