more fabric designs

This is a fabric I designed this morning. I began with the photo below and digitally altered it in Photoshop. I wanted to make a monochrome image to print on cotton/canvas for making cushions or a cloth bag.

This is the original photo of Ashleigh that I used as the basis of the digital manipulation
Here is a picture of the textile I designed, at a half repeat

The finished textile at a half repeat (52x18"). I called it "Sweet Leah"
I positioned the image so that a metre of the fabric would make 3 42x42cm (17x17") cushions. I can't sell any of this fabric until I've bought some myself to physically sample that it has printed satisfactorily! But some time in the next few weeks I hope to show you the finished cushions and a tote bag. At present only 2 of my designs are available for purchase by the metre.

You can see more of my textile designs at   http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/la_perla  My Spoonflower shop is "la_perla"

Also if you go over to check out the Spoonflower website go to their homepage and have a look at their weekly fabric design competition. The current one is to design a reusable cloth shopping bag to celebrate "Earth Week". I entered a design I called "Earth Angel grocery bag". You might like to look at the entries at vote for your favourites.
