3 yards of what?!....:)




O boy! Great news! At last I've been invited to participate in beta version of Spoonflower! Hooray for that! I get to order up to 3 yards of my own pattern. A tad pricey, but worth it to me:)
Now, what I have to do is decide which pattern(s) to use. Will you help? Will you let me know which is the most worthy of this textile experiment?! If so..... leave a comment. Tell me what's that lucky number(s). I can't wait to read it:)

karen barbé said...

Danielle said...

I can't pick just one....so I pick 1, 13, 15, and 17! They are so great, I love them all!

Julia said...

I LOVE #6 & 8. They'd make fantastic fabric!!

s a n s k u :) said...

This of course depends on what you'll do with the fabric... My choices would be 12, 15 & 20.

Naomi said...

#21! But I love them all...

Brooke S. Rochon said...

I'm in love with #13, because I would make them into curtains and put them in my kitchen. LOVE LOVE LOVE 'EM!

Chantel said...

8, 12 and 24 are the ones that really speak to me. I love the colours, and the patterns seem to pop right off the page.

Go #27!! I love them all though!

Joe Girl said...

12-13-14
Bingo. Bango. Bongo

Love them all!

Anneka Tran said...

Number 7 because it just has a warm autumn/fall feel to it :)

Amanda said...

I think 5, 7, and 25. I have been reading that others have had issues with "matching" colors on Spoonflower, and I think that those 3 have colors which might prove more difficult than others to match.

Plus also, I love those 3!

carolyn Gavin said...

i would chose 7, 12, 16 and 17!
its so hard though!

sarajessica said...

I adore them all but numbers 7, 12 and 20 are supercute! Go for them! :D

Mary said...

#3- because the colours are insanely gorgeous and it's so very you.
#7 - because I think it's one of your best
#21- because it would make a great duvet, especially with wood print sheets (and they are out there).

Kelly Medina said...

These are all wonderful!

I would choose 13, 15 and 17.

Congratulations!

*mindi* said...

i would do 12 and 13, for sure, but probably 13 in one of the other colors that you posted the other day (brown or yellow, or blue, i think?)

Jill Browning said...

Most definitely 13. Wonderful!

heidi said...

oh my goodness I always wondered why you didnt have fabric of your amazing designs! Oh it is so hard to pick, my votes are for:
13, 14, and 20...but goodness it is so hard to pick. I love the pots and pans one though so awesome!

read me... said...

7, 8, 9, 15, 17... how useless, am no help at all, it's impossible to pick just one Helen!!

Cicada Studio said...

I'm not going to look at any of the other responses- it was a tough choice, but in the end #13 won my heart.

Sarah said...

Number 7!!!! I LOVE it.

whiskerbeans said...

lucky gal! I love 9,10 and 16…especially 10! Your graphics are wonderful!

allieger said...

I vote: 6, 10, 13, 15 but they are all fabulous! Way to go!

ellencrimitrent said...

HI Helen,

I loved seeing your house in Design Sponge, I have yet to place the order with Spoonflower too. I had the invitation awhile ago but cannot seem to make the same decision.


It depends what you would use it for, if its for the kids then 12 is it! If for your kitchen then 13 and if a pillow for your living room 7!! I love those funky flowers.

Good luck in your decision.

Kelly said...

They are all fab, but I love 7, 10, 12 and 17. All the best with that! :-)

Tamera said...

I love 20,21, & 22. Thats convenient!

Pang said...

i love them all! but how about 15, 22, & 24!

ana lilia said...

they're all so wonderful! but my two most favorite ones are #7 and #17. can't wait to see how your fabrics turn out!

Robin Zingone said...

3.12.10.25 or 1.5.7.17...or just 14!

playfulmeowz said...

How to choose?? But if I had to, I would choose 9, 13 and 22.

Casey said...

so many choices! not fair!

13 would be my pick

Sarah Jane said...

oh how in the world!!!! there are too many!! I would say pick a color variation that all works together as a color theme, and then move on to the next color theme. I LOVE THEM ALL!

Really Silly Lily & mama said...

14, 20 and 22 are my favourites because they seem more uncommon and interesting than any other fabric pattern out there.

bisma said...

congrats

i really love all your designs
since you have asked i would want you to go for
#13
#16
#17
#26

Anonymous said...

It's so hard to choose!
For fabric I'd go with 7, 17 or 15.
Good luck!

metrochic said...

12 12 12 12 12 12 12 12

i sort of love 12. can you tell? man, that's a tough decision.

april said...

OMG! You are the master pattern maker which makes choosing just one extremely difficult! Someone should really scoop you up to create a whole line of fabrics... but until then... I pick number 7! It's my favouritest.

Heather Moore said...

Impossible to just choose one, but here are my faves (in no order):
25, 17, 13, 7,15 (actually, 7 and 15 are my faves. Ok, 15 is my fave).

cindy said...

I think maybe 20 as I know red does seem to do weird things so maybe that would be a good choice

Niella said...

Oh these are all soooo gorgeous and clever and creative and each and everyone is just sooo delish!!

I really really REALLY love them all, but No.1 and No.17 are so sweet!!

GO YOU LUCKY THING:):)

mizoal said...

I love the designs: 12,17 and 23

there are so fantastic!

Lucy Joy said...

Number 19 has always been my FAV!!! 15 is so cute and 22 lovely! what a desicion! xL

Jeanette said...

Oh, I love all your designs :-)
For a fabric are 15 and 20 my favorites.

Anonymous said...

Number five is my favorite because it just is eye catching from a distance. It somehow hypnotizes me. I also think thirteen and fifteen would make lovely fabrics. All are beautiful and inspiring!

carolyn Gavin said...

i also LUV 7, 12 and 15! i think they are all beautiful together. LUV your house feature on DS. so great!

Gina Perry said...

How exciting! Tough choice - but I'm partial to 12 (curtains or pillows with turquoise trim?), 13 (cafe curtains for the kitchen!), or 15 (little fall quilt for a girl or a smock for camping fun!)

Camilla said...

14!

But I love pretty much all of them.

Little Paper Dog said...

I suggest picking numbers out of a hat because this is a tough decision:)
I do love #13.

Jessica said...

I think I would choose #17. It is a very sweet motive and one of the most versatile of all. It could be used for both for clothes as well as for decorating different rooms. Of course they are all great and it must be really difficult to choose only one..

Helena said...

Hi Helen,

I'm from Brazil and I love to visit your blog every day, such an inspiration!

I would choose 19. I enjoy this cat!

Kisses

downstairs Designs said...

Ph, please do 15! I have been coveting this design for months, view it almost daily it seems! So please print, and then sell some- I will be first in line! I picture darling little bags for my 5 year old from it! I would love to see how it translates into fabric. :)

Also want to tell you how much I love your prints- I have coffee with owl and happiness every day hanging in my studio and they make me smile every time I look at them!

Nina said...

CONGRATS!! Wow - difficult to choose, 'cause they are all GORGEOUS, and I'd want every one of them as fabric!

Anyway...I'd say #7 and #17...love the colors and little birdies!

mariko said...

Whoah, that's a lot of comments! I would select #20 because of the interesting shape of the design. I think it would look very unique and different on fabric and add a whole new dimension to the design!

hoop said...

I am always amazed that you create SO MANY great illustrations and patterns. Choosing is very hard but my favourites are: 13, 26 and 20. Love your blog!

Courtney said...

Tough decision! My top three favorites are 6, 8, and 15.

www.chicacraft.blogspot.com said...

It' hard to decide - you are so prolific, but I really did love your Freda Kalo inspired prints so I'm going to say my favorite is #10. Please let us know how the fabric turns out!

orange you lucky! said...

Thanks, thanks, thanks!!!
I had sooo much fun reading these!
h:)

clara spencer-phillips said...

6 and 9 and 22 OBVIOUSLY!

Bertie said...

All of them are perfect and I'd buy them NOW if they were available! Honestly, you've got to make them all!!!! But as a starting point, I'd do:
#24
#13
#12
#8
#17

Sidsel_._ said...

They are all great but 7, 12 and 17will be great on fabric.

Great blog and great work.

please post the final result, I´m so curious since I´m about to make some Spoonflower fabric soon

honey said...

I like 21 and 17, in that order. 21 would be good for cushions, curtains, etc because it goes with all my dark woodgrain.

Erinautical said...

I like 8 because it strikes me as a really good pattern to use for reusable shopping totes--keep with the eco theme and all that. But honestly, all of these are fabulous and amazing.

gattaca said...

they are so beautifull, but my choice it would be definitly the number 6, the bright turquoise!

Robert Mahar said...

Good grief - so many great options! 15 as it reminds of Japanese kawaii - would look amazing printed on a linen. Personally, I want sheets made from 21!
