I have been having fun taking my watercolor paintings and turning them into fabric designs.  I call this one French Script, Butterflies and Roses.

 A customer asked me to design the repeat so that she could create crib shoes.

I created a small repeat design with a Blush border.

One Beginnings and Borders, which measures 7 x 6 inches in a repeat.

The other design is called French Script Butterflies and Roses small.  It measures 5.26 inches by 4.50 inches in a repeat.

I am going to use this larger one printed on Quilting Cotton fabric for a pillow.

Of course, it's always a good idea to have an inspiration board to go with the designs.


My watercolor painting was one of my first paintings, which I created while I was pregnant with my first daughter in 1988.


The original hangs in my in-laws home.  The little one is a print of the original.

Spoonflower will be having another contest. The next contest will be tea towels created for 2012.

 I created this one to be reminiscent of those old Victorian Valentine's.

As you can see, I used my French Script, Butterflies and Roses to create the design.

This design has been submitted for the contest.  I call it A VICTORIAN TEA TOWEL CALENDAR.

Just click on the image of the calendar and it will lead you to my flickr gallery.  Click on the photo again and click on VIEW ALL SIZES at the top righthand corner.  Then choose what size that you would like to download.

The cute black and white Victorian sewing images are from the lovely Karen, from The Graphics Fairy.
