I just decided, on a whim, to enter this week's fabric design contest at Spoonflower, a cool site where artists can upload designs and people can purchase those designs as different types of fabric, wallpaper, or gift wrap! Friends of mine have competed in these weekly competitions before, and I check in now and again and vote for my favorites, too. The topic for this week's competition was Calaveras, the sugar skulls made for the Day of the Dead in Mexico. I spent a few hours coming up with my design, and here it is. I believe voting opens tomorrow and ends on October 29th, so if you want to pop on over and vote for me, that would be swell!
Update: I was in the TOP TEN!!!! Hooray! So my pattern is on the website in the winner's circle, and also my design is now for sale as fabric! Check out my Spoonflower shop! Thanks to everyone who voted for me!!!! :)
