Surface Pattern Design – New Redbubble Collections

It’s been a while since I sat down and drew some repeating surface patterns, so I went back to the Spoonflower Design Challenges to get some inspiration.

While these patterns aren’t available to vote for just yet (I’ll post an update to my feed here and on my Instagram story with the link when it is available), I have added them to Redbubble.

They are in three separate collections, because I wanted to have both the single flower and the repeating pattern with the flower available on certain products.

You can find the single flower herethe flower pattern here, and the square pattern here. You can also find any of my previous patterns and some photography on many products over there. 

Last but not least, you can find each of these designs as free downloadable device backgrounds in the Backgrounds album in my gallery on Ko-Fi, sized for phones, computers, and iPads/tablets.

Finished Object – Overleaf Cardigan

This past week I have had a bit of a project tunnel vision in order to make this Overleaf cardigan by Taiga Hilliard in time for it to be shipped off in time for mother’s day.

I was approached by the owner of a local yarn shop to take over a project she had intended to finish for her mother for Mother’s Day (which was yesterday in the US, for anyone reading from elsewhere). So I solely focused on it any time I had, leading to no progress pictures because I wanted to get it done as quickly as possible and did not take the time to pause and take progress pics.
This is the size XL, made on size 6 needles to the gauge called for in the pattern. I used three full balls of the Mary Gavin Yarns Pepino in the color Frolic, and this yarn was a dream to work with. I jumped right in and didn’t bother to look at the yarn tags until I was almost done with ball 2 and nowhere near done with the sweater, and I didn’t realize it was a linen yarn until I read that. Turns out the third ball had jumped out of the bag before I picked it up and was found, so all was good and the project got finished.

We even found the adorable wooden buttons to go along with it, and I think they went just perfectly.
