Fabric Design - The Eternal Quest

Those of you that have been reading my blog know that every now and then i come up with some crappy design for some fabric on a Friday when it is slow at work, well here is this weeks creations.

The colours are wrong but i am trying to get the design and repetitiveness right at the moment... i am looking for an Art Nouveau influence.


I want to end up with one main design then 2-3 other designs to complement it.


I think i am getting closer but as they say "Close.... but no cigar". Spoonflower will just have to wait for the best fabric design EVER!

I would love any honest feedback - colour suggestions - whats ugly - whats not ugly...etc...

Until next time i can blug at work....:-)

I like the green one the best - but then I always like simple....

Oh please don't call your designs crappy! What's crappy is not giving them ago at all! I think they look lovely!
I am liking what's going on with the white, maybe try doing this with the top layer. You have three shades of the burgundy, and I think the darkest colour is working best with the green. Anyway those are a few things I would have a play with, I hope that makes sense and helps a little. I imagine that it is just a whole lot of playing around until you are happy. What programme do you use to make them?

Hi Katy. I like the design, it's the colours that are holding it back. I think it's too many shades of brown or something. The green is good in it and I can see where you're going with the second design. I think the design needs more vibrancy to help all those gorgeous curves and swirls really stand out.

I really like the top one. I would make pillows out of it, if it matched my house.

I agree that the colors can be improved, but I have no recommendations.

I like both designs, I really like the green one but I think that's just because I mostly use small prints.

Good on you for helping out little Gem!
