New Patterns On-Demand

I mentioned in my colouring in post that I had made my iPad donut drawings into a pattern for my on-demand stores and I carried on with the fruit and space drawings too.

The fruit makes for such a cute pattern and is at the top of my list for a purchase once I decide which one to buy. You can find all these products and more at Redbubble and Society6.

My Outer Space piece was more of a standalone but I also made it into a pattern for a few products on Redbubble & Society6. This is perhaps the first pattern of mine that I feel I could actually wear on leggings.

And here’s what the Donuts look like on more products, also at Redbubble & Society6.

I’ve uploaded them to Spoonflower too for fabric so will order some swatches soon.
