Today I finally got my Spoon Flower Swatches in the mail!!!
This is the fabric I designed (based off of an original embroidered 18th century garment) to make a jacket with the prize money I got from winning the Craft Stylish competition: http://izodiea.livejournal.com/27274.html
The Floral border will be placed at the hem of the jacket, with the rest being stripey goodness :)

Now that I have done tests I can officially open my spoon flower store: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/izodiea
Right now I am only offering one fabric in two colorways (the best of the test swatches) but I have more swatches already coming in the mail. If those work out I will slowly expand to more styles/colors. For example, one of the swatches is of the above design, but done in such a way that when printed on voile it will look like faux white work embroidery.

See More Swatches... )

On a side note, Spoonflower briefly "forgot" that I had Won the contest (Even after I mailed them all the legal papers they requested I fill out) As an appology they gave me an extra $25 credit. Kinda weird...but better for me in the end I suppose, it covered all the swatches :)

17th Century Gown
White Queen costume

1850's Ball Gown

What Should I make next?survey software

Once I make a good headway on my "to finish" pile I want to jump right into a new project from stash. All of the above projects are possible with a little creativity and decisiveness. For instance, the Venetian and 1850's could use the same brocade, which is why I have to choose.

Ultimately I would like to have one costume for every era. Right now the Renaissance is really calling to me because it would be the quickest (don't have to make new patterns+ undies) even though I already Have a costume for that time period.

I am curious for input.
