out on a limb

In a brief moment of courage (one that has since faded for the most part) I submitted a design for Spoonflower's latest fabric design contest. It is a collaboration between Spoonflower and a company called Boba. They make a selection of baby carriers. The theme was 'nature' (love that) and the design was geared toward babies (some of my favorite people!). They asked that it also coordinate with their company colors. Easy and fun, right? Well, not easy but definitely fun.
They had so many entries that they are doing two rounds of voting. You can check out all the designs and vote here. You can vote for as many as you want so you won't have to go through the agony of choosing just one. There are so many beauties there, oh my gosh. Even one from Betz White , and Cicada Studio (holy smokes what was I thinking?).
It probably seems like I am asking for votes, right? I promise I'm not, I just wanted to share this endevour with you here. I hope if you were going to vote that you would just vote for the one(s) you thought were the best - seriously, folks. seriously.

I think yours is beautiful. It would definitely catch my eye as a fabric used for a carrier or really anything. It was one of my favorites and I am not just saying that. Good for you for doing something so brave!

I actually voted for your fabric this morning! I had actually already clicked on it before I noticed it was yours (or at least I figured it was since it was by September House). I hope your design gets chosen - that would be so neat!

Thanks for the intro to spoonflower. I had a great time looking at the patterns and will probably go back to vote on other contests. Best of luck.
