Playing With Ideas
The past few days have just been so exciting since I made the decision to go to print. I have spent hours and hours at my desk drawing and thinking of clever ideas to make my patterns even more eye-catching. While I do realize that the actual pattern is the most important part, I also know if the candy comes in a pretty wrapper it makes it even more appealing to a potential buyer. I know from my own experiences in fabric shops browsing the pattern displays which ones jump out at me. So, I really want my pattern covers to be cute and fun and very me! Last night when I was laying in bed....trying to get to sleep...my brain was working on overdrive, as usual and I started envisioning these cute little girls dressed in my designs. Of course, my model is Abby, because she has been my inspiration for all of this! This morning when I woke up....way before even a hint of sunrise... I started sketching. Here is a small sample of what I have come up with so far...pretty cute...huh? I'm having way too much fun dressing these little ones up in my designs. I have a long way to go and I'm sure the ideas will continue to keep me up at night for quite some time!
