First Fabric Design

I took a break from drawing girlfriends these past two weeks and decided to tackle designing fabric. It has been a project I have been wanting to do for a while now. I was inspired by a photograph that Anthropologie posted in their instagram of Mara Ferreira on her blog.

  The hat Mara was wearing inspired me to sketch and watercolor an image of her wearing some Amaria earrings. The girl in the hat then inspired me to watercolor a seashell, and the mother of pearl earrings and pearl necklace. I then decided to design a fabric combining all the watercolors and came up with my first fabric design available at Spoonflower called Lady at the Beach.

Here is my swatch of the fabric
I have also uploaded it in my Shop so if you are interested in a tote, pillow, art print, etc.

I am pretty excited about this first fabric design and have already been working on the second one with a Moroccan theme. I hope to have it up and approved by next week!
