Textile Design


This semester in my computer aided apparel design class we've been working with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to design fabric prints that we'll use in the clothing we're designing. We learned to turn an inspiration image into basic black and white then use it to create our fabric designs.

Original art work, by me, used as my inspiration.

There was a lot of pixel manipulation and detailed work involved in the process. Once we had the design down we were able to turn it into a repeatable print. For the assignment we created 5 images and 2 colored versions.

For extra credit we could get a printed fabric sample from spoonflower.com, which I did. My finished project turned out really well and the fabric swatch was a favorite. I can't wait to see how these prints look combined with the children's clothing I'm designing for the class!


'Bubbles' fabric swatch & a perfect grade. :)


All of my designs are available for you to view (and hopefully purchase in the near future!) at spoonflower.com.
