Here’s the design I had submitted for Spoonflower’s contest last week and it’s still up for voting till tomorrow. We had to add your own design onto a Riveria Tee Pattern which was provided as a template and the tee is meant for 7-8 year old little girlies. The theme was “Under the Sea” and I just happen to have an illustrated pattern which fits the theme… so ta-da…! I made the illustration into a 21 x 18″ repeat and it was really cute to see rows and rows of jellyfishes literally “bobbling” up and down my screen!
It’s my first attempt to design tee for a little girl and I had imagine what colours I want my girl to wear (if I have one). Not the usual light pink, nor magenta or purple… something in between and lilac just seems right. I had fun adding in details and I was even discussing about the design with my mother-in-law who used to be a seamstress! Since this is the first cut-and-sew pattern I have designed, I am really tempted to buy and make it into a tee eventually… and my son would probably think I am harboring secret plans to dress him up like a girl LOL!
