Happy Spring Pattern

Can you guess what I plan to do this weekend? I plan to go for a walk and pick myself a huge bunch of tiny fresh wild anemones. So I made this pattern today – just for fun – but could be fun to turn it into a repeat pattern for print or fabric also. Would you buy something like this for sewing or as a greeting card maybe ??. Have a lovely weekend and Happy Spring!

 

DIY Easter Eggs – part 2 – free download

It´s time to wish you all a Happy Easter – and time again to share my free download with DIY Easter Eggs & Rabbits. They are made with some of my repeat patterns and are super simple to make.
Print them out on thick A4 paper – cut them out and mix & match. Glue 2 eggs together with a piece of sewing tread in the middle – or make a string of eggs – et voila! The rabbits are a bit more tricky – so I´ve made a front and back version of them. Cut the front first – glue it to the back of the rabbit and cut the back afterwards.
You can download the front here and the back here. Have fun!

My Easter download has become quite a tradition now – and have been spread world wide on the web. I love to see all the different & creative ways they have been used – here´s some examples from Denmark, France, Germany and USA.

There´s both an English version and a danish version of my design. Just download, print on thick A4 – fold and cut – write something sweet – and you are all set! And now that you got the card for free – you can either make a donation to Maternity Worldwide – og go shopping in my shop!I´ve started my own mother´s day tradition – and every year I donate money to Maternity Worldwide to save a mother´s life. Because saving a life really beats chocolate & flowers! Please spread the word about my Free Mother´s Day cards. Spred gerne budskabet om mine Mors dags kort.

 

Envelop – illustrated cotton goodies

For a while I´ve had my eyes on Envelop – a Belgium company that produces made-to-order textile products. And with their new & awesome selection of graphic prints from illustrators around the world – it´s time to share! I tried to select a few of my favorites here – but have a look yourself in their shop if you are looking for unique and cool designed textiles . And if you are a designer or illustrator – you can design and sell your own textiles via their online store.
Does it get any better than this?

 

Free DIY Easter Eggs

I´ll be really busy for the next couple of days celebrating my 40th B-day and my daughters 6th B-day. So while I´m busy and having a small blog-break I think it´s time to share my little DIY Easter Eggs & Rabbits. They are made with some of my repeat patterns and are super simple to make.
Print them out on thick A4 paper – cut them out and mix & match. Glue 2 eggs together with a piece of sewing tread in the middle – or make a string of eggs – et voila!

Poppy-print til silketørklæder

Design af Valmueprint til silketørklæde og kalender – autumn 2008. Tørklædet er designet forKræftens Bekæmpelse – og sælges via webshop til medlemmer. Når man som her designer næsten en sæson frem – er det altid spændende og se om man “har ramt” sæsones farver og stil som vist i dette moodboard.

 


Støt Brysterne 2007

Spagat designede kampagnemotivet til Kræftens Bekæmpelses “Støt Brysterne”-kampagne i 2007. Det var vigtigt for mig at få lidt humor og lune ind i designet, da det er et følsomt emne. 1 ud af 9 kvinder rammes af brystkræft. Så designet forestiller ni par bryster i diverse størrelser, farver og former – og ja, i det niende par mangler der altså et bryst! For sådan husker jeg min mormor – der levede lykkeligt i mange år med bare ét bryst. Motivet er designet så det fungerer både som enkelt motiv og som repeat pattern – og blev anvendt på alt lige fra gummistøvler, t-shirts og kaffekopper.
