Botanical Patterns


If you’ve been around here long, you’ll know I’ve been interested in repeating patterns and spoonflower for a while. So, when the winter doldrums hit this year, I dug into my stockpile of plant photos and made some botanical designs.

The next step was to take them to spoonflower, where patterns can be printed onto gift wrap, fabrics, and wallpaper.

The pink tulips pattern might be a cry for help from this mother of four boys, but if I had a little girl, I would be tempted to stick some of this wall paper in her room.

I have no plans to offer them through my online shop, but if you have a hankering for botanical textiles, they are available to order at roostery.  Likewise, visit spoonflower if you are interested in fabric, giftwrap, or wallpaper.

I’m hoping to make more patterns, but I’m also starting to think about spring, and planning and planting my garden and once, there are real flowers to play with, who knows what will be next?!
