I promised to do a fabric design every week in order to really learn the craft. This includes as many Spoonflower challenges as possible. But yikes, the Valentine challenge was due today. Whipping up an effective repeating pattern is no small matter. Hmm, maybe I could use my little wine glass sketch — it has a heart!
And practice is practice, even if the result is ugly.
As I worked I thought of that old song:
Drink to me only with thine eyes,based on poem “Song to Celia” by Ben Jonson, 1616
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss within the cup,
And I’ll not ask for wine.
I almost incorporated the quote into the design, but… enough is enough. That’s a problem for another day.
