The Project Selvage competition closes today. I just had a look over there and from what I can see there are over 700 entries! I've made a few designs with the contest in mind but I've finally decided this marble collection is the one I'm entering. Marbles were the first thought that jumped into my head - about three minutes after I started thinking about baby boys and I'm happy that it appears to be the only design with this theme. I've entered the blue, which colour do you like?
I've always loved marbles. I think they're beautiful. Mr Flowerpress has a lovely collection found over the years since childhood. I like the timeless, vintage quality of marbles, I like the swirls you find inside and how they hang in the glass. And I'm happy with the way my marble collection reads as spots from a distance too, I do love spotty fabric!
From all those entries the organisers choose just 75 for voting on by the Spoonflower community. There's a lot of competition so I will feel really honoured if my design gets through to that stage, fingers crossed.
Whatever happens my marble collection will soon be for sale as a print, I think they would be perfect as a present for new baby boys.
