Fabric design work this week

Spoonflower is where my fabric designs are stored in an online studio. Click here to go to my studio, called ‘Amanda Jane Textiles’.

Each week, Spoonflower issues a design challenge and this week’s was ‘desert animals’. I did some research and made a list of different animal species, but really it had to be camels. They are such splendidly different creatures and having seen and experienced how their extraordinary feet work on shifting sand, I really wanted to draw one. I have other fabric designs that feature creature families, so I decided to do a mother and baby. Here is the art-work in progress.

I felt they deserved a palm tree too.

And here is the finished design.

‘Mama camel and baby’ fabric design by Amanda Jane Textiles

The design will be available from Spoonflower in about a week’s time and they print on a wide variety of fabrics, so there is something for everyone.

    Mmmm, maybe I should add ‘riding a camel’ to my travel wishlist. ☺ Nice design. I like the alternating repeat – works very well.
    You’re reminding me to get on with my design project….
