Fabric Swatches

After receiving my swatch sampler from spoonflower last month, I went through my files and made some adjustments to my patterns. Now 27 patterns are available for sale on fabric; they are also for sale as wallpaper and gift wrap.

I am participating in first round of next month’s weekly design prompts on spoonflower, too. The theme is ABCs, 123s and I’ve added two colorway sets of a pattern of simplified atoms from the periodic table of the elements which I’m calling Al Be C, 123. When I receive the samples for those patterns, I will make them available for sale, too.

A few days ago, I received notification from zazzle that I achieved pro status, so now there is a zpro tag on the 13sparrows store which I hope will lead to more visibility in search results. [edit – I have since closed my zazzle shops.]

Spoonflower

This month, I ordered spoonflower fabric samples in order to release the patterns in my shop for sale. With variations in each of the Summer Camp designs, as well as a few Holiday designs plus insect patterns, I will have 35 patterns available for purchase. First I have to make some adjustments to line weight and scale.

Elsewhere, in order to make everything easier to find, I moved all of my illustrated zazzle products to a single storefront. Then I organized the categories and collections so it’s easier to find products with the same design theme. Collections have a neater page appearance than Categories, which is better for linking from other places. [edit – I have since closed my zazzle shops.]

Finally, I revamped all of my thumbnail images on teacherspayteachers so my storefront looks more unified.
