Not only did I NOT win the last Spoonflower fabric design contest I came in the bottom half of over 80 entries. However extreme humiliating failure only makes me more determined and for those of your keeping score, that makes me the most determined person in the world.

This time they wanted a "toile," oh they GOT a toile!

You just never know when a giant flying squirrel is going to turn on your ass...

That's the most awesome toile I've ever seen!

Thank you!
Even if it doesn't win, I think I am going to at least reupholster an arm chair with the stuff!

10 years ago, I had a squirrel commit suicide underneath my moving tires and I called my mom in hysterics that I had killed an animal. Of course, ever since, I have received everything from squirrel cartoon newpaper clippings to a bronze squirrel paperweight from her. I'm pregnant, and showed her your toile today, and she replied, "NURSERY DECOR!!"

Hahhaaa - thank you, even if it doesn't win I an going to get some printed out anyhow. I think it needs to go onto a nice fancy armchair.

I voted for you, but I also love the cthulu toile!

I liked the cthulu toile as well! I think they will be giving me a run for my money.

Thank you! They have contests once every two weeks so I have plenty of opportunities to hone my fabric design skills.

I voted for the squirrel! It really was my favorite, too. My second-favorite was the fish-zeppelin.

I loved the fish zeppelin too! If I wasn't in the contest I would want that one to win because I just adored it. If I lose to them I won't be too upset.

That is quite something. Quite. Something.

You never know when the squirrels will descend on ancient ruins. There should be a doomsday clock for that at least...

Duly voted: yours first, Cthulu second...I so want swatches of these!

~K~

hahhaaa - well you can actually get swatches of them. I don't know how the Cthulu people do it, but as soon as the contest is over my fabric is available for sale and you can get a little swatch of it. It is 7 bucks!

I love your squirrel toile! But how do you order it? I didn't see it as an option on spoonflower when viewing your pattern.

The giant flying squirrel attack toile is now available for purchase!

Thank you! I don't know what possessed me, but I do think I am going to be recovering a nice fancy armchair in the stuff.
