Hello ! Today I’m so excited to share with you my new fabric patterns for Summer 2014, you’ll find prints inspired by the coastline and the casual vibe of this season, and all are available in bright colors. Designing fabric patterns is a passion of mine and the ultimate DIY project from concept to completion. Thank you so much for following along on this adventure, some of you even purchasing some of my prints, I so appreciate it !
When we took a trip to Hawaii last year I was so inspired by the islands they influenced many of the designs including Balmy and Aloha and I took yards of fabrics with me to photograph them on this year’s trip to Kauai. It was fun to photograph on location! :) I colorized some old favorites from the Winter collection too, find the new prints and older ones all in my Spoonflower shop.
This process is a labor of love for me, from the original sketch to final colorization, then comes printing, sewing and styling, I enjoy it all so much. I poured my heart and tons of hours into this recent collection, I hope you enjoy it ! View the Summer Lookbook below or follow this link to read it on Issuu.
I set up a Kate Riley Porfolio website, the larger images from the Lookbook are all there, just visit the Fabric Designs tab, pin your favorites and spread the word!
I’m going to tackle a children’s collection next, I have a kids’ bedroom to decorate so I’m inspired by that opportunity! And of course I do so love the holidays so look for new Christmas prints and gift wraps in November just like last year. If you have any ideas for new patterns, I’d love to hear about them, perhaps I’ll design a new one inspired by YOU!
Enjoy the new collection! .
