When I saw this week's Spoonflower contest theme, hedgehogs, I couldn't stop drawing these fun little critters. I wanted to try my hand at a slightly different method of illustration for a pattern, so I created this design entirely in Photoshop.
I sketched out my rough ideas in my trusty sketchbook, then used my drawing tablet to trace them in Photoshop. I wanted to try this out after watching a tutorial on Creativebug by Heather Ross on digital illustration for fabric design. It took me a little bit to get comfortable with it, but I love the way it turned out.
If you like this pattern, you can vote for it in this week's contest at Spoonflower. Be sure to check out all the other entries, too. There are some amazingly adorable patterns this week. You can also purchase yardage of this fabric in my Spoonflower shop. I just ordered some myself and am planning to make some lounging-around-the-house shorts, because who doesn't want to relax with a bunch of hedgies in a strawberry patch?
