Echo Fabrics - fabric

For all you crafty people out there, sewers, quilters, or just creative. I've created a line of Echo Fabrics! I am pretty excited about theses and plan to use some myself.  I will be adding more throughout the year.  I am also creating another line of fabrics (not Echo) and will post those after I've finished and tested them out.

If you do purchase and make something out of my fabrics please send me a photo! I'd love to see what you guys come up with :) And with permission I would love to share it with the rest of the Echo fans out there!

As you all know Echo is very special to me. This year I have a lot of plans for Echo, this was one of them.  Thank you all for your support and encouragement, you are all terrific!


P.S.  I probably should add a link to the store :)

Cats don't willingly wear sweaters - pencil sketch
Here is my submission to this weeks Illustration Friday. The word was sweater, and I couldn't wait to draw one (I like all the texture of the knit, thought it would be fun).  I couldn't think of a subject until I remembered a friend of mine who likes to dress up his cat. (you know who you are...) My cat, being a "real" cat, would never put up with such nonsense and a serious price would be payed trying to put the sweater say, a limb. In fact, I may be punished just for drawing him in one.

The kids in the Star Wars World coloured - digital illustration
Here we go! I got a chance to do these roughs in colour, (Amelie wouldn't let me NOT do it) I am pretty happy with them!

My kids as Star Wars characters - pencil rough

So Amelie asked me to draw her and Elliott as Star Wars people. So she is a Jedi in training, being trained by Yoda no less! (she looks a little older then she should... working on it!)  Elliott, as he loves his Artoo action figure, is a little boy meeting the real deal.
Hopefully I will get a chance to make these in full colour.

I've since fixed the size on Amelie, I had to make Yoda a lot bigger :) still... maybe in colour it will look a little more like her...
