Once upon a dream fabric competition - the shortlist!

You have kept the beautiful fabric designs just coming and coming over the last three odd weeks since our 'Once upon a dream' fabric competition launched and golly gosh did you make it hard for us! As promised, we sat down this weekend with some coffee, some cake and tried to narrow it down to a shortlist. We were aiming for five, but just couldn't get any less than the 11 entries we have here - and even that was hard enough! To all ladies and gents who entered, we just want to say a massive THANK YOU!  We know you all took time over these designs and are really really touched that you chose to enter them into our competition. 

So, now, here we go, our shortlist for your voting pleasure! Have a scroll down all these beauties below and you can place your vote at the bottom of the post. By Saturday 14th February midnight GMT we will choose a winner, the winner simply being the one with the most votes: 

























We were alerted to the fact that perhaps our initial poll posted on Monday 9th February wasn't actually that fair, because it allowed people to see the results and vote multiple times - making it pretty easy to skew everything! So, we've recreated the poll, this time so that you can only vote once and the winner is kept confidential until the end! To make up for lost time, we've also added an extra day onto the deadline, changing it from Friday 13th midnight GMT to Saturday 14th midnight GMT.

Whose design would you most like to see printed on fabric?!

    I think Anine’s is by far the most polished and sophisticated, absolutely love it.

    I like Charlotte’s, love the colours. Would make a great pair of PJs!!

    Hannah’s is by far the best. Creative, beautiful and technical. The others look cut and pasted where as Hannah’s technical style will make a garment spring to life.

    I love Emma’s frog design! Its colourfully eye catching and whimsical. I think it would look awesome as a quilt with matching cushions. But its a versatile print that would also make a great skirt! (I love frogs! LOL!)

    I love Rose’s design. The colours are beautifully complimentary to each other and I absolutely love to wear turquoise.

    I really like the use of the bold lines and the accent colours really unique!
    Well done to everyone who made the shortlist.

    Alice’s is by far the best! Beautiful pattern but such a simple design, love it!

    Hard to choose because they are all lovely but I would buy Despoina’s.

    They are all very evocative and beautiful- very hard to decide. Congratulations to all the short-listers!

    I LOVE Alice’s fabric. I would love to make a skirt out of that. Love the design and the colours :)

    I really like Samanthas…it speaks to my imagination and I start to tell stories in my head…animal symbolism, suggestive, and lovely colours.

    Ribbet – fabulous design – Ribbet

    I love the design by Kezban. Perhaps depiction of sweet dreams? Would make perfect bed sheets for my children! Sleep in and have sweet dreams :-)

    I like Anine’s work for the art nouveau style and dream-like flow as well as the sophisticated use of colour.

    — Astrid

  • Feb 10, 2015

    I like almost all of them equally. Just Samantha’s maybe it is a little violent but there’s a meaning in there of course. I’d love to have all of them printed on my sheets!

    I like Despoina’s best because it reminds me of grandma’s embroidery .
    It looks dreamy and vintage.

    Anine ist das Schönste! Träume im Jugendstil!

    I love Alice’s design, the drawing is fabulous and the colour choice really works. Well Done!

    I like Clare’s best. It is so like being in a dream and the colours are beautiful. You get lost when you gaze at it. Are we inside a crystal? Are those mountains? Who is hiding? Love it!

    — Rebecca

    I would buy Alice’s because I love both architecture and astronomy and would definitely make a garment out of it.

    Clare’s is the most interesting as it is easy to wear no matter what age group. It also takes on aspects of psychology whereby it’s all about the dreamers perspective . I think the colours are a great combination . Well done !

    I like Tor’s because it’s simple and bold, but also witty and characterful
    Not derivative too.

    I like Alices because it is simple clean and fresh
