color of the year
Did you know that January is National Hobby Month? As the new year begins, we all set new goals and refocus on learning new things, improving, and challenging ourselves with hobbies. Here at Spoonflower, we are proud to enable your hobbies whether that’s design, sewing, or both! To celebrate, we’re launching a design challenge each week that’s inspired by a different creative hobby (with a twist, of course). Are you up for the challenge?
Limited Color Palette Sewing
As most designers are already well aware, Pantone has released their highly anticipated color of the year — Greenery! We knew we had to pay homage to this rejuvenating tone by including it in a limited color palette contest featuring sewing (our favorite hobby of course). For the first time ever, we’re putting a twist on the limited palette restriction by allowing designers one color of their choosing! So choose wisely, folks! Download an ASE file of Greenery color palettes here to help you get started or refer to the Color of the Year standards page.
Please use only hex values #88B04B (Greenery), #FFFFFF or #000000 (black, white or both) and ONE color of your choice. Only the full opacity of greenery and black will be permitted. In fairness to those who adhere to the rules, we will be notifying designers and removing entries that include more than the permitted colors, or that use the colors incorrectly. Entries will be previewed at the fat quarter size: 21″ x 18.” Submissions close December 27 at 3 p.m. Eastern, Voting begins December 29.
