Austrian artist Michaela Kobyakov created this very playful and successful Angler fish pattern printed on Spoonflower's Dogwood Denim fabric.

Sari's Creative Ground and Garden offers a colorful variety of nature based art and photography. Artist Sari Radiates happiness through colors, plants, & sceneries and this image certainly radiates that warmth! She says this is her first time using bright colors, well done, we love this sketch!

So impressed with this gorgeous mockup of a "rainbow snake" pattern artist @aquabubbledesigns created for a Spoonflower challenge, best of luck! Aquabubble sells patterned products on Redbubble, Spoonflower, and TeePublic. Her patterns and illustrations have lots of details immersed in graphic drawings. Lovely work!
@wecouldallbe shared this soft and airy repeating floral pattern that was created for a June In Bloom drawing challenge.

Yellow makes our heart sing!!! 💛💛💛 And so do these happy spring time flowers from Annie Yang who lives in the southern hemisphere where it is becoming chilly and Fall, she is dreaming of spring with this color palette! She created this happy pattern using Procreate. She loves to use nature as her inspiration for art.
We are loving Selma Cardoso's entry for Spoonflower's Design Challenge of Vintage Nostalgia Kitchen Wallpaper. Her entry is a simple geometric, retro, vintage, deco inspiration in emerald green and spearmint colors. Such a lovely mock up as well! Selma sells this pattern in several colorways on spoonflower and other print on demand shops.
French designer Claire Iglesias' art will surely make you smile🤩@claireiglesias_ uses a sophisticated, refined color palette that really pops with her mix of abstracted shapes and cute motifs. She sells wrapping paper, rugs, blankets, and cards through her website along with pattern designs for licensing. Stop by her site for a good time and some shopping!
Twin sisters Caroline & Louise are the talented artists behind @wilsondesigncollective and we adore their highly detailed, nature-inspired designs! This #wip shot shows a gorgeous gouache painting in progress which Louise created for a wallpaper launched last year by @sanderson1860. Louise describes her process of "always making sure the repeat flows gracefully across the width of the design to ensure a balanced repeat." Thanks to @wilsondesigncollective for sharing with #patternobserver 🖤
How stunning is this blockprinted pattern by @365blockprints?! We love the layout and the use of the more faded ink to create the contrasting stripes. @stefano_stoppani is the artist behind this daily project that was started in January of 2021, and we giddily lost track of time falling down the rabbit hole of this gorgeous page! Thanks to @365blockprints for sharing with #patternobserver 🔶
