Hi there! I’m Annie Webster, the designer behind Annie C Designs. This site is filled with my surface pattern designs.
I have long been a doodler and a color-er. During my teenage years, I would spend hours in my room drawing geometric designs and coloring them in with Crayola markers. Once I found my way to graphic design school, I discovered Adobe Illustrator and a whole new world of geometric drawing tools.
I love hexagons and bright colors!
I live in Kansas City, Missouri with my husband, Mike. When I am not creating surface pattern designs, I am playing with yarn. You can see my fiber art work at www.websterfiberarts.com.
About the Products
All of the products on my site are manufactured by third party vendors. I earn a commission on each purchase. You’ll place your order on those vendor sites (there are links throughout www.anniecdesigns.com to get you where you need to go). These third party vendors include:
Spoonflower, Sprout, & Roostery
Spoonflower prints my designs on a number of different base fabrics, wallpapers, and gift wraps. Fabrics can be purchased by the yard, by fat quarters, and by 8″ x 8″ test swatches on everything from basic cotton to silk crepe de chine. While I have a sample book of all of these fabrics, I most often work with the basic cotton or the Kona cotton. I have ordered fabric from Spoonflower and think it is good product. I’ve washed it, sewed it, embroidered it, and like it!
I’ve used Spoonflower’s giftwrap as well, and it is thick and lovely.
Sprout is a cut-and-sew pattern company owned by Spoonflower. Your garment or accessory pattern in printed directly on the fabric, so you just cut it out and sew it together (directions are provided). I’m not a spectacular sew-er, but I have put together a Christmas stocking using Sprout, and it is pretty cute.
Roostery is also part of the Spoonflower family. They specialize in using Spoonflower fabrics to make home décor items like pillows, furniture, tea towels, and more.
All of these fabrics are printed on one side of the fabric, so there is a front (my designs) and a back (blank white ) to your fabric.
Society6 produces a variety of home décor and personal accessory items with my surface pattern designs. I have ordered tote bags, pouches, and coffee mugs from Society6 and have been very pleased with the print and product quality.
Like Society6, RedBubble prints my designs on a number of home décor, clothing, and personal items. There is some overlap in the offerings between the two companies, but each company has unique offerings, too. As of this writing, RedBubble still offers Samsung Galaxy 3 phone cases, which is great because I have an old phone. I love my RedBubble phone case, and I’m also fond of the notebooks and journals I have ordered from them. Again, the print and product quality are very good here.
