Doodle Patterns v1.10

Posted on by 0 comment

There are so many exciting things happening all at once! :o) Yesterday the update to Doodle Patterns went through too! This means you now have the excitement of a “Random” button to choose the next pattern for you :o)

There’s also a filtering option which lets you narrow down the pattern choice with things like “border”, “fill”, “dark”, “light”, “3D”, etc :o)

Plus, there’s an additional 50 patterns available via an In-App Purchase! :o) You can see the final image for all of the patterns so you can decide whether or not you want to make the purchase by knowing all of the contents. By paying you unlock all the instructions for the 50 new patterns :o)

Thanks to those who have already downloaded the update and to the eager people who’ve already purchased the new patterns too! :o) I better start working on the next pack soon! :o)

Amazingly only 16 people were involved in this project, but that’s probably because most of it was drawn during beta by my lovely group of testers :o)

Society6 Merchandise!

At the end of a Doodling Together project I spend some time editing the image to ensure a striking black and white image. Then I upload the highest quality copy I have to Society6 so we can all buy cool stuff! :o)

Society6 sell a range of products with your own design on them including art prints, mugs, clocks, tote bags, rugs and shower curtains! :o) Obviously I didn’t want to recommend them without trying them out first, to be sure that the products we’re making are good quality :o)

I used the top 5×5 square of Doodling Together #1 as the test print and ordered a nice selection of items :o)

Let’s start with the art print as that’s what I expect most people to be interested in…

IMG_7781

This isn’t the frame you can order them with, just one we found which would fit :o) The print is really clear and the paper very white. We ordered the SMALL print which is 11×11 inches with a 1 inch border around. The X-LARGE is over twice that size so you could have the whole image with squares the same size as this print – which gives great detail. I suspect even the complete 10×10 image would look amazing on the SMALL print :o) I’m sure I’ll be finding out soon! ;o)

The next item I want to talk about is the tote bag :o) As this is an item which is both pretty to look at and functionally useful :o)

The print goes completely edge to edge and is repeated on the back. You lose a little of the very edge of the image due to the seams, but it’s only a little :o) The print isn’t quite as vivid on this material – but it still looks great! The bag is made of thick material, well sewn and looks like it will withstand a lot of use :o) I can’t wait to take mine shopping!

The cushion cover is very similar except that the material seems to start off a bit whiter which gives a brighter print :o) You again lose a little at the edge to the seams, but it does mean complete coverage which is worth a little loss :o)

This is their 20×20 Indoor cover and it looks great on our sofa! :o)

The other items we ordered don’t use a square image which is a bit of a shame with the shape of our projects, but we might do some special shaped projects in the future! ;o)

The mug is, as you might expect, mug shaped :o) The print on our first one came a bit smudged in one place, but we have a second one on the way so hopefully it was just an error on their part. They were very quick to agree the replacement! Other than the smudge it looks fab! :o)

The final item is probably my favourite :o) We ordered a rug! It’s not a thick soft fluffy rug, more like an extra thick tea towel type material. We ordered the smallest size which is still pretty large.

It looks amazing and has found a home in our bathroom :o) It’s even kitty approved! ;o)

With all these wonderful copies of the image around the house I find I’m spotting more and more of the different patterns as I’m looking at it! :o) The products all came out really well and I’ve been very impressed with their customer service too!

If you decide to order something from one of the projects I’d love to see photos! Particularly if it’s an item I haven’t yet bought! :o)

Doodling Together Preview

Doodling Together has been submitted to the App Store and is in the queue awaiting Apple’s approval. This usually takes 1-2 weeks, so it won’t be long before you all get to join in the doodling! :o)

For those who don’t know, Doodling Together takes a large string and chops it up into small squares. You claim a square, print it out, doodle on it, and then take a photo and upload it into the project :o)

We create giant collaborative pieces of art! Each unique square brought together into a single large picture! :o)

Watch the string slowly fill in! Like and comment on the completed squares

We have a 100 square project now almost complete just thanks to a few very enthusiastic testers :o)

When I asked in a Facebook group of tanglers if anyone would like a sneak preview I had a lot of enthusiastic responses and a few more people joined in without any problems :o)

I can’t wait to see even more of you doodling together with us and the glorious art we will all produce! :o)
