So more than two months ago I had a contest to raise followers on my 8BitHealey facebook page. I said when we hit 100 likes, someone would earn a free quilt. The promotion actually brought in about 124 followers so I’d say it was a success. The winner was a friends girlfriend and she requested a new original design (which I was hoping the winner would do, my sorry self needs motivation.) She was very patient and although it took some time, I’m glad she was willing to wait for the product!
Although its way too girly for me, I love this project because it was the most colorful, more complex and most original design I’ve attempted. A lot of peach art is simple or unattractive, so I tried to keep the traditional style and color while adding more cute touches, like the wink, anime eyes, rosy checks, heart and pink sparkle details on her top. The anime eyes are taken from another pixel piece, the heart is from Zelda I think and the wink I winged all on my own. The background, while very girly, goes nicely and that’s all thanks to feedback from the facebook page (Thanks Nicholas!!) but could be easily changed to whatever the buyer prefers. I went with a making lilac fleece backing as well.
I’d like to offer a deal where if somebody buys a blanket and a pillow together, they get a second pillow free. I’m not exactly sure how to advertise this deal though. It might just have to be by word of mouth. If anybody wants to do this, contact me!!
