Repper what you sew!

Sometimes clearing out your inbox sets your day out in a whole new (and very exciting) direction.

This morning, for instance, I finally made time to have a look at a link sent to me by a work buddy late last month. And, in the space of five minutes my mind was well and truly blown.

Repper takes an image and lets you turn it into a pattern. I trialed the demo version and here are the results...

Thanks for your praise!
Great to hear you like patterning with Repper. Let us know when you get some patterns printed with Spoonflower or otherwise; we are curious and love to feature interesting results on our blog!

Cheers,

The patterns made from the second two images make sense, but I don't understand how the first two produced such divergent colours! Please explain. That's what's making my head explode, even though I think it has excellent potential.
