Exciting news, sample swatches of my new fabrics have arrived! This of course means that they're also now available for sale from my Spoonflower shop if any take your fancy for your own crafting projects.
I've already got a few ideas of what i want to create with some of these designs but if you have any bright ideas of what you think they would work well, do let me know in the comments! :)
Spring Fresh Fabric CollectionI was so excited when the samples arrived in the post this morning that i wanted to get them photographed straight away... i thought they would look cute hanging on a line but a you can see from the image at the top of the post, the wind was making this very hard work... I managed to get the chicks done though - here's a close up of the turquoise version.
All of the swatches are 8x8 inches... i'm tempted to make some little egg cosies from the chick designs... what do you think?
Here are the bunnies...
... i'm pretty pleased with how they've turned out, for some reason my first thought of what to make with this design is oven mitts! I think they would be really cute :) I'll need to order some more of the fabric first though... any thoughts on what i could make with these 8x8" swatches?
Here are the flowery designs in colours to compliment the rest...
... i'm thinking either lavender pillows or mini bunting for these swatches or perhaps i'll combine the yellow and green with the rabbits above for some fun spring bunting on a slightly larger scale.
Last but not least from the Spring Fresh collection is my Birds On A Wire design...
... this is one of my favs (as you can probably tell as its currently gracing the background of my blog!) and i can't wait to make something with it... i'm just not sure what that's going to be yet!
To view details or buy any of these fabrics visit my Spring Fresh collection over on Spoonflower.
Garden Room Fabric Collection
If you're a regular visitor to my blog you might remember me showing you my Garden Room designs recently. I created them with soft furnishings for conservatories and other outdoor/indoor spaces in mind but of course they could work well in lots of other situations too!
Here is the garden tools design...
I'm really pleased with how this design looks in 'real life' and i'm happy with all the colourways although i think this is my favourite... there's something modern about the pastel blue on the olive green which i find refreshing, i hope you like it too!
The other design in my Garden Room collection so far is the garden chairs...
I'm happy with how they turned out too although this is not the best picture... i think i was getting a bit fed up of the wind blowing anything and everything away by the time i took it! Hopefully it still gives you an idea of how the design looks once its printed onto fabric though.
All of these photos show the colours pretty much as the are in real life. I hope they have helped you visualise the designs more clearly than the digital images i've been able to show you in the past. I would love to know what your favourites are if you have any!
Thank you very much to all those who left kind comments about my new mini notebooks last week, as always i enjoyed reading them and of course visiting the other Handmade Monday blogs and reading about everyone else's crafting adventures (which is where i'm off too now btw... have a great week and see you next time!)
