Fabric Show and Tell

Although I started selling fabric quite quickly on Spoonflower, it took AGES for anyone to send me a photo of it in use.  Thankfully, that seems to be changing so I thought I’d show you a few photos I’ve been sent recently. The Blythe dress above is by Emma. I love that she’s just used it for detailing – a great way to use up small pieces.

Here’s another dress, this time for a Fairyland Little Fee doll. This one is by Jen and has cute ruffles! Jen makes dresses as Spampy Stuff if you want to see more of her work.

And finally, a cool tote bag, which Ryan made for a friend. Nice work.

If you’ve used my fabric for something I would love to see it, especially if it’s not Bunny and Panda – they are definitely the most popular purchase!
