New Fabric Designs at Spoonflower

sewing notions

I got my gigantic load of swatches in last week so you can now buy my Sewing Notions co-ordinates designs via Spoonflower. You can either buy the four designs on one yard, with the patterns printed quite large, or individual designs where the patterns are much smaller. I haven’t decided on the other colourways yet but I’l let you know if I make any available for sale.

Also new, some updated Cookie Cute fabric, which people have already been buying, yay! The green is nice and festive for Christmas sewing projects and the white was a total headache getting both the cookies and the stripes to repeat – luckily it looks awesome.

And finally, my Say Hello to the Solar System design is available too. All the above can be purchased on all fabric bases and some as gift wrap, decals and wallpaper too, should you wish. As always, do let me know if you make anything with my designs – I love seeing your photos!
