Solar System Fabric

performance pique

I got something fun in the post yesterday – a swatch of my Say Hello to the Solar System fabric! It’s printed on one of Spoonflower’s newest fabric bases – Performance Piqué, a stretchy sporty fabric. It’s always interesting to see what the printing is like and this one turned out lovely with lots of detail.

Now that I have a swatch, I’ve made the fabric available to buy on all bases, plus on wallpaper and gift wrap too, if you have any fun projects in mind. The Faux Suede swatches from Free Swatch Day will hopefully be arriving soon too – if you ordered one of my designs, do share a photo!
