Your Makes

One of my favourite things about designing fabric for Spoonflower is getting to see all the amazing things you make with it. Here’s some I’ve been sent recently.


Firstly, LOOK AT THIS! It’s a full size adult dress made with my Bunny & Panda fabric in satin to let you dress like a doll. I love all the bows and details and it includes French lace and a corseted back – so fancy. It’s designed and made by The Quirky Doll and you can buy one from their shop.

Bunny & Panda also feature on these sweet baby bibs by Ollie & Coco. They’re handmade in Australia from organic fabrics and would make a lovely gift


More cute bunnies for babies with these handmade toys by Ickle Tings in New Zealand. They use my Disco Bunny Squares design and have a rattle inside and crinkly ears to keep babies entertained. Available in two colours too.

And finally, Rebecca at Hugs Are Fun stitched up my Happy Planet coin purse and did a great job! All my coin purses are available as cut and sew patterns for just $5 and are pretty quick to make.

If you’ve made anything with my fabrics recently, I always love seeing your photos. I’ll also be posting more happy customer photos soon so share your pics with me. I’m @marcelinesmith on Instagram and you can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr too, or just email me!
