There’s a whole load of new patterns in my Spoonflower store for fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap.

100 Days of Kawaii Characters

If you were a fan of any of the patterns I created during my 100 Day Project, they’re all now available. I’ve put them in their own collection and there’s 19 altogether, since some have multiple colourways. I can’t wait to see what people make with these.

I also had a few requests for extra Christmas designs so you’ll find girls-only and boys-only cookies and some mini size snowflakes. If you’re planning to sew some gifts, it’s never too early to start and these would be lovely on cosy fleece, velvet or satin.

And if you’re enjoying all things Autumn/Fall, Spoonflower have 15% off 1+ yards/metres of fabric and rolls of gift wrap in selected designs through October 7th. A few of mine are included with apples, bears, pumpkins and…um, lucky clover?

I love seeing what you make with my fabric, and I’m happy to promote items you make to sell, so tag me on social media or message me.
