I ordered some new fabrics from Spoonflower- my own designs, but in different materials. The top one is a cotton voile in the 'heidi' pattern and the bottom is kona cotton in a reduced-scale print of the 'vita' design. In the past I've also ordered the cotton sateen and the linen canvas, and been very pleased with them.
The cotton voile I ordered is so fine and beautiful. I had originally intended to make K a little top from it but I think it will be too lightweight and sheer so instead I've been handsewing (very slowly and rather wonkily) a doll's blanket or quilt, for my littlest niece who has a birthday coming up. I layered up the voile with nice organic cotton batting inside and a different cotton print on the underside. When I've finished the running-stitch quilting, I'll bind around the edge I think. I would love to make a full-sized quilt like this- maybe one of these day I will- I imagine something like these but from pale fabrics.
I've set up my own Spoonflower shop- it's here. I thought it would be easier for anyone who wanted to buy fabric to get it from there directly because it will always be in stock (it gets printed on demand), can be ordered in a variety of different fabric types such as stretch cotton or sateen, is a fair bit cheaper (if you order a yard or more) and won't be shipped around the world twice- I was having twinges of guilt about my fabric and its air miles. And of course, even better, there are lots of other designs on Spoonflower to browse and admire. I have a little bit of original fabric still in my etsy shop and I've reduced the price of that until it's all used up. Thank you!
I hope you have a great weekend! See you next week.
