Sausage Dog Fabric

I’ve got a new design in my Spoonflower fabric shop

It’s available in two colourways as above, and I have a single FQ available in my patterns/supplies Etsy shop for $6- click here.

I’ve also already whipped up a simple Kindle pouch using it.

Noo Fabric

I was going to post about my curtain- yes singular- this weekend but they were a bit of a shouty disaster so I shall leave that for a time when I have fixed the problem and can think about it without feeling disappointed with myself.

So on a positive note, there are new fabrics in my Spoonflower shop- Barn Owls, Narwhal and a scribbly flowery thing. Here’s what they look like on Kona cotton.

Go get some if you like 😉

And here is a picture of my idiot dog.

Oooh look, new fabric….

I am blogging a lot this week. I’m sorry for clogging up your blog readers 😉

Anyway I just wanted to show you some new samples that came from Spoonflower, which means I now have more fabrics up for sale in my Spoonflower shop– yey!

In real life I prefer the blue tinge background seagulls- it’s not as bright as it looked on my screen. The bluey one is also slightly smaller scale as default as I thought there may as well be another difference. I even don’t mind my windmill one so much now 😀

Still looking for people to join the UK borders quilting bee! Here’s the post all about that.

Also I’m at the quilting stage on my Festival of Quilts dog quilt. If you’re one of the people interested in my progress on that I have a Flickr set here that’s documenting it rather than possibly getting boring by posting about it here all the time. I will be adding at least one more quilting photo tonight.

Buy my fabrics! (please)

Just FYI, I am starting to sell some of my designs over on Spoonflower. I was going to keep them to myself but I felt I could use a little bit of commission money, so it may take a while but I plan to grow my selection. There are more in the pipeline I just need to get them printed for myself before I can OK them for you guys, so please bookmark my page and come back often…. Oh and suggestions for designs are always welcome if you’re looking for something specific!

Also just putting this out there if you would care to have a look through the entries and vote for your favourite. You don’t have to vote for me- but obviously if you do I’ll be chuffed 😀 Voting ends in about a week’s time.

Lastly, on the topic of Crafteroo, get in touch if you want a free quarter page advert in the next issue of the magazine, out quarterly and the next issue is due 1st July. The only catch is for the 3 months we will promote your blog/website/shop/whatever, we would like you to put a button to our site on your blog or website. I’m in the process of making the button now and there’s not an awful long time to go- just a month! We have 23 gaps to fill so don’t be shy 🙂

I need your help quickly!

Tuesday is the closing date for Fabric8 and I’ve come up with a different design (this time computer coloured rather than hand coloured) and I need help choosing which I should enter! I don’t like having a solid white background but that is what seems to pop up a lot on the Pinterest inspiration board so I’ve gone with that.

So which do I enter? You have 24 hours to tell me!

OR THE COLOUR VERSION…

OR

So what do you think?

I would have prefered to do this in block colours rather than the watercolour effect but it’s what the brief ordered….

Matching the repeat up was a total PITA- it has taken me probably 3 hours to arange it properly and colour it and re scan it and then check that it still matches.

Should I do another one? I can change my submission before next week if I change my mind…. it just feels a but vintage-in-a-yucky-way 70s style cotton to me. That’ll be the watercolour effect.

Finished Fabric Designs


These are nowhere near perfect, but I am learning a bit about creating designs for printing onto fabrics as ultimately I want to make a lot of my products with my own surface design as well. I’ve got some dots that I’ve not ordered yet as I’m seeing what money I have left when I get back from holiday but I will have blenders and co-ordinates to go with each of these soon and I want to develop my drawings on the computer a bit ore in the future and add some different elements to make more of a ditsy print design when I get a bit better at it.

What do you think?
