Do I win an award for the most hackneyed blog post title ever? Yaaaaay!
Should I be heavily fined for mentioning Christmas in October? Probably….but I do have a valid excuse.
My new fabric design at Spoonflower features stylized lino print snowflakes in a connecting but broken pattern. It is perfect for crafts, quilting and making lovely gifts for your loved ones, so I’m mentioning it now because that stuff takes time to make.
As you can see from the above picture, the design is available in 20 colors: choose from soft neutral colors, pastels, brights, darks and the traditional red. You can buy everything from an 8” x 8” test swatch, to a fat quarter, to full yards/meters.
If you’re in the UK/Europe, don’t worry about ordering from a US based company. Spoonflower also has a manufacturing facility in Berlin, so there will be no import charges.
Oh, and if you’re into quilting, I have made some ‘cheater quilts’ fabric from both this design and from my Lino Stars pattern. The ‘cheater quilts’ consist of the prints at various mixed scales in 6” squares, so you don’t need to piece anything together.
The squares have a very faint shaded line between them, and you can either use the fabric as it is, sew along the lines/borders for a square padded effect or add a few stitches at the corner of each square (my favourite option) for a softer quilted look. The last option is also a great option for kids if they want to make a Christmas gift for a friend or family member.
Are you a fan of everything Mid Century? Who in their right mind isn’t…
Well, good news, my latest design is a large scale, retro, geometric, Mid Century inspired pattern, featuring lino-printed geometric shapes with a distressed ink texture. The slightly overlapped underlying shapes are solid (rather than lino printed) in a contrasting color, and the background is made up of overlapping skewed squares and rectangles.
It’s available in 30 colors on a wide range of fabrics and wallpaper at both Spoonflower and Fashion Formula- click here for more details.
Spoonflower also offer the design on a range of ready-made curtains, bedding, table linen and home decor, so if you want a lovely retro table cloth for your dining table or some cool Mid Century curtains, but you can’t sew - get on over to Spoonflower and have them delivered.
The print is also available at a slightly smaller scale on a range of cushions/pillows and home decor/accessories.

Yes, I did pick the two colors in the above image because they remind me of Charlie Brown’s famous T-Shirt….Good Grief!
So, to go with my Polka Dot and Striped pillows/cushions, I also offer a Chevron Print in the same range of colors, because I’m thoughtful like that.
My Zazzle store has the full range of cushions, where you can choose from cotton or polyester covers, with or without zips and from indoor or outdoor covers.
Or, head over to my Redbubble store to find the wide chevron print on cushions/pillows (with or without insert) and on a range of home decor and accessories.
For fabric with large scale/wide/deep chevrons you can purchase from either my Zazzle or Spoonflower stores. Spoonflower also offers the print on wallpaper and on a wide range of home decor, bedlinen and table linen.
What have I got for you today? STriped cushions, or pillows if you prefer.
Yes, they’re a bit ubiquitous, but that’s because they’re an enduring classic. Stripes never go out of style. Ever!
As you can see from the above image, I have a massive range of colors for you to choose from, in either standard or wide stripes, so you can mix and match colors and stripes to your hearts content. The same color palette was used for my polka dot, chevron and doodle line art cushions, so you could go crazy and match prints/patterns too.
At present you’ll need to visit my Zazzle store for the full range of striped cushions.
If you are looking for wallpaper, ready-made home decor, or fabric with really wide/deep stripes then head over to my Spoonflower store, where I have a limited range of the colors available as 9 inch deep stripes.
Polka Dots: modern but retro, fun yet elegant.
My polka dot pattern features randomly scattered spots - just because I prefer them that way - and is available in almost 50 colours: brights, darks, pastels, neutrals and desaturated colours, so you should be able to find a colour for any room.
For the widest range of home decor, please head to my Society6 or Redbubble stores.
Although if you love shopping at Zazzle, I do sell my print there on cushions/pillows, fabric (large and small scale pattern), and table lamps/light shades.
I also sell a large scale polka dot print on fabric and wallpaper via Spoonflower. They also offer the print on a large range of ready-made home decor, bedding and table linen
Seeing spots can be a good thing!
I like to sleep in a nice, calm, simple bedroom.
Call it minimalist, or scandi, or whatever you like, but really I just like to keep things simple, low-key and non-fussy.
At the end of the day, I don't want to look at any visual clutter, I don't want to have to process any bold colorfuL patterns (as much as I like them) because by the time it comes to hit the hay, I quite often feel like my eyes are about to burst. I also have a problem trying to switch my brain off...
So, I really designed this bedding for myself. It consists of white lino-printed hexagons arranged into a penny-tile pattern on a pale silver-gray. This pattern is also available in the reverse print and in many other colours.
Head to my Spoonflower store to purchase the design on fabric, wallpaper or ready-made home decor, bedding and table linen.
Have you seen my Doodle Line Art pattern yet? I drew it by hand and it's my favourite!
The print/pattern is available in over 50 colors, (coral being the latest) and suits a massive variety of room styles:
Clean & Modern (but not boring!) - yes
Minimal, with an accent color - yes
Scandinavian style - yes. The pattern compliments clean, uncluttered but cosy rooms while providing a bit of interest.
Mid Century Modern - yes. The curvy, swirly pattern and clean lines go so well with all things MCM. It's modern but retro and I have some really cool colors available.
Bedrooms, living rooms, dens, snugs, nurseries, beach houses, conservatories, indoor cushions, outdoor cushions - yes, this print is perfect for them all.
Are you looking for a certain color palette? I have them all covered - neutrals, pastels, brights, darks, desaturated colors and retro colors. If you want a color I don't currently offer, just let me know and I'll sort that out for you.
