Do I win an award for most hackneyed blog post title ever? Yaaaaay!
Should I be heavily fined for mentioning Christmas in October? Probably...
Well, I do sort of have an excuse for mentioning Christmas so early.
My new fabric desigN at SPoonflower features lino print stylized 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; you can choose from soft neutral colors, pastels, bright colors, dark colors and the traditional red. You can buy anything from an 8" x 8" Test Swatch, to a fat quarter, to full yards/meters.
If you're in the UK or 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 are into quilting, I have made some 'cheater quilts' from this design and from my lino Print 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 gift for a friend or family member.
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 colours for you to choose from, in either standard or wide stripes, so you can mix and match colours and stripes to your hearts content. The same colour palette was used for my polka dot cushions and doodle line art cushions, so you could go crazy and mix prints too.
At present you'll need to head over to my ZAZZLE store for the full range of cushions, where you can choose from cotton or polyester covers, with or without zips, and indoor or outdoor.
I will be gradually adding the range to my SOCIETY6 and REDBUBBLE stores though - so keep an eye out - or contact me if you would like a design adding ASAP to one of those sites.
If you are looking for fabric with really wide stripes for curtains etc, then head over to my SPOONFLOWER store, where I have a limited range of the colours available as 9in deep stripes. You can also buy wallpaper with very wide stripes from my spoonflower store, as well as from my ROOSTERY store.
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 and on a wide range of home decor, bedding, table linen and wallpaper at ROOSTERY.
Seeing spots can be a good thing!
Spread the Good Vibes, because there just aren't enough sometimes.
This design features inky, distressed effect 'Good Vibes' text on a subtle ink-textured background. It's simple, low-key and suits a wide variety of rooms.
The design is available in (off) white, black, sunshine yellow, peach, pink, aqua-blue and a lovely orange/red.
Head over to either SOCIETY6 or REDBUBBLE to look at the full range of products.
This design was inspired by the trailing leaves wall art Trish Walker has in her bedroom on Jessica Jones. I think that wall art is spray painTed, but my take on the design is printed with real ivy leaves.
I made the leaf prints purposely quite imperfect, because what’s the point of hand printing stuff if it looks like it was made on a computer? The leaves are set on a slightly textured/mottled background to give a bit of extra depth.
The paler colours, such as the silver-gray and gray-green look great when mixed in with existing white bedding.
There are more colours and products available than shown above. You can shop the collection at SOCIETY6 HERE.
Here's a lovely simple design for you.
Understated, subtle, low-key and minimal.
Sometimes, when you've been stressed and busy all day, and you feel like your head/eyes/entire being is about to burst, you want to chill-out in a room that is zen and calm and not all up in your face.
This design features a hand printed lino texture (I didn't cut my hands to shreds making this one! Woo-hoo!) in an overlapping geometric design.
There's enough design and texture to make it interesting without it being overwhelming. Of course it comes in white, but there's some lovely soft pastel shades to choose from too.
As always the design is available via my SOCIETY6 store on a wide range of products, including bedding, bathroom decor and soft furnishings. It's also available via my REDBUBBLE store, if you want a cushion cover without the cushion pad.
If you love cacti and pastel colors - look no further!
I have titled this pretty cactus photograph "I Stand Alone" and it is available as an art print in my SOCIETY6 store, as well as on a selection of home decor. I've given you a few examples above, but check out my store for all available products.
