Pattern & Inspiration

so excited to share some pics of the actual fabric i received from Spoonflower yesterday! i also am showing how the fabric started. sketches of ink on paper, scanned, arranged, and colored in adobe illustrator. i created these while taking an awesome Surface Pattern Ecourse online with Rachael Taylor & Beth Nicholls.

You may be seeing a few handmade products using these fabrics in the coming weeks! if you want to buy some please visit my Spoonflower shop. You can choose from 8 different fabrics on Spoonflower!

This one is printed on a heavy cotton twill…such a nice weight & softness to it.

This one is printed on a linen-cotton canvas so a little stiffer.

I love how the diamonds change direction when it folds.

sewed a new reversible bag

thanks to my mom for a superbly easy “pattern”…i was finally able to make something out of my favorite fabrics! i was stunned that i didn’t make any mistakes while sewing it which means you can make one too!

here it is, a reversible bag that i plan on using to carry books to/from the library with my little ones. i hope to make a matching outfit for ellie to wear 🙂

fabrics are by designer etsuko furuya & can
be bought at Brooklyn General Store online.
