I hope everyone who celebrates had a Happy Thanksgiving, a Happy Hanukkah (or both!) I created some new patterns on Spoonflower (which will be up for sale once I approve the proofs) A cut & sew Christmas tree, some patterned fabrics, and a wall decal. Now that Thanksgiving is over all the Christmas decorations are coming out! I’ll have the Christmas Music mixer available real soon too, so check back for that!
I’ve been pushing myself lately to do more of the Spoonflower contests, its fun to try and come up with a design based on ideas I might not have ever thought about doing. The Film Noir was actually lots of fun to work on.
I received a lovely email from Britta after she spotted some of my Santa fabric
in a window display in Europe. The store is C&A, and I’d love to know more if anyone happens to know who made the window displays.
Ghost candle repeat for Spoonflower’s ghost contest, any excuse to play around with Halloween images!
I had an idea to turn a vintage paper placemat into something that could be used again and again, and of course Spoonflower helped make my idea a reality! You could really do this with any vintage paper placemats you might be holding onto…Christmas, Easter, you name it! Just scan the paper one and upload it to Spoonflower. You can find this one here
. It’s intended to be printed on the linen cotton canvas, a fat quarter gives you two placemats, and a whole yard is enough to make 8 (or four double sided).
You could hem the edges, or as I did sandwich them with some white fleece and a backing fabric to give them a nice quilted feel.
I know its just Sept 3rd, but I wanted to post this so there is time to get your fabric & placemats sewn up before October begins :)
