Spoonflower fabric samples have arrived!
I ordered swatches of the fabrics I have designed for the challenges and they came yesterday.
I am pretty happy with the colors and the quality, for the most part.
The best sample is the BUG sample! It is a cotton/linen blend and I am in LOVE!
It is unusual for me to design anything "large". The size of these bugs are sooo appealing to me. I surprised myself!
I immediately sat down at the machine and made a little "Bug Bag"....
It is not as sturdy as I would like for it to be, but I just couldn't wait!
Here are the two sides of the bag - with black & white checked binding for straps.


  1. CHECK YOU OUT! love that buggy fabric. and also the floral, especially. how very cool! there's nothing like new art supplies to kick you out of the "I'm bore with what I make" doldrums. joy!joy!joy! and a foot of snow too!

  2. Oooh how exciting, spoonflower does make us happy does n't it!
    I am going onto the site right now to order some of your fabric. The bugs are a triumph indeed...I can really imagine a pair of shorts made out of those creepy crawlies!
