Cowboy Feedsack Fabric - and a Contest!

Here's the latest - a super cute 40s/50s cowboys vintage feedsack print (I've seen this in two different colourways - might try the other one too). This is another design that's been on my to-do list for a while, but I've been putting it off because of all those fiddly dots (yes, they took ages). I love how it's come out - I'm so looking forward to grouping all these fabrics in a simple patchwork quilt.

Anyway, on to the contest... As I mentioned previously, I'm pretty rubbish at coming up with catchy names for my fabric repros, so I'm opening up the challenge. Come up with a name I love for any of my fabrics (especially the Deco Sprays design I posted the other day), and if I choose your suggestion I'll credit you in the description, and I'll also send you a Spoonflower fabric swatch.

  2. Ohhh love the cowboy fabric!

    For the cowboys I like "Buckin' Broncs" as they are bucking broncos.

    For the deco spray fabric, from what I have been able to research (being familiar with the original feedsack design) was that it was supposed to originally mimic sheaves of wheat and that this was a deco interpretation of it. For that reason I would suggest "A Bountiful Harvest" as a name for it.

    For the hanger fabric I like "Hung Up On You" or "I'm Hung up on You". It has a fun ring to it.

    Can't wait to see what designs you come up with next! I really love the holiday fabric you created recently! So pretty!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
