Key to My Heart Fabric

I've been laid up in bed all day feeling under the weather, so I took the opportunity to do a bit of work on some more fabric designs. This one is sort of intended as a companion print to my Ballroom Belles fabric. It is loosely based on a 1940s novelty print dress I saw online, but the available swatch was very small so this is largely my own creation (except for some of the keys - see if you can tell which are my design and which are from the original!).

The version above is the design as I envisaged it. One of the nifty tools on spoonflower is the colour changer - it's so cool to see the overall effect change as you play with the colours. I decided to go a little wild with the colourways - chartreuse was such a popular colour in the 40s, so I thought I'd pay tribute to that.

Chartreuse and salmon - not for the faint of heart!

As ever, these will join my other prints in my spoonflower shop as soon as I've verified the print colours. It would look awesome on their silk crepe-de-chine, don't you think?


  1. How wonderfully lovely and playful! I'm always drawn to things featuring images of keys and just adore this delightful pattern.
