Spoonflower Updates

Just thought I'd post an update to let you know that a whole bunch of my spoonflower fabrics are now available for purchase, including a few new ones which I haven't previously posted about.

One I've been working on in bits and pieces for months is my reproduction of "April" by Clayton Knight, part of the Stehli Silks Americana collection produced in the mid 20s. I've made it in dove grey, slate blue and olive green colourways. Although it dates from the 1920s, it would totally work for 30s, 40s or 50s - in fact any time up to and including now!


Another repro I've been working on for, oh, a year - I came across this zoo print skirt ages and ages ago and fell in love. My repro in the original colourway is available to purchase now, with green and blue background versions to follow.


Next is a silly poodles design that's partly repro and partly my own. It's inspired by a 1950s skirt I saw online (must have been on ebay, as a google image search doesn't turn anything up) and is available in sky blue and cornflower blue colourways.


Another silly design I couldn't resist reproducing was this bathtime bubbles feedsack.


This print of little girls sweeping is part of a series of household chores feedsack prints (the original feedsacks go for quite a lot of money on ebay) - others include ironing, hanging out laundry, washing the dishes and mending/darning.


Additionally, all the other designs I've recently posted about are now ready for purchase, including the Delivery Boys collection, Poolside in four different colourways, Betty Grable's Apple Cart and Key to my heart in three colours. And a whole lot more - so if you're looking for unique, vintage style fabric do take a look in my spoonflower shop.

  1. LOVE the rainbows and clouds! I am actually racking my brain for a project RIGHT NOW! :) I think it would make a delightful matching book bag (like those little Macey's bags) and neckerchief set (my sewing skills don't really go beyond bags and neat hems hehe).

  5. Of the Spoonflower fabrics they can produce on, do you have a favorite or favorites to sew with? You're creating just the most darling designs and I'm itching to sew something up! I may have to get a little sampler fabric pack.

    1. I've used the Kona cotton for record bags, and cotton poplin for my Ballroom Belles tea dress, and they're both nice quality fabrics. I've got a sample of the silk crepe de chine and it's lovely, I'd LOVE to make a dress with it, but it's a bit pricier than the rest so sadly I can't afford it at the moment :(

  6. Oh, the April one! I must come up with a project that requires that fabric. I've started inspecting novelty prints for designs that I like too.

  9. Your prints are so pretty !
    Will "Kitties on bicycles dotty - pink" go on sale ? I dream of having it printed on knit fabric to make a top. (ruffles at the sleeves and all)
    And I love "Flightpath" too, the colors are so very well chosen !

    1. Sure, I can make the pink kitties available for sale when I next purchase a round of swatch samples - your sewing plans for it sound so cute! I'm glad you like "Flightpath" - it's my entry for the upcoming Aviation weekly contest :)
