Lucky Lucille fabric is here!

I got my samples in the mail of the fabric I designed on Spoonflower and I really like the way they turned out! So much in fact that I’ve made them available online for purchase! Well, all except for the Lucille one for the time being. I’m going to keep that one exclusive to me for a little while. I can’t let my baby go just yet!

I wanted to create a print that was mostly solid with just a little something special to give it some depth. The look is very subtle but not totally plain. I can’t wait to order some of the tomato red in the organic cotton knit option to make a Renfrew! …or maybe a pea green Renfrew?! I love all of the colors actually!

I ordered my samples in the cheapest fabric option available which is the Basic Combed cotton. It has a great crispness to it, but it’s very sheer. It’s not a good choice for garments, but when I added some interfacing to make a zipper pouch, it turned out just fine!

The retro atomic print comes in two color ways and compliments some of the little stars prints. I think they’d make great aprons and bags!

I definitely plan to add many more collections to Spoonflower in the future. This was just my little project to get started! I’m finally putting all those years of messing around in Photoshop to use 🙂

I will be adding variants of the Lucille fabric to my Spoonflower shop in the future in case anyone wants her little furry technicolor face on a sewing project or two. She’s too cute! That’s why I’m hoarding her for myself for right now 😉




  • Fun!

  • I LOVE this! I wish i could sew, I’d make a fabric out of Cypress’s face and then a million dresses out of that fabric.

    They’re stunning! I’m in awe…

  • When it becomes available I will definitely buy some Lucille fabric. I’d love to make a dress! I love that atomic print too! I will definitely be ordering some of that in the future.

    • I’m definitely working on some more Lucille fabric to share with everyone 🙂 I’m glad you like it!

  • These are all gorgeous Rochelle! Bit jealous of your uber-talent 🙂 Sewing something with fabric that you designed yourself would have to be just about the ulimate!!

    • Aww, thank you! I’m pretty excited about it 🙂

  • Neeno – Sew Me Love

    I love Lucille!!!! She is so cute, don’t ever stop Ig-ing and blogging Lucille’s pics.
    And the fabric is super gorgeous 🙂

    • I will never ever stop posting photos of Lucille 🙂

  • Oh that Lucille fabric is too cute!! How does Spoonflower fabrics wash up? I’ve never ordered but I’ve been sorely tempted. I’d love to design some 40s-esque prints!

    • Thank you! I’ve purchased the basic combed cotton, the kona cotton, and the cotton linen canvas and I was surprised at how well the color held up. Of course, I’ve only washed them once so I’m not sure if the colors fade over time, but I’m very pleased with Spoonflower so far!

      • Hi Rochelle, I was wondering if I could ask your opinion on the Kona cotton…
        Does the color look the same on the Kona as it does on the Basic Combed? I ordered a fat quarter on the basic but, like you, found it to be thin.

        • Rochelle

          Yes, I think the color looks the same. The only difference is quality of fabric. The Kona is much nicer, like a true quilting weight.
