Lucky Lucille fabric is here!

November 10, 2012

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 😉
