Cricket Bugs Watercolor Fabric and Redwork Rabbit

Some fun bug fabric this week from my Spoonflower collection called "Crickets" ~ great for Halloween!  

September Morning Glory from my birth month flower series is now available in my Artfire shop.  All of the designs are the same size so they can be easily finished with framing or sewing. 
And October Marigold with soft golden autumn shades with some pink, orange and purple.

My daughter is off to college now and I found this redwork embroidery pillow that she made when she was in kindergarten.  Think I'll keep this one around.  Have a great Halloween weekend!

Redwork Holly Coasters, Yoga Shorts and Vegetable Fabric

A set of redwork holly coasters on hand dyed linen fabric in the color of a warm coffee drink accented with a sage green ribbon.  I used hand dyed red flosses for the nice color variations.  You can find them here in my Etsy Shop    

Since it's getting closer to the end of the year, I've wanted to finish up some projects I started earlier.  I took the Craftsy class Sewing with Knits and loved it.  I made a t-shirt, a hoodie and these yoga shorts.  I love their classes and they are lifetime classes so you can take a break and come back later to make more items.      

Here's another bundle of my Spoonflower fabric samples with coordinating colors.  Their printing technology is really nice.  The colors, patterns and watercolor variations print out wonderfully.   

This fabric is called "Green Veggies" and has pen and ink with watercolor for the illustrations.  Prints nice and bright. 

This fabric is called "Blue Stripes" and the sample is of the Spoonflower performance pique fabric.  It is wonderful for summer sportswear.  It's a nice stretchy knit.

Christmas Tree Coasters and Holiday Stockings

Thinking of Christmas gifts and things that might be nice for gift exchanges at work or within crafting groups, I made some hand embroidered coasters with little primitive trees.  They were fun to make and I liked the French knots on the trees ~ they're one of my favorite stitches.  You can find them here in my Etsy shop.       

I've also made a stocking pattern with several patterns that can be embroidered on the cuff.  There are several snowman patterns, cardinal and a tea set.  These are a nice size for filling with fun things to give to friends and special people in your life for the holidays.  You can find the pattern in my Artfire Shop

This is a collection of Spoonflower fabric samples that have been printed on some of their other styles of fabric including the faux suede, performance knit and the silky faille.  

This sample of the dots is printed on the faux suede and it prints beautifully with lively color and captures the watercolor paint variations nicely.  The fabric is so soft.  This fabric is called "Blue Wash Dots" and you click on this link to view it
