I've been toying with some interior decor projects recently - because there's nothing like staring at the same four walls for a couple of weeks to make you want to redecorate!
With these projects (and a few others) in mind and with the magical power of wireless internet I have been doing lots of window shopping for fabric.
There's an increasingly amazing choice of hand printed and/or independently designed fabrics available (thanks in part to the rise of Spoonflower) , and many of my favourite makers have recently branched out into selling their own fabrics.
Betz White this week launched her organic fabric line, with the drop dead gorgeous "family cottage" collection:
Leanne Graeff is now selling delicious fabric based on her linoprints, including this super-cute house design:
Showpony also now offers fabric, handprinted onto organic, fair trade cotton. The "seasons" print (pictured) is available in summer and winter versions, with leafy trees and bare ones. Lovely!
Queen of the Teatowels (in my kitchen, at least!) Skinny Laminx now offers her "Sevilla Rock" collection by the quarter, half or full metre:
Michelle of Cicada Studio (whose "earthly delights" collection is currently top of my new-sofa-cushions-fabric wishlist) recently co-launched Cloud 9 Fabrics, a sweet range of organic cottons perfect for quilters and other crafters:
Browsing for fabrics I've also been very tempted by the "doiliez" pattern from Swanky Swell...
... this "birch forest" design from Ink and Spindle (guess who has a thing for robins egg blue at the moment!) ... ... these charming scrap fabric packs from Of Paper and Thread (perfect for small crafty projects) ...... and having seen the work-in-progress over on her blog, I'm very much looking forward to the new design from the always awesome Lucie of Summersville: So much to choose from! Which is your favourite? :)
