Fabric Design

In honor of our upcoming Craft & Wine Night, when we will be designing our own fabric, I wanted to share some of my favorite conception de tissu. (Yes, that's French, get with the program folks - I'm going to Africa!)

I really enjoy the bright red and nature motif of this design - its organic-in-your-face  cubicle refugee


I think this is probably my favorite fabric right now - its also got an "earthy" vibe with its handpainted strokes - I am in awe of Jenny at Wiksten - she has an eye for this stuff. wikstenmade

Hand- drawn fauna - very sweet and simple. Bethan Janine

Wow, will someone please teach me how to do this? Sierra Leone Heritage


I really enjoy the simple prints - I think I'll try my hand at the blue birds for Craft and Wine Night. If She Sleeps

The rustic/ethnic prints get me too - they make me ask questions and wonder about the history of their threads/patterns.  Do they have meaning? Where did they come from? Moods of the Moon
