New Heather Ross Prints on Spoonflower

Heather Ross illustrated a sweet kid’s book called Crafty Chloe, written by Kelly DiPuccio. It’s about a girl who decides to make a present for her best friend despite naysaying from her other friends. Heather made another shop on the Martha Stewart Show to promote the book and demonstrate a project, and just like last [...]

New From Umbrella Prints

Umbrella Prints has a new design, Patchwork II, available now in their shop (Etsy — U.S. dollars) (Big Cartel — AU dollars). It’s handprinted onto a 55% hemp/45% cotton basecloth.

Daily Swatch: Cheater Prints

Half-square triangle cheater print, part of my collection. I really like the motifs in this one, maybe not the colors so much though. I keep typing “cheather” instead of cheater. Pray tell why? Do you have recurring typos like that? I knew a local politics writer who liked country music so he always accidentally typed [...]

Daily Swatch: Cheater Prints

Here are two shots of a c.1950s cheater print at Antique Fabric. I just adore all these plaids and checks together. It’s 36″ wide fabric, $14/yard, 2 available.
