A Winning Formula

1. Take a much-loved children's book
2. Print it onto good thick cotton
= and you get something truly
wonderous:
Oh I don't believe I've ever spent so much for two and half metres of fabric but it was irresistible. I went into a quilting store to get a ring and needles (see previous post) and came out with loads of bright fabric! The tricky thing is deciding what to use it for; it'd make a wonderful feature for an apron, bag, quilt, or even as a panel or two on a skirt - but for now I'll just wear it as is!

Thanks to ingenious inventions like Spoonflower it now possible to get almost anything on fabric - I am yet to explore getting some of my own illustrations custom made into fabric but I'd definitely love to - there is something so special about it having fabric of your own. It'd also be great to do your own fabric printing too - while lino printing is great fun I've been given a book on printing fabric using dyes, wax, flowers and other fascinating things I'd like to try.

But tell me what wonderful things/designs/illustrations you'd like to see on fabric? Or even if you've already gone about doing your own!
