Here are the 2 latest fabrics of mine I ordered from Spoonflower- the afternoon light wasn't great when I took this shot but you get the idea. As usual they have done a very nice quality job of the print and the fabric is also a lovely quality, but the colours are just little off. It's a very tricky thing to get right when everybody's computer colour calibration is different...but I'm pretty happy!

Proper print revival...maybe?

Love this frock by Alexander McQueen, how nice to see some inspired and good print design again after what feels like aeons and aeons of ugly 80's reruns.I never liked that hideous "Memphis" style the first time round, and enduring generation Y's love affair with the 80's has been very painful. It hurt..please let it be over now.

Spoonflower and Handmade in Melbourne

I was delighted to see one of my fabric designs was in the Spoonflower "Fabric of the week" competition last week- I didn't win, but it was nice to be there none the less. Also just found out I have been picked to go into the new "Handmade in Melbourne" book that comes out in August.Yay!
This image by Matt Jones from 20x200 seemed appropriate...

Also, how gorgeous are these new delights from the lovely Mel Robson?
