Ahoy Matey! Fabric

Super-psyched about this!  I was a pattern designer for over six years, before I quit my day job to do my illustration work full-time, and I used to really enjoy making patterns.  As with most things, I got a little burned out from doing that (and thus quit my job), so it has taken awhile to get back into making them.  I've slowly been doing some patterns for fun, and this is the first one I have had actual yardage printed. Exciting!  It is available in fat quarters (17"x 21") in my Etsy shop, or as yardage through Spoonflower

  • Quilting Weight Cotton, digitally printed via
  • 100% Cotton Fabric
  • 17" X 21" Fat Quarter
  • Estimated Shrinkage 3%
  • Wash on delicate setting, cool, using phosphate-free detergent
I have some questions for you!  Do you ever buy fabric through Spoonflower?  Do you like to purchase fabric as fat quarters or yardage?  I know Spoonflower fabric is expensive, but I'd like to give the option for both.  Any particular kind of patterns you would like to see?  What do you usually make with your fabric?

Thanks for your help!


  1. Wow, so cute! Absolutely love the design! I've never bought fabric from Spoonflower, I can't be trusted to buy fabric since I go and buy it then never know what to do with it... but I don't think I'll be able to resist this!

  2. Love it! I sooo love spoonflower, and made some fabric a couple of months back and have yet to make the dress i has planned to. you inspire me to get it out and start working!
