Sometimes I make a new fabric design from the embers of some old designs and that's what I did last week when I created an American style folk fabric.
A few years ago I designed some Amish people cut & sew kits which I think I only sold one of, the idea was to make a family group and string them like bunting.
I took some of the design elements from the kits and worked out a pattern repeat and then picked a selection of muted colours for the range and these are my results.
I've already had some cotton samples back from print which I'm quite pleased with and I think this one will be nice for kitchen textiles, aprons, patchwork etc.
Another design just finished is a mish mash of lots of other elements, butterflies, embroidered flowers, vintage postage stamps. birds. I'm thinking Hawaiian shirts with this, maybe because the sun is shining on me today!
