“Space Forest” Tee Photoshoot!

I’ve been working on some sewing projects using my fabric designs recently and am so excited to share images from a photoshoot by the wonderful Teri G.! You can check out her fabulous portfolio here. I basically had the cutest model ever, wouldn’t you agree?

My wonderful model is wearing a long-sleeved organic cotton jersey tee in my “Space Forest” fabric. I created the tee with indie sewing pattern company Made by Rae’s “Flashback Skinny Tee” pattern. It was my first time sewing with a Made by Rae pattern and I would definitely recommend this one – easy to use and totally adorable 🙂 This was such a fun project, and I love getting to see my designs being worn in real life! ❤

Perfectly Notional – Textile Design Collection

I have created a collection of 4 coordinate surface patterns called “Perfectly Notional” for the Spoonflower fabric design competition this week. This week Spoonflower is collaborating with Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine for the theme of sewing notions, objects that I am well acquainted with having come from a long line of proud sewists! Designers were to create a 4 pattern collection that would fit on a yard of fabric. Below you can see my individual designs from the collection to better view the detail – Buttons, Thread, Scissors, Needles.
