new halloween fabric from spoonflower
A few years ago, I designed some fabric for a Spoonflower Halloween contest. It didn't place in the top 10, and I just wasn't sure if I needed any for myself, so the designs sat in waiting. This year, on a whim, I started looking at them again, making some changes, and thinking I needed to print a swatch. But I couldn't decide between the yellow or the purple background.
I went to Twitter, and the response was mixed, with enough people saying "BOTH!" that I went for both. And then something happened and I did a bunch of other designs. My printed samples arrived last night, and I'm so very happy with them. Take a look at the collection on Spoonflower (now available for purchase!) and scroll through the photos that I snapped as soon as I had light this morning!
That white candy corn swatch is one of my favorites. But then there's these panels. A fat quarter includes the four characters ready to be sewn into little pillow plush!
And if little pillow plush are cute, big pillows suitable for your Halloween home decorating are even better, right? For these, you need to buy a full yard, which will make four pillows, each about 13 inches tall!
I can't wait to stitch up a set! As soon as I do, you'll be sure to see them here. If you want to make something for Halloween, now's the time to order, since it can take up to 2 weeks for freshly printed fabric to arrive from Spoonflower. But totally worth the wait!
By the way, I call them Jordnöts, because that's Swedish for peanuts (with a strange plurality for my Swedish-speaking friends...I'm going for cute here!), and they are peanut shaped characters. I love 'em!
