Fabric

 Do these seashell and seahorse images look familiar?  Yes, they are from my pattern Seashells and Seahorses


I adapted them to print on fabric, designed this layout and then had it printed through Spoonflower.  The concept of Spoonflower is such a wonderful one, to be able to design your own layout and then have it printed on the fabric and size of your choice.


I ordered mine in 100% Kona Cotton but Spoonflower has so many fabric choices, you can purchase this in cotton poplin or twill or even silk crepe de chine.


I am trying out some different trims, this white pom pom {pom pom trim is my favorite} looks really good:


It also might be fun to embroider over a few of the images.  It will depend on what I am going to make with this fabric. 


This was really a fun experience and I can't wait to try some more!
