Needlecases in Spring Fabrics

I have another stack of fabric samples to play with. I love sewing with fabrics that I designed. If you haven't tried Spoonflower I recommend it, so fun! I used my "Blue Roses and Berries" fabric for this needlecase. I put a little strip of pink ribbon and used a decorative stitch to sew it on. The inside has a couple pockets and a piece of wool felt for sharp things.


I liked the dusty pink shade that printed on this one so I called it "Dusty Pink Rose". Sometimes it is difficult to tell what the color will end up when it is printed. The ink drawing turned out nice and crisp and I was happy about that. I added a little lace trim to this one. It is the same on the inside as the one described above.



This fabric is very bright and cheerful with watercolor flowers. I called it "Spring Flower Garden" and it has little dragonflies buzzing about. A very loose wet-in-wet techinque so the colors blended in an interesting way and printed on the fabric very vibrant.




I like to participate in the weekly fabric design contests on Spoonflower and this was my entry for the "Cameos" contest. I called it "Cameos in Pink" and blended a little flower drawing with some watercolor and added some other swirls and flowers. The Spoonflower folks pick subjects I wouldn't think of myself so I like the challenge to see what I can come up with. I love looking at all the contest entries, so much talent out there. Stop by and see sometime, here's the link for the Spoonflower contest
