This is for real


I'll try my best not to choke you with punctuation, but it's hard because.... I designed my first fabric! Do you see how giant these "selvage" dots are? Some are almost an inch across!


I thoroughly examined my collection of selvages to try and insert all sorts of charming quirky details. I had a yard of it printed at Spoonflower. Now, do I make crazy lots of stuff with it or just admire it in this state forever?


I feel so happy seeing it. I made it on the iPad one sleepless night, inspired by Suzanne's comment on this post about "selvages on steroids".

I think I'd like the print on a smaller scale too so I'm going to resize it and print some of that on Spoonflower as well. This first one is already on sale here if you love selvages too!
