It’s been something playing in the back of my mind for a while, to have a go at designing my own fabric. And recently I had a very clear picture in my head of a project to make, and I knew exactly the fabric I wanted. But of course I couldn’t find it, so I put pen to paper, mouse to screen, and soon created my very first fabric collection – Dream Cake by LittleWhiteDove. I received the samples back this week, and am beyond excited to see MY designs in print! I’ve even taken a chance and submitted the cupcake one to a hand-drawn fabric contest.
The range centres around two central prints – a cupcake at around 3/4″, and a small co-ordinating cloud print, at 3/8″x1/4″. The range is then fleshed out with co-ordinating basics in red, grey, and aqua, with a “fancy basic” double stripe. I have another THREE collections in mind, I just need to find time to sit and create them!
So, without further ado, I introduce “Dream Cake”
For now, the collection is available here as yardage, and I hope to soon have a little storefront up and running to offer precuts.
My mind today has been filled with fabric designs and beads, as I work on some new collections, and a bracelet commissioned by a friend for mothers day. Somehow the day has slipped away without any real amount of crafting occuring, but I caught up with good friends, cuddled my baby and hung out with my dad for a bit, plus of course the usual mum’s taxi duties! The night is closing in already, and promises to be another chilly one, so I hope to get three small people into bed early, and then get busy in the studio. Tomorrow will be a home day, and there is a dolls quilt cut ready to sew, so I’ll likely be rocking the studio with some Wiggles and a small boy. Tuesday’s done, Wednesday is knocking. A new day, a new start on the to-do list. Maybe.
