Macaroni Love Story: Available Now, Only at Spoonflower

I am so pleased to announce my newest line of printed fabrics, Macaroni Love Story. Macaroni Love Story will only be available at Spoonflower, and only for a limited time. And if you get over there soon you can sign up for a drawing to win the whole collection.

One of my favorite things about Spoonflower is that you can order designs (your own, mine, and lots of others) to be printed on a wide variety of fabrics, including the lovely linen swatched below. The lawn and the linen happen to be my favorites, but you can order a set of swatches and see them all. There is also a nice soft spongey jersey that happens to be organic, and a lovely sateen that would be perfect for a back to school dress. Most fabrics are 54-58" wide (the least expensive, option, a quilting weight cotton, is 44" wide), which goes quite a long way when you're making stuff for babies and kids.

This collection includes two colorways, aqua and sunset. Here is AQUA:

Its not a coincidence that these colorways are similar to those that I used in Far Far Away and Far Far Away II. They both, emply orange, of course. As my husband says, orange is the color that goes with everything but rhymes with nothing.

Here's SUNSET:

I found that the link didn't work at all - just to a "page not found" page on spoonflower.com.

These are so cute I'm already dreaming up projects. :-)

Hmmm... and what's this about winning the collection?

I love love love it so much, but just can't work it into the budget. Spoonflower is fantastic, but I just can't afford fabric at their prices. It's difficult enough for me to justify the Kokka's $16 a yard price to my husband. Sooooo sad :(
Love it (and you!) nonetheless!

Such fun prints and colors! My favorite right now is the ojo de dios fabric... I'm dreaming of a lovely top in the Sunset colorway.

Love the aqua colorway. Laughing at your husband's statement on orange, my dad used to say the same thing. He claimed it was the only piece of knowledge he retained from elementary school.

Just ordered some Newspaper Boats in Aqua on linen/cotton. I've been waiting for those boats-you just have no idea. They remind me of my son! I have become RICH with newspaper boats and hats and planes over the years. And two asides: So, um, are the Honey Bears under your bed as well? And I think some sort of Vermin Couture line may be in order.

Hi Heather,

Just came across your fabrics on Spoonflower and they are really lovely! So cute & fun. I am doing an all handmade Christmas this year and I'm thinking your fabrics could be perfect for a gift project or two!

Love the colours and the gorgeous simplicity of your new designs - LOVE LOVE LOVE!! By the way, my 8 year old daughter thought of a word that rhymes with orange - lozenge! Childhood is obviously where it's at.

Dear Heather,

A funny coincidence just happened. I was looking through the Inchmark archives and saw a post from 2008 where Brooked linked to a post you'd written (also in 2008) about your creative process and clothespin people. So I read it and was enchanted, and then I hit the "Home" button to see what your latest posts are about, and I see clothespin people again.

I loved those prairie clothespin people, and I love these more modern clothespin people I see up top here. I love them all. :)

I know there is more to you than clothespin people, but this is a fun first impression.

Please please PLEASE make "Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries - Mushrooms" available on spoonflower. I didn't become aware of the fabric until it was already out of print - and I love mushrooms! Please?!?!

ohmygoodness, they're GORGEOUS! i love the sunset colourway, and especially the newspaper boats on the pink. so beautiful! i'm crossing my fingers that "a limited time" will still include payday!
