Umbrella Prints- Patchwork Fabric #1


Sometime this week I will be trying to take better photos of these fabrics in anticipation of finally releasing them onto the internet (at Umbrella Prints and on Etsy).

Carly and I have spent a while happily grappling with a name for our collaborative conglomerate (eek!) of patterns on hemp/cotton fabric. In the end we have decided upon Umbrella Prints- Patchwork Fabric #1!

Over the next couple of weeks I would like to talk more about the 6 designs of mine within this patchwork- what they are called, how the designs came about and what they mean to me.
I will put up a little note when the fabric is up for sale for those who are interested. The colours are starfruit green, red kimono, sumi black and pink moon.

zzzzzzzz :-)

Wow! Thanks Julie! We are pretty excited about this being a staple of our range- a patchwork fabric for those who don't want to patch!

Ooh, these are wonderful! I work as an artsworker for the cerebral palsy league, and I do a lot of textiles printing with the clients, so I'm really looking forward to hearing more about them in case there's any new tips or tricks I can adapt for them!
Just beautiful, keep us posted!!

I love your prints of abnormal animals. I still use that bag with the red handle for my library books.
