Dance of the Octopi fabric by Amy Crook

Dance of the Octopi fabric by Amy Crook

You may remember a while back I posted a design called Dance of the Octopi and contemplated how it would make good wallpaper or fabric pattern? Well, I’ve finally gotten around to putting it up on Spoonflower for sale! You can see my little sample above, which is a fat quarter of unironed quilting weight (I don’t own an iron, haha) gathered into a pretty swath for the photo.

I love the dreamy, blue and purple creatures and vibrant green seaweed against the soft blue background, and am still contemplating whether I want to get a few yards and try to sew myself a tentaclicious pair of pajama pants. I suppose I’d have to buy an iron, though…

    OMG I LOVE IT! I’m trying to think what I would want made out of it. Curtains? Pillows? Pajama pants also sound like an awesome idea. It’s just so fun. I’m keeping this in mind when I (hopefully) move soon!

      Thanks! They have all those different fabric weights, I’m not sure what else these funky sea creatures would make well — a horrible Hawaiian shirt, perhaps. 😉

      Actually, curtains would probably show off the pseudo-Victorian feel of the overall pattern really well. Possibilities!
