I decided at some point that it would be neat to have some polka-dot crows fabric in my Scribble Goth line, and I finally got around to doodling up some crows with a fountain pen, and then turning them into a pattern. The basic four birds can be seen above, and below there’s the two fabric designs. They’re not for sale yet (I have to buy a $5 test swatch of each before they can be), so if you’re interested in having some crows of your own, just let me know!
I think my favorite part is how 3 of them are looking right, but one crow is like “no, the interesting stuff is over here.”

If you’re a fan of Sherlock on the BBC and enjoy my Baker Street Tinies, then I have a fabric design for you — Sherlock Flock! I took the tiny-pen-rendered wallpaper from B is for Baker Street, interior, and used my mad Photoshop skillz to create a repeating pattern, then uploaded it to Spoonflower at rather a larger size than the original. You can put it on a skirt, pillow, purse or have a hanky made, whatever your heart desires!
Sherlock Flock, digital pattern for fabric, available at Spoonflower.
My sample swatch came and I may have made a squeaky noise at how cool it was to have and to hold. No idea what I’ll do with it, but here it is in silk crepe de chine:

Friday is for fabric! At least this one is. I’ve created a line of fabrics over at Spoonflower called Scribble Goth, made up of scribbly skulls, spikey stripes and even one lone ditzy print of teeny tiny bones.
I haven’t made all of these designs available for purchase yet, because there’s a small but significant cost associated with doing so (it adds up!). If you’d like to buy one of these fabrics for your own projects, just let me know (comment here! contact there! email! twitter! whatever works for you, really) and I’ll buy a swatch for myself so you can get sewing. I’m even willing to make other colorways, if you’d like a blood red skirt or some Halloween orange pajamas.
I’ve also made a version of the above border that’s got the rest of the fabric covered in the polka dots below.
I’ve got a trio of stripes using the spikey cross from the border, though I only put two of them in the post.
And my favorite of all the patterns, a different sort of polka dot with the skulls arranged in florets.

Dance of the Octopi – Fabric!
Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011
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…
