A few weeks back, I had a flood of messages on Spoonflower asking about different colorways for my Wonky Woodgrain Fabrics. It seems like faux wood grain is the new thing for nurseries. How neat!?
I read each and every request and made up new colorways, or made some of the designs horizontal instead (for crib skirts and things like that I was told). I had to order a swatch for all of them so there was some waiting involved.
Today all of the swatches came in and I am in love with them all! A bunch were requests and then the tan, mustard and pink were my idea because I know I’d use them myself (baby quilt backs anyone?)
I also had a few swatches made of my Brushed X’s fabric design. I designed this specifically to be used as quilt binding and backing. I have grand plans for this fabric! (I wish I had photographed them better though! Stupid cloudy days)
What are your thoughts on all of these? Should I make more colorways? Smaller designs? Larger designs? ETC ETC ETC? I NEED to know! haha.
Today Spoonflower announced that they would now be offering both custom wallpaper AND wall decals! How cool is that?!? I was asked awhile back to be a beta tester, and I’ve been keeping this secret for over a year! I’m so excited to finally share a few of the pieces I worked on. Today I will share some of my own favorites.
The Wonky Woodgrain above I actually created specifically for wallpaper, I really wanted the dark gray for my dining room. I ordered the swatch and was about to order the 8 huge rolls needed to do it, but then I changed my mind. I ended up painting the walls the same color, just no squiggly woodgrain lines. I’m still trying to find a place in my house for this paper… maybe as an accent wall? or in my soon to be new sewing room? I’ll figure it out.
I’ve also made it so most of my other fabric designs can be used as wallpaper too. Not all of them worked well, and I tweaked some to make sure the pattern wasn’t too big or too small. I’m really happy with the way they all came out. Oh and now you can also purchase monster decals and growth charts to go with the fabric!!
I also created an alphabet wall decal set that coordinates with most of my girl themed monster fabrics. I actually ordered a set for CT’s room that I will show once we finish painting her room. (and that won’t be until we have a free weekend!!) Each letter is around 8″ tall. and can be cut out and configured anyway you like. The decals feel a lot like fabric is don’t rip easily, Oh and they can re-positioned numerous times! I’ve been testing them!
As you can tell from this post, I’m super excited! I just wish I had more time in the day to do all the projects I want to do. I would seriously make so many things out of wallpaper.
Is anyone going to try out Spoonflower’s new wallpaper or decals? Have you already tried? I’d love to see!!
