Ample Samples

Ooh excitement - for the first time today I got to see fabric samples of my new designs! I'm really happy with how the colours turned out - it can be quite a challenge matching colours using my swatchbook, and then hoping they'll turn out how I planned, especially when the base fabric isn't white.






This last one looks a bit brighter & higher contrast here than it does in real life. The base fabric is a darkish "mushroom" colour (thanks Shannon :P) with a rusty red on top.

I hope to have these three in the shop in about two weeks - yay.

Ooo, which ones aren't on white, just the bottom one? White looks ghastly on me, so I don't buy white-based fabric, just in case I want clothes ;)
