My Spoonflower order arrived yesterday but I realised I mucked it up!! I’m so annoyed at myself. After getting the test swatch I decided that I wanted the sunflowers a bit smaller so that I don’t end up with just one on the bag, but I must have got my numbers back-to-front because I made them bigger! So I’ve had to order another yard of the sunflower print for the outside of the bag. Unfortunately, this means that I won’t be sewing my bag up any time soon and we will all have to wait just a bit longer to see the finished result. Boooooo!!!
The fabric does however, look fantastic! The sunflowers are big and bright and really look amazing.
I’m planning to make a Big Tote Bag with the extra yard I have. The huge sunflowers will work great on the bag.
The scribbles print also came up great and the cotton-silk looks so gorgeous in yardage. I also ordered a yard of the scribbles in Kona for no particular reason, but now I can use it for the inside of The Big Tote Bag! Interestingly, the shades of blue come out a lot more in the cotton-silk, but the yellows come out a lot more in the Kona.
