Mix and match

 I love it when items match in my shop. This wasn't planned but I love the fact that this clutch bag and coin purse go together so well.

The clutch bag is made from a print I designed for my Spoonflower shop and I had it printed onto a satin fabric and then I made it up into a clutch bag with a green tassel detail.

The bag has a green taffeta lining that matches the green of the grasses on the outer print. I've also used the same green tassel as decoration.

This wild grasses print can be bought by-the-metre in my Spoonflower shop or bought as ready-made items such as bedding and home furnishing.

The coin purse is made from a yellow/green cotton leaf print and is perfect for storing small change in.

Alternatively use this cutie to store earphones or AirPods in. The purse is lightly padded.

Feeling foxy

 We are feeling foxy today with this rather fabulous cotton pouch. It's made from a fabric I designed for my Spoonflower shop and is the perfect size for makeup or toiletries.

The foxes are surrounded by a variety of woodland foliage in shades of green and teal.

This purse is a great size for a handbag organiser or travel bag.

The bag is fully lined and has a zipper closure to keep eveything secure inside.

Panda print

 This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is called Comeback Species and is celebrating the fact that many supposedly extinct species have made a comeback with the help of conservation efforts. I chose to create a design using the giant panda. I've created pandas in varying poses on a green background, surrounded by bamboo and I've also tried them on a blue background and a pink background which can all be found in my Spoonflower shop. Which one is your favourite?!

Baby Safari

I designed this group called Baby Safari for Makower UK a while ago and I'm loving it! Cute folk-inspired safari animals come in a colour palette of turquoise, grey, green and pink. Choose from a mixture of allover animal prints in a variety of scales or opt for just the cute elephants on their own. There is also a selection of non-animal prints such as florals and triangles which make a nice complimentary print. These are great for using as decoration for a nursery or child's bedroom. Alternatively they would make great prints for children's clothes.

Victorian greenhouses

This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is called Victorian Greenhouse and I had a lot of fun designing the ornate greenhouse shapes and then filling them with luscious plants.

Victorian green houses are traditionally ornate in style and made from wrought iron and glass. I loved adding swirls and curlicues to the design.

Tonal palm leaves sit in the background to add depth to the design.

I used plants from my pot plant design so that they compliment each other.

Orange delight

 Orange is such a happy colour and I'm in love with this orange scarf, made from two vintage kimono fabrics pieced together. I chose a colour palette of pink and orange and wanted to match the orange of the kimono with the fan motif on the pink kimono.

This silk scarf is double sided and makes a great addition to any outfit.

I love the injection of green on the maple leaves that rest on the orange fan motif.

This scarf can be wrapped once around the neck or it could be tied in a big bow for wow factor. The perfect gift for someone special.

Quirky amphibians

I recently designed this fun amphibians print for my Spoonflower shop. Frogs and toads sit alongside newts and salamanders in a fun colour palette of orange, green, teal and grey.

This print would make a great cushion cover for a kid's playroom.

Are you brave enough to have it on your bedding?! If so, this sheet set is perfect.

A whale of a time!

We're having a whale of a time at Cheeky Leopard! Loving this happy print. Blue whales sit on a beige linen canvas background. The perfect gift for a whale lover.

This cotton pouch is lined with a blue and white polka dot cotton and is perfect for using as a pencil case.

Alternatively, use it as a handbag organiser. It's great for keeping everything in one place and big enough to fit sunglasses, phone, keys and makeup.

Each whale has a smiling face.


Mid-Century modern florals

 One of the recent Spoonflower Design Challenges was to design a print using three colours from their cotton solids range - navy, fog and desert sun. I had a lot of fun designing a floral print for this challenge, inspired by mid-century modern florals.

The print looks great on a cushion cover that can be bought in my Spoonflower shop.

I liked the print so much I decided to try it in another colour palette using pink, blue and mustard with a hint of green.

This would look great on a duvet cover.

I used the same colour palette but tried it on a cream background.

It looks great as a minky throw, perfect for keeping warm and smart on long winter nights.

Leopard cosmetic bag

 Who could resist this fabulous leopard cosmetic bag?! It's made from a blue and pink leopard fabric and is the perfect gift for the leopard-lover in your life.

The bag is lightly padded and has a zipper closure to keep everything safe. Use it as a handbag organiser, gadget pouch or cosmetic bag.

Look up close and you can see the cheeky expressions on the leopard's faces.

Hot pink is my favourite colour and I love that pop of colour when the bag is opened.

Christmas gift bags

 It's never too early to start thinking of Christmas! I've already been adding a selection of Christmas gift bags to my store. Each set comes with three drawstring bags in a variety of sizes which are perfect for gifting toiletries, perfume or jewellery.

This gift bag set is made from red and white Christmas Scandi fabrics, each with a red ribbon drawstring.

The largest bag is made from a red and white star print and is the perfect size for toiletries or cosmetics.

Because this bag is made from cotton it can be reused as a storage bag for makeup etc. Very handy for taking on holiday in your suitcase. 

I love the red and white reindeer fabric used on the medium gift bag.

It's the perfect size for perfume and makes a lovely addition to a gift.

The smallest gift bag is so sweet and is perfect for gifting jewellery.

These gift bags also make a nice gift on their own.
