I thought I'd try my hand at a Matisse-inspired print and I'm really pleased with the outcome! I wanted to give the feel of cut paper shapes and kept it really loose in style. I've included leaf shapes as well as circles and created a layered effect on a teal background.

I'm dreaming of summer days with these happy, sunny gift bags. These cotton drawstring bags come in a set of three different sizes. They are a great way of gifting something special and the best thing is that they are reusable too, so they become part of the gift.

It's not too late to order this rather fabulous red and white snowflake print from my Spoonflower shop! It's the prefect design for decorating a christmas table and comes in a selection of tableware such as napkins, placemats and tablecloths.

Last week's Spoonflower design completion was 'Funny Valentine' so I decided to create this fun love heart print. Can't wait to get it printed up and to make some cute little purses out of it.

Most people who know me know that I'm a cat lover and I couldn't resist making this cute little cotton cat pouch and cat glasses case combo. Each one is made from a quirky blue and white crowded cat design and has a matching blue and white polka dot lining.

The latest Spoonflower design challenge is called 'Delicious Ditsy' and I couldn't resist creating this sweet treats print for it. I'm a cake-lover and these tasty morsels, with their pink icing na cherry on top are irresistible. A ditsy pattern usually has two characteristics - tiny and with a multi directional layout, which makes the very easy to use on a wide variety of craft projects. This print would be great for using for an afternoon tea table cloth or napkins, or for making into an apron for the baker in your life.

I love the colour purple and this purple kimono fabric was calling out to me to be made into a clutch bag. It has a wonderful oversized chrysanthemum design woven into it and makes quite a statement. I've added a matching purple tassel to the zipper pull and given it a stunning burgundy satin lining for a contrasting colour when the bag is opened.
