Studio | Sneak Peek

Last summer I started to play around with designing fabrics, which has always been a dream of mine. 
Life was a little hectic and busy and I put the project on the back burner for some time.
Well, I finally ordered my fabric samples and they are fabulous, better than I imagined.
The designs still need a little tweaking before I make them available for purchase,
but the possibilities are endless and I can't wait to develop this collection.

I'm inspired to reupholster a little bench that I have in my bedroom and I'm finding it's so hard to choose!
As I explore this new line, I thought I'd ask you, my dearest readers, do you have a favorite 
painting of mine that you would like to see as a fabric and what would you make with it?

so wonderful Holly. I like your ferns very much, the way you show the whole thing, tuber and all.
Your silouttes too, wouldn't they make an unusual fabric?

I would love to make a 50's style dress out of either the nest or bord print. These really are amazing Holly! Can you tell us where you had them printed? x

Thank you! I will let you all know as soon as the fabric is available for sale. The fabric is printed by Spoonflower.

It's hard to pick one, but the feather your nest No. 39 is my favorite. I would make drapes, re-upholster a bench or slipcover a ottoman. I can imagine all of these is my 1st grandchild room. (due this July)

Your black swan or wild hare would make great pillow covers.

holly aka golly said...
