Sample abstract Patterns
Some of my favorite fabrics are abstract outdoor patterns that I can live with indoors.
After I’ve purchased and tested each fabric pattern I will link the image to a Spoonflower.com page where you are welcome to purchase it by the yard in their wide selection of fabrics.
Acorn Drop in Water for a Tablecloth
I dropped an acorn into the pond and this tablecloth captures the concentric waves forever. The napkins are images of pond inhabitants who surf the waves as the table is set.
A Twinkle of Periwinkles
Perhaps I have the most fun using natural patterns for clothing for grandchildren:
Oak Leaf Skirt
This skirt reminds me of the wonderful color of oak leaves in November.
A fabric designed by paper wasps
The wasps didn’t weave the pattern, but they designed the basic block.
Fabrics fore a wonderful wedding
The trees birds, flowers and butterflies that we love at the pond covered outfits for the bride, the groom and the flower girl.
The groom wore a birch bark shirt, trimmed with strands of grape leaves.
The bride’s dress, with an echo of the birch bark featured birds on the front and the back and included a wrap colored with the grape leaves.
And the flower girl, who loves bugs as well as pretty dresses, wore butterflies and a hidden chipmunk.
