Have you ever wondered how designers in the Spoonflower community create the adorable cut-and-sew projects you’ve been eyeing in the Marketplace? From the purrrfect zipper pouch (see the how-to here) to a giftable hedgehog plushie, the only limit to creating your very own cut-and-sew project is your imagination. To help you get started, Spoonflower designer Ceri Staziker–cerigwen in the Marketplace–is sharing seven design tips for successfully creating a cut-and-sew project. By the time you’re done, you’ll never underestimate the power of a fat quarter!
Our newest fabric, Chiffon, is making its center stage DIY debut today with the help of longtime blog contributor and talented designer, Ceri Staziker (aka Cerigwen). This blousy and ultra-sheer fabric is a dream for projects that require a material with a light touch and beautiful drape. Today, follow along as Ceri shows how to sew this gorgeous ballet wrap skirt in our new Chiffon using her free PDF pattern. For Ceri’s daughter (and maybe even you!), when its time to hit the dance floor, she’ll be twirling in style thanks to her custom Chiffon ballet wrap skirt for under $25.
We are in the home stretch of this year's Fabric8 Contest! Over the past few weeks, our 8 finalists have been busily working on their botanical sketchbook-inspired collections for a shot at signing with Moda Fabrics, and we've been getting to know each of them a bit more in a series of interviews (head here to see them all!). To close out the series, we're catching up with Ceri Staziker (Cerigwen on Spoonflower), the Fabric8 veteran behind the beautiful Edith's Garden entry.
CERI: I’m a home bird — born and brought up in Wales. Even though I love travelling and have lived abroad, I’m happiest here in this beautiful little country with its rugged coastline and mountainous scenery. I live with my husband and ten-year-old daughter in a rural village just outside our capital city of Cardiff. I get the best of both worlds!
