Club Tropicana - fabric swatches have arrived - yey!

I got my hands on some Club Tropicana ACTUAL fabric last week. Dashwood Studio's kindly sent me some sample swatches - yey! I think this is my favourite print in the range. I'd like a simple top in this fabric, will have to get my sewing machine out. I LOVE green so much (used to hate it as my school uniform was green but enough years have passed to forget the bogey green-ness of school days). Thanks Dashwood, my designs look so fab on fabric - really pleased.

Phoenix Cards

Copyright Stephanie Thannhauser for Phoenix Cards























I'm not really a sports car sort of person, I would prefer to spend the money on a holiday to be honest. However, if you know someone who likes flash cars then you might like to buy them this card. I designed it for Phoenix Cards and it's in their range at the moment. You can see it and buy it here.

Joseph Frank

























I loved the Joseph Frank exhibition at The Fashion and Textiles Museum in London. Big prints, gorgeous colours and fabulously presented. Inspirational! It finishes soon though so get a wriggle on if you want to see it : )

Wrestling!

























I don't physically wrestle (my Nanna Mag loved watching actual wrestling on the telly and I remember as a kid being fascinated by her punching the air shouting at the television "GET 'IM, GET 'HIM!"). In fact, I don't like any sort of aggression but crikey sometimes when you are creating a piece of work it feels like you are in a fight, trying to tame it, looking for it's weak points and trying to get it under control. Knowing when to give up and being able to move on from that so called "failure" and start again can be difficult too. First world problems and all that, but if you are creative you'll know what I mean : )

Club Tropicana strike offs - hurrah!
























The strike offs are in. I created this range for Dashwood Studios last year and seeing the designs on fabric is ace. Whilst designing this I couldn't stop singing the Wham song. I've often got a song in my head related to the work I'm working on. Sometimes it can be an ear worm that just won't go until I move onto something else. Club Tropicana will be in the shops in Spring/summer 2017 can wait to get my hands on some fabric myself : )
