shopgibberish says: Oh my...how I love, love, love this fabric. I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes (a lot) I fall in love with fabric in the store, but by the time I'm done with the challenges of sewing, my love for the fabric has diminished a bit. Not with this. I think I love it even more now! This might just be "first day of school" wear with a black pencil skirt. I used Butterick 5890 and a cotton tiny white polka dot on black for the collar. I washed both pieces before starting! http://shopgibberish.blogspot.com/

hauswitch

hauswitch says: Here's a (maybe)dumb question: I am making no-sew curtains with this and the bonding tape says to wash the fabric before use. Does washing/drying this compromise the integrity of the fabric at all? I got this in the Cotton Poplin. I would appreciate any feed back!

jesshawke says: Ordered this to make a heptagrin spiral skirt for 'Festival of the Spoken Nerd: Life, Oh Life!' show earlier this year. I needed a biology based print, so this Origin of Species fabric was perfect! It's absolutely beautiful and would recommend it to everyone. I've worn it a lot since then and have received lots of lovely comments about the Darwin print and will be ordering more soon! So please with the fabric and thanks again!! X

sunnybunny2 says: I can't make it large enough to tell on the site, but are the edges of the design very visible? I wanted to use it for a quilt, but I don't want to run into trouble if it's obvious where one repeat ends and the next begins.

turdles

turdles says: I'm a biologist and I'm insanely in LOVE with this fabric :) I want to use it to upholster a bench for my dining room. My only question is if there is any chance you're planning to do a mirror repeat? I ask because if I print on the heavy canvas (58" width) there is a ~1" blank space that runs horizontally through the print, and you can see the vertical edge of the design. Have to have this fabric <3, if no mirror repeat is planned I'll use it for a cushion instead! Thanks so much!!

frankey44

frankey44 says: One question though: is the background color of the fabric white or cream? The picture of the design shows it as cream but on the pillow that you made it's white.

megrose...

megrosesews says: I adore this fabric. It would be great in knit for a fitted tee shirt. I cannot figure out if your designs are publicly available to buy or just for you and the fabric, though. Tried to figure out if I could order a test swatch and couldn't figure out how, unlike when I do my own stuff. Anyway.... great job. I sure hope this wins. Unusual, not at all like anybody elses. Though I liked many of the big bold designs too. But yours really tells a story. MegRose
