Hedgerow Collection


Some time ago I created a collection of Hedgerow inspired designs for Makower UK
The fabric collection is aimed at crafters and quilters and features images of owls, frogs, hedgehogs and mice alongside fruits, flowers and leaves.
It is always lovely to see how many different uses people make of these fabrics. Imagine my delight therefore, to receive a gift all the way from a crafter in Maine. TKR Designs make use of these three inch square "label" designs by sewing them into Balsam Sachets. They say that the Balsam Fir tree grows in Maine and the trimmings from the tree are used to make scented wreaths. They have a wonderful clean, fresh scent: I have hung mine on a drawer handle, as it is far too pretty to hide in a drawer! You can buy these hand made sachets from their on-line shop at Etsy.com

  2. Hi Eamon,

    the cotton fabric is screen printed, each design has eighteen separate colours, which means eighteen screens.The manufacturer takes care of the printing, I just give them the artwork.I am amazed at the registration, working with so many screens makes registration very tricky.
