Jane Foster: Bright, bold, and a touch of vintage

Even just a second on Jane Foster's blog makes me yearn for a sewing machine. Anyone who knows me will laugh at that suggestion! But her vibrant designs have so much energy, it is easy to be inspired.

Jane Foster is an illustrator with a passion for screen printing and vintage fabrics. Her clients include Habitat, The Art Group, and Clothkits. As well as the many cards and prints she sells, she sources vintage fabrics (mainly from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s) from around the world, and creates stunning cushions, toys, and other gorgeous things from her studio in Devon. Some of these items are available to purchase at Notonthehighstreet,,, and on Etsy.
Here are some of my favourite designs from recent posts on her blog.

And last but not least, my favourite cushion, made from a vintage unused 70s tea towel.

Many thanks to Jane Foster for allowing permission to publish these images.
