Fabric: Fresh Designs from Spellstone

British designer Alex Morgan  of Spellstone Studio has an arresting array of new fabrics in her Spoonflower store. My favorite designs make up the collection Ambiguous Animals and are based around extinct fauna of the Ediacara, the earliest forms of animal life. Vibrant, graphic, and with a sophisticated texture that holds the collection together, Ambiguous Animals makes fabulous interior fabric; I love the cushion mock-ups Alex has put together. Top notch!

Alex is a UK-based freelance designer and Artist in Residence at Luna Guitars. She works internationally creating tailor made patterns for a range of surfaces including guitars, hair ornaments, packaging, fabrics and printed paper products. I discovered Spellstone when she won the Retro-kitchen Fabric of the Week competition at Spoonflower with her Spoons design. Below are some more eye-catching designs from Spellstone's 'Freshtastic' category on Spoonflower, including the winning Spoons design.

Alex has been active on Spoonflower for some time, so she has truckloads of great designs to choose from. There are also some goodies in the 'Designs not for sale' category, so here's hoping she is just awaiting swatches and they will be available soon. Here's a peek at one I like:


Lovely! And very inspiring - thanks Alex! Pop over to Spellstone Studio on Spoonflower or Society 6 to see more of Alex's designs. Or to learn more about Spellstone, or to get in touch, visit the Spellstone website.

A huge thanks to Alex Morgan for allowing Kitty as a Picture Illustration and Surface Design Blog permission to publish these images.
