Space dress

When my husband and I dicided we want to take my little brand Tummietown to the next level I had a bit of a stress moment… I want to do so many things! I don’t know where to start. Ideas for fabric prints, kids items and accessories, patches, pins, caps, socks, dresses, sweaters, backpacks… My head explodes 🎉
So I had to take a little break and sew some things from the knippie or Ottobre. Just sew and don’t think to much. Hopefully this helps me to make a clear plan for the future.

This dress is from Knippie 1-2015
I draw the space fabric myself and printed it by Spoonflower. Unfortunately it’s faded a lot after one washing 😥

Loulou & Tummie’s robot space fabric!

We (Loulou & Tummie) printed our own ROBOT & SPACE fabric! Yay!
I’m not sure what we want to do with it yet…  kids clothing…  a line of fabrics… or both! Either way it would be very exciting ٩(●˙▿˙●)۶

I printed one yard of each pattern at Spoonflower to see the print and fabric quality. For the robot fabric I chose the ‘organic cotton interlock knit’ and the space pattern is printed on ‘Kona cotton’. The fabrics feel good and the colors look great but not so sure yet about the overall quality. The color faded a bit at the creases after the first washing and when you stitch it leaves little white holes in the fabric (bigger then normal). Using a very thin jersey needle helps but maybe this is a common problem with this type of printing? I never experienced this before with printed tricot/ jersey fabrics I bought.
Now we’re looking for another company or other techniques for printing fabric to test and it would also be handy if it is a bit closer to home. If you know any, please let us know!

Of course Koko will show off her new robot dress to promote our new patterns ♥
More coming up!
