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 ūüė•

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 Ŕ©(‚óŹňô‚ĖŅňô‚óŹ)Ř∂

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!
