Sarah Waterhouse Fabric Designer Du Jour!

Golden Yellow Brolly Bird Fabric

It has been a little while since I featured a Fabric Designer but there haven't been many designs that have really popped out as being original in style and design.  That's until I discovered the delightful Sarah Waterhouse.  I love the pencil line designs and her choice of acid colours.
Birdcage Cherry Red & Lime
These birdcages are simply charming, I love the shade of cherry red and lime, it's curious when fabric makes your mouth water.
English Insults Fabric
A great idea for a fabric design and some great insults, nothing to offend the sensitive though.
Navy Blue Knitting Fabric
Fabric to make a little something for a knitting addict, maybe a purse, classes case, bag or a cushion.
Forest Green Pods Fabric
Who'd have thought pea pods could be so chic?
And here are some great accessories she makes with her gorgeous fabric!
Sewing Needle Case
I love this fabric and what a great needlecase, genius often comes from simple ideas!

50s Glasses Case
There's something about this fabric that makes me smile, it's just so jolly with attitude!
Coin Purse
Another fabric/accessory match made in heaven!

  • Sarah Waterhouse is a textile printer and designer who spends most of her time silk-screening her fantastic designs on to fabric.
  • All my items are environmentally friendly and hand printed using water based inks on unbleached cottons or organic fabrics. 
  • She's also a member of a group called Craft Candy, Sheffield based makers promoting craft in and around Sheffield.
I hope you have enjoyed my little introduction to Sarah Waterhouse and have enjoyed browsing some of her lovely fabric.  

For inspiration check out her Website  And to buy her shops at and
