Maze & Vale goodies

A happy Monday to you!
Oh how I love Etsy. So much crafty talent and vintage goodness on one website.
I had admired the lovely screen printed fabrics of Maze & Vale for a long time.
When Leslie had a recent sale I jumped in for a couple of little purchases.
The piece of fabric in the background is the perfect size for a cushion. I have been going to freshen up the couch for a long while, so this is just the thing.

I also had to acquire one of Leslie's dropcloth artworks. She cuts up her screenprinting dropcloth and stitches them onto card to produce one of a kind pieces.
One of these days I will get around to framing it!

I also received a sweet swatch of fabric that looks like mushrooms to me. The fabric is just beautiful.
And how wonderful is the graphic design on her cards? I just love it.
Pop on over for a look!
Keep well friends xx


  1. That fabric is going to make a lovely cushion Sarah - can't wait to see it on your couch :) I adore Etsy too... so much loveliness just waiting to be discovered. I bought two vintage sewing patterns on Friday night of sweet dresses and pinafores to start sewing for the girls... can't wait for them to arrive! Have a lovely week Sarah xx

  2. I keep buying fabric and I still don't have a sewing machine!
    Etsy is soooo dangerous for me
    Love that mushroom print

  3. Love it !!!...happy

  4. Wish I had more time to hunt around etsy. So much goodness as you say x

  5. How exciting! Gorgeous fabric and well worth it to end up with something so original for your house.

  6. I keep on designing patterns because I really want to give screen printing a try. What it's keeping me is the lack of space at the shop, not to mention the lack of time...but hand printed fabric have a unique thing. can't wait to see what you'll make!

  7. It's so easy to become lost on etsy that's for sure. These fabrics are lovely. Hope you find time to make your new cushion soon Sarah - it will look great. I'm off to a screen-printing workshop on Sunday. I'm really looking forward to it, although heaven knows what I'll actually be able to achieve! xx

  8. Gorgeous contemporary fabrics Sarah, will look great as a cushion, and the artwork is wonderful.
    Etsy is brilliant for finding something unique.

  9. If only I had your sewing skills, then Etsy would be even more dangerous for me than it is already! Have a great week! Mel x
