Much excited squealing
A whole lot of doctor who fabric. Ok, so it’s sold in flagrant breach of copyright, of that I’m sure, but before auntybeeb complains I’d like to point out that the one and only licensed who print is absolutely crap.
Gareth is delighted with the calvin and Hobbes tardis print, which is for his shirt only, and we both love the vitruvian dalek. I love the who damask for it’s clever design, and the tardis panelling for it’s subtlety.
I took the chance to order whilst the pound was strong against the dollar because spoonflower is pretty pricey, but for something special it’s definitely worth it. A word of warning to anyone considering it though- they sell in yards rather than the metres were used to in the uk, and the cloth is relatively narrow. Even so I might have overcompensated by ordering 16 yards for 4 shirts, but I’m planning on seeing what I can make for myself with the leftovers. It seemed better to get more than I needed because I wasn’t sure how my patterns would fit the narrow width, and international shipping is pretty hefty.
Later this week I’m going to play with the delft clay casting set that’s lain in my workshop untouched for years- melting scrap silver into question mark custom buttons for custom shirts sounds like an excellent first project!
