Etsy Love: Skinny Laminx

Okay, so it all started with this blog post on Design*Sponge about these guys over at Spruce Austin.

I fell head over heels in love with the fabric they used on their couch revamp.

So then I visited this Etsy shop called Skinny Laminx.  How cute is that name?  She is an illustrator, writer and designer in Capetown, South Africa and she designs textiles and works with local craftspeople to have them printed onto locally-woven fabrics.  You can check out her blog here.

Then I promptly ordered a quarter-metre of each of these...

Colts in Teal

Cloud Birds in Aquamarine

Now I need to find something to do with them - project-wise.  But I don't care because I am so in love with them that I will figure it out!  Any ideas friends?

Oh, impulse...you totaly kill me.  And that my friends, is an inside peek at how my brain works!

Happy Friday!


  1. Gorgeous! I have a box full of impulse fabric purchases too! I love the fabric store, I have to touch all the fabric. Of, Fabricland has nothing on these!

  2. OOOh, Im loving the birds. They are a bit beach-housey. ALSO, you are the lucky winner of a prize, bestowed by me, over on my blog. Way to be awesome. Happy weekend!

  3. Oh. my. goodness. I am in love with this fabric! It's so whimsy! Oh, I wouldn't know what to choose to make with these fabrics...Whatever you do with this fabric will be fantastic though!

  4. Those are all pretty fabrics! Love the "Colts in Teal" especially. As for the ideas, I love how a similar fabric looks on that couch, so maybe chairs? Chair seats? :)
