new: alice stevenson for st. jude’s

i’m a big, big fan of artist alice stevenson. i first saw her work a few years back and immediately ordered some of her incredible illustrations. i was thrilled when i was able to hire her to create the design*sponge shop logo and i’m even more thrilled now to hear that her fabric for st. jude’s is available! ‘treehouse‘ is a 2 color design screenprinted on upholstery weight linen and available in two colorways: grey on grey and grey on faded red. i’m loving the grey on red style and am now saving up to buy a few yards for a small chair reupholstery project. you can pick up yardage for your own home projects right here for around $86 per yard right here.

    What happened to the D*S shop?! What a great idea. Any plans to reopen?

    i decided to close the shop because sadly i didn’t have the time needed to maintain it at the level i wanted.

    i thought about re-opening but there are so many great new indie/handmade online shops now that i felt the need had been met ;)


  3. Kristina says:

    Understood. I can imagine it took a lot of time. Maybe you could consider doing a special addition shop around the holidays?

  4. grace says:

    For now I’m pretty sure we’re closed for good. But as always, we’ll do a week of gift guides- including a special guide dedicated to handmade work.


  5. Wow. I’m so glad I clicked on Alice Stevenson’s website! The piece you posted is nice, but her sketchbook section is pure joy.

    Thanks to you, Red Prairie Press, I checked out her site as well, and WOW!

  7. Wow, fantastic! I think i’ve loved every single thing St Jude has ever released!
