Having Fun with Peacock Plumes

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Peacock Plumes virtual blog hop, celebrating Tammy Silvers' new signature line with Island Batik. Peackock Plumes is full of rich colours and beautiful prints. For this blog hop, rather than having us make one project each, Tammy asked us to mock up some of our favourite patterns using Peacock Plumes, which was so much fun! Let's start with a peek at the whole fabric line. Aren't those colours fabulous?
These patterns (and more!) are available from my Etsy shop, in both PDF and printed versions. I offer free shipping on the printed patterns. Click on the shop link or on the individual pattern names to go pattern shopping 😊

The first pattern I mocked up in Peacock Plumes was Night Sky. I love the fall vibes of this version! 
For a different seasonal look, I used the Peacock Plumes fabrics and added a white solid for the background in my Divided pattern to create a mod Christmas kind of feel.
I used white again for the background of Level Up. I love those two-tone starbursts and the gold glowing centers of the pluses.

Mix It Up is all about exploring mixing colours with fabric, so it was fun to try it out with the green and gold fabrics, mixing together in the green/gold fabric. These fabrics work so well for it! And those plum orange peels make the perfect frame.

Next up is Flower Path. I love how this looks with the pink and gold orange peels! Have you noticed I have a thing for applique orange peels??

Last, but certainly not least, I mocked up my You're a Star pattern, using a grey solid background and the pink and plum fabrics. Wouldn't that make a great gift for a pink-loving girl? You're a Star is a free pattern, which you can get here.

Which Peacock Plumes mockup is your favourite? I think Mix It Up is my favourite, though Divided comes pretty close. 

If any of the patterns caught your eye, be sure to visit my Etsy shop to pick up a copy!

  1. It is a toss up between Divided and Mix it up. The white background really sets these colors off.
