Steampunk victorian fabric find
I deliberately avoid Spoonflower because I'm a seamstress with a weakness for cute cottons and they have them by the boltfull. It's just safer for us all if I don't know what I'm missing. However I did get lured over today and look what they have --
Steampunked victorian wall paper! Love! And it reminds me, in a round-about way, of the wallpaper in Disney's Haunted Mansion (any of them) which at first looks all innocently like normal victorian fare and then, on closer inspection, has creeptastic faces. Only instead of faces, here you get cogs and dials. A good trade out for one's living room, I would guess.

Am I the only one who looks at that and sees hearts? Yes? Just me? Ok then.
And that's just the first designs that caught my eye. They have a whole category of steampunk, along with some fabulous vintage fabrics that I'm working hard to resist. See, this is why I avoid Spoonflower - too much good stuff!
