Ticking stripe pillows in poplin
I've been working on getting a good scale ticking fabric in miniature. I uploaded my image to Spoonflower and ordered two test swatches. One is a cotton sateen and has a whiter base the cotton poplin. The yellowish cotton poplin would work well for older, vintage items while the whiter sateen would work well for new, fresh items.
I ended up with a good scale pattern but without the detail of true ticking fabric. It doesn't look bad, but it isn't what I was aiming for. Also, when I say "good scale" I mean it has good relative scale. It looks right even if it is still not exact 1:12 scale. Exact scale would likely lose all ticking detail and be a busier striped pattern.
I went back to the original image and now I await more test swatches to see if I can get better detail to the print. In the meantime, I decided to use the first round of test swatches for other minis. Nothing should go to waste!
I made two sets of pillows from the two types of ticking fabric...one set is crisp and white and the other set is vintage. I love the vintage look of a ticking stripe pillow.
