Custom Illustrations and Fabric Pattern Design

Hi, I’m Lauren, an Australian illustrator with a passion for surface pattern design and the handmade process.

Over 10 years ago, I opened Thistle and Fox on Etsy as a place to sell the custom plush toys and dresses I had been making for local markets and samples I’d created while studying pattern making and advanced sewing skills at TAFE. I am always designing, dreaming and making things with fabric and thread. I'm a fan of linen dresses with big skirts, pockets and buttons.

For the last 6 years I've been building a large portfolio of prints which are custom printed on wallpapers & fabrics suitable for crafting, quilting and fashion garments. Modern Australiana, romantic watercolour florals, botanicals, delicate pencil drawings, cute animals and vintage style designs can all be found in my portfolio: https://www.thistleandfox.com/portfolio

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Fabric & wallpaper orders cannot be gift wrapped but are carefully packaged and sent to you direct from my printing partner in the USA.

I gift wrap all handmade orders being sent from my Australian studio using a calico bag, recycled tissue paper or brown paper with pretty tape, ribbon or vintage linen string.

If your order is intended as a gift please make a note during checkout and I will do my best to include a little extra tissue paper, gift card or something to make the parcel really special!
I'm always happy to include a personalized card with a handwritten note if your order is being sent directly to the gift recipient.

NO CANCELLATIONS

Why can't I cancel my Order?

✔ FABRIC & WALLPAPER is CUSTOM PRINTED ON DEMAND

When you place an order it will begin printing within 12hrs. I send you a confirmation email via Etsy. After this time your order cannot be cancelled.

Please make sure you carefully read all info in each listing regarding production & shipping times. And take note of my shop policies.

If you have made a mistake or need to change any details please contact me immediately. It won't always be possible to make changes but I will do what I can to help.

Please note that I do not sell pre-printed mass produced products. Every item is custom made just for you. For this reason I cannot accept returns, exchanges or order cancellations. I hope you understand

Care instructions

✔ FABRIC

For all fabrics, except those containing silk, Machine wash warm or cool on a gentle/delicate setting, using phosphate-free detergent. While testing prototype fabrics I usually use a natural eco-friendly washing powder, a gentle or regular cotton wash machine setting and temperatures up to 40 degrees C. I don't own a dryer as I like to make use of the free energy from the sun but if you live somewhere where a clothes dryer is necessary, use the gentle settings.

For silk, silk blends and velvet, it is best to hand wash in cool water using a gentle phosphate-free detergent suitable for delicates. Do not soak your silk fabric! Dry in shade and preferably flat or without using pegs which may damage or warp the fibers. Do not iron.

Which wallpaper can I use for a kids room?

✔ All our wallpapers are safe for kids rooms.
Choose paper based on whether you have completely smooth walls and whether you will be installing the paper yourself or getting help from a professional.

✔ Woven wallpaper is PVC free peel & stick fabric paper. Wall surface must be totally smooth, clean, dry, dust free for the paper to adhere properly.
It can also be used for wall decals, contact paper for crafts and decorating furniture. It is perfect for drawer liners too!

✔ Smooth wallpaper is water activated - soak in water to activate the glue side and apply to clean dry smooth walls.

✔ Traditional wallpaper (special order only) is professional commercial grade luxe wallpaper with a subtle pebble texture. Contact me for more info

Can I sell items I've made using your fabrics?

Yes, of course you can! You are buying fabric from an indie designer but its just like buying fabric from any store (only much much better!), its yours to use as you wish for any project, either for yourself or for your shop.

I always appreciate a mention as the print designer (though its not a requirement!) and I really love to see what you create when using my fabrics so get in touch with a pic or link to your finished projects or products. Discovering a photo of my fabrics being used is a highlight of my day!

Fabric Turnaround Time & Shipping Info

With a portfolio of over 2000 designs and colourways it is impossible for me to keep all my fabrics on hand in my studio in Australia so every yard you order is printed to order and shipped directly to you from my printing partners in the USA, Berlin and Australia.

If you live in USA, Canada or Australia (for example) your order will ship from the USA. If you live in Europe or UK, your order will ship from Berlin.

Fabric, gift wrap & wallpaper ships for FREE.
VAT/ Customs fee may apply for some locations. Check with your local customs office. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

✔ Regardless of where your order will be shipping from, you will always deal only with me, the fabric designer and owner of Thistle and Fox.

More info about fabric orders

Organic Cotton Fabrics
You will find some GOTS certified Organic Cotton fabrics available in my store. When placing your order you can select a fabric type from the drop down menu. Organic Cotton Sateen, Knit or Double Gauze (muslin) are available.

Organic Cotton fabrics are WIDER than the standard preview image so there will be more print repeats across the width of the fabric.


Can you make the fabric print bigger/smaller/a different colour background for me?

I am happy to make simple adjustments to colors or the scale of any of my existing designs. You'll need to contact me BEFORE checkout to arrange any customization. Once your order is placed fabric will begin printing in as little as a few hours = too late for changes to be made.

Cot & Bassinet Sheets - Made to Measure

I am happy to create custom orders to fit your special bassinet or cot mattress. Get in touch with the dimensions of the mattress and the type of fabric you are interested in having the cot sheets made from.

Example: "My baby's cot mattress is 75cm long x 65cm wide x 10cm deep and I'd like the sheet/s to be Organic Cotton Sateen in your Blue Wren print. Order would need to be shipped to the USA"

I will reply and provide a quote within 24hrs of receiving your message.

Thanks!

Custom and personalized orders

✔ Nursery Linens, Cot Sheets, Blankets etc

Custom orders for quilts, cot sheets and nursery sets are welcome.
Contact me with details of what you would like me to create for you.
Can I get that design I like in another color? Can you make a nursery set in different combinations of prints?

Yes!

How does it work?

I'm the fabric designer and I have an outside company print the fabric for me (on demand, so only what is needed is printed) they then send the fabric to me and I do the sewing then send the finished items to my customer.
It's a process that usually takes 4-6 weeks

Any QUESTIONS?

Tracking & Shipping Delays during COVID19

From April 2020 --> There have been significant shipping delays between the USA & Australia. If you are waiting on an order, Don't worry, your parcel is NOT LOST. It is delayed due to the lack of international flights which would normally allow international parcels to be delivered on time. If timing is critical, please ask me BEFORE ordering, about purchasing a shipping upgrade for an Express international parcel which will ensure you order arrives within 14 days of being sent.
