English Insults

I was going to write about Sarah Waterhouse’s gorgeous hand printed fabrics soon anyway as she’s got some beautiful and quirky designs but then I saw her new English Insults fabric and she went straight to the top of my list.

English Insults Fabric - Sarah Waterhouse Hand Printed Textiles

The sunny yellow ink contains such insulting gems as ‘ninny’, ‘oaf’, ‘shambles’, ‘bounder’ and ‘scallywag’ that are little heard now. Let’s bring them back! Let me know which is your favourite in the comments section below.

Sarah’s other fabrics have bird brollies, knitting needles and yarn, birdcages and forest pods in a variety of colours for £7 for a 38cm x 54cm piece. I think I may convert one of her fabrics (I’m torn between the brollies and the insults) into a drum lampshade using her kit for £20.
