Another big box through the door and it contained extreme majesty. I've restocked Pretzels, Butterfly, and bright orange plain jersey, added five new prints, and two new colours of plain jersey. I've uploaded them all to the shop, but I'll tell you a bit about them too!
Air Balloons is down-right adorable. It features rows of stripey air balloons with a variety of animal
passengers- rabbits, pigs, foxes, and squirrels- in a bright turquoise
sky with clouds, rainbows, and robins.
Happy Girls is my favourite. It features a riotous scene with a variety of (you guessed it) happy girls,
prancing speckled horses, squirrels in fedoras, and butterflies amidst
apple trees, flowers and houses. I KNOW, TOO MUCH ADORABLENESS. Those horses, I die.
Missing Duck has some retro-style going on. It features a meandering river scene of ducks, frogs, and fish with retro style suns and flowers. I get almost as much pleasure from the names of fabrics as from the fabrics themselves. I'm assuming they refer fairy tales outside my frame of reference but I enjoy them. Which leads us neatly to...
Jack and Frog Friends. Do you like your frogs with a side of hipster? Then this is the fabric for you: a smattering of googly-eyed frogs catching flies from their lily-pads while wearing a variety of hipster glasses. Fantastic.
Last of the prints, Lemondot! This is a large-scale citrus print in blue and green on a bright lime green
background. From a distance they resemble polkadots but up close
they're clearly sliced citrus.
Finally, I have a yellow plain jersey. This one is sunflower coloured to coordinate with a lot of the new prints. For reasons unknown to me, this is a 100% organic cotton rather than a blend with elastane. That means it's not as heavy as the other jerseys, but it has a softer handle and a really beautiful drape. It's also 180 cm wide!
Last but not least, a jeans jersey! It has a woven texture that makes it feel a heavier weight than the
plain 95% cotton / 5% elastane jerseys despite having the same fabric content. The reverse of
the fabric is a soft off-white. Can you say jeggings?
