Saffron Craig - Fantastic Fairies

"We have received the first batch of Saffron Craig's "Fantastic Fairies" range. Of course Saffron's fairies aren't just any fairies. These creatures are sprightly and joyful, dancing in circles, around flowers and inside love hearts."

The range features 4 wonderful designs in pinks, reds, browns and greens:

  • Loveheart Fairies—all over print of lovehearts with fairy motives
  • Fairy Circles—geometric pattern print of fairy circles
  • Fairies in Flowers—varying flower motives sprinkled with little fairies
  • Tulip Fairy—large motif surronded by butterflies and tulips, great for centre panels

These fabrics are printed on 100% light-weight cotton, 112cm wide and are now available.

New colour way for the Owl range
We now also have two popular designs in a new brown & blue colour way, complementing the brown Owl in Trees:

  • Owl Nesting in brown and blue
  • Trees Mignon in blue and green

You will find Saffron's whole range by clicking here!

Introducing Collette Patterns!

We are so excited about stocking these wonderful new patterns. Collette patterns will soon be available in our retail store and online.

"Colette Patterns’ mission is to help you create clothing that feels both beautiful and personal. While it’s all too easy to find cheap, cute, disposable clothing meant to be worn for weeks or months and then discarded, making your own clothing is an entirely different experience. It’s something cherished, something chosen, something entirely you.

These patterns are designed to be made into clothes that you will love forever. They are timeless, beautiful designs that can be made in a variety of fabrics to suit the season. They are wearable, practical, and pretty.

Colette Patterns come with full instructions, and are available in sizes 0 to 18." (via Collette Patterns About Us page.)
