Sarah Jane captures the innocence of childhood Summer Nights with Wee Wanderer Collection

What Sarah Jane had to say about the collection:

Creating a fabric collection is like putting together a puzzle from your soul. I have a feeling or a set of colors and images, and I want to tell a story with it…one that resonates on multiple levels. I think about the child, and their interpretation of the illustration. I think about the quilter, and needing to cut up fabric freely. I think about the apparel sewer, and needing something that works on a large surface. I think about the mom who is going to redecorate their child’s space and needs lots of inspiration and lots of pieces to make her space work. I think about what colors are trending, but that also tell my story authentically. And so many more questions. But like I said, it all starts from a feeling and this collection comes from my own childhood memories of playing outside and wandering through the meadows and woods behind my house, with the only curfew being supper time. Wandering without boundaries. Daydreaming without having to be reeled in. Staying up past dark on summer nights to catch fireflies. And watch the twinkling trees in the distance.
Wee Wander:  It’s a play on words. It’s a “little” wander, or let’s all go on a wander.

What a sweet collection!

Tina Givens Riddles and Rhymes

Tina Givens’ collection for children captures a dreamy fairy land of friendship fairies, giant birds with crowns in the sky and floating castles. Bubble balloons lifting elephants up, up and away. Warm and huggable bears and bunnies and unicycle girls on their way to the soiree in the sky. Her fairy tales don’t have poison, nor witches’ spells, wicked stepmothers or mean sisters… they’re filled with magical flights and floating clouds with crystal rain drops and feather light ships. Tina’s little creatures love to play and giggle and flit through the air, granting wishes to dreams. Do you hear tinkling music with sweet rhyming whispers? A tiny piano and flute playing their riddles all the while the creatures dance in the air.

I just received these beautiful fabrics today! I can't wait to start creating new aprons from it!
