I think you'll agree that opening up our newsletter today is not unlike opening up a box of crayons! This deluge of color are all the tools you need to create something truly beautiful.
New Fabric Arrivals!
Viva Folklorico! Here's Alexander's latest addition to their ongoing collection that celebrates the colors and flavors of the southwest. Spanish for dove, Las Palomas soar over colorful gardens and sit perched in their cages ready to sing us a song to the beat of a Mariachi band. This line calls for a picnic in the park and a side of salsa and guacamole!
This line recalls 1960's memorabilia a la The Patty Duke Show!
Meet Mademoiselle, Alexander Henry's 1960's girl who likes to spend her day listening to Rock n Roll on vinyl, talking on the telephone, and perfecting her coiffed hair flip. My time spent in middle school watching Nick at Nite tell me that Patty Duke might just be the muse behind this retro collection!
Pinafore Pattern available at Aliya's Hope Chest
Apple Lunch Box pattern and tutorial is available for free here at The Cottage Mama!
We have a couple of coordinating collections just arrived from Timeless Treasures that you can easily mix and match, as you can see. First up is Apple of My Eye. The sweet apples and primary colors lend this line to back to school clothing and accessories. I think it particularly calls for a pinafore like this one at left, available as a pattern from Aliya's Hope Chest on Etsy. Naturally, a lunch box, like the one above is a great choice as well!
Birdland bag shared in our shop from All the Pretty Things on Etsy!
