This is the Alice in Wonderland Characters. This print also comes in blue and black.

This is the Fairy Tale Strip. This print also comes in black, blue, and red.

This is the Mini Card Army. This print also comes in white and blue.

In addition to the above prints, there is a Textured Checkboard print that comes in light blue, yellow, and black; one print that is Multi Alice in Wonderland; and Playing Cards that comes in black, blue, and red.

Spring is coming....

Do you plan ahead for spring/summer wardrobes? I always like to think that I do but I know I could do a better job of it.

For children, check out the lovely patterns by Indygo Junction, Favorite Things, Izzy & Ivy, Maw-Bell and more for creating lovely items for your children. Here's the link to the Children's Clothing. Also, don't forget about items to stimulate children's imaginations. Check out the Children's Accessories/Toys for some examples. Don't forget the Maw-Bell teepee, the castle tote. Turn off the electronics and play. Also, get the kids involved. Let them chose the pattern, the fabric, the embellishments.

For adults, check out the wonderful patterns by Loes Hinse Design, Indygo Junction, Serendipity Studios, Silhouettes, Favorite Things, and many more. Here's a link to the Patterns by Company .

Hope you find a few ideas. I will be starting the inspiration discussions again soon.

New Pattern Line....

There is a new pattern line at The Pattern Loft on eBay. It's Paradiso Designs. This line consists of 7 bag patterns, 1 pillowcase pattern, and 1 skirt pattern. Here's one of the bags:

This is the Everday bag by Paradiso Designs. It's designed to carry your water bottle, lunch, shoes, etc on a daily basis. I would have loved this when I was making the daily train trip into town. A little more stylish than the big black bag that I always carried.

This is the Perfect pillows pattern by Paradiso Designs. It is designed for 16" or 18" pillows. This is a great way to change the look through the seasons.
