With “Earth Day” just right around the corner, we’re taking a turn to the wild side and summoning our friends from the animal kingdom for our latest, whimsical collection, “Indigo & Aster.” Ever since I can remember, I’ve always looked to animals for inspiration. For me, it was specifically admiring the different plumage of birds and how they just had such unique color combinations that I would never imagine putting together. Definitely an interesting and different way of creating a color palette for a DIY project!
From diverse habitats such as jungles, forests and the sea where these creatures dwell, this collection created by our designer “Bari J.” comes to life with darling rabbits and deer wearing floral crowns to leopard prints, as well as fusing multi-cultural inspired designs, painterly foliage and geometric patterns. Without a doubt, you’ll embark on an enchanting sewing journey with these prints.
What makes this collection extra special to me is the "Radiant Menagerie Panel" which allows you to have endless possibilities of fussy cutting the cute critters, as well as the leopard prints which is on the trend radar this year, especially for the fall!
Of course, Bari J. who is known especially for her painterly flowers and her maximalist philosophy of "more is more," this combination truly translates into this whismy collection, especially with the florals!
