AGF Collection Reveals: 2022 Part 1

The Playful World of Petite Circus Fabrics by Alexandra Bordallo 


Here in South Florida, during this time of year, there are a couple of very fun festivals and circus events happening that are always so exciting! Going there with good company and of course, all the fair food will always bring a smile to my face. Once I laid my eyes on Alexandra Bordallo’s Petite Circus collection, I was instantly brought to this happy place! Reminding me of all the fun times I had when I was a kid going to these fairs, waiting in line to go on the rides and having good conversations with friends, and eating my favorite treats like popcorn and cotton candy.

I was so happy to hear the story behind this collection, as it’s quite the special one for Alexandra! She dedicated this line to her son that was prematurely born, and her journey through taking care of a baby at the NICU and her older son at home. This collection is for all the strong babies and their families who are going through a similar experience.

Petite Circus also has some substrate options available! There is one knit print called “Rearing Horses Dim” that would be ideal for apparel for the little ones or even some snuggly bed sheets. Prepare to snuggle up this season with the cutest flannel prints, there is “Opening Act Shuffle” that features small yet mighty clowns that are perfect for the backing of your quilts and “Enjoy The Snow” flannel print that has tons of fun elements like tickets, food stands, and circus tents! 

Add to the fun with these matching AGF Elements:

Oval Elements in Peacock & Pomelo.

Squared Elements in Teal, Lox, and Honeycomb.

Pure Solids in Cozumel Blue, Coral Reef, Apricot Crepe, Honeydew, Icy Mint, Turmeric,  and Warm Wave.
