Bug City Thursday... err Friday

Yep ! I fumbled at the first hurdle !
Oh well, we will be having sporadic giveaways over the next few weeks (that covers it).
Today I am going to show you the cute coordinating spots and stripes.

These babies are super versatile !  I am so pumped with this print. It is called Thorax and I designed it specifically to make stripey little bug bodies. Striped toys are the best. I have used it for everything, clothes, quilts toys, bags... 


This is Flannery in stripes and Flannery in spots. Flannery is a super sweet simple pattern. Stripey toys again !!

The stripes have also been made into binding  !!The binding is available wholesale through Ella Blue. It is the bomb. 


The spot print is called Pollen and features irregular little dots of white on solid backgrounds. Do you know how hard it it to draw a billion irregular random blobs. It is harder than it sounds.



This is Tiago by Melly and Me - the CUTEST little Toucan in the entire toucan universe. He uses the charcoal spot for his body and Melly pieced the stripes to make that fabulous beak. I think he is a masterpiece of design!

Today's giveaway includes some spotty fabric, some binding, patterns by Tied with Ribbon, Melly & me and myself and another cute pin !
Just leave a comment telling me if you are a spot person or a stripe person...

The winner is 2paw .

  12. You need me to choose between spots and stripes? Tough... think the spots might just win. That toucan is the cutest thing I've seen!

  13. Definitely a stripe for sewing and craft but not clothing!! (Hmmm, no Michelin man emoji?!?)
    So I like spots for when I am sewing my clothes and stripes for everything else.
    Therefore you are a creative genius because you have catered for both my personalities!!!
