Mod Oasis!





And guess what Mod Oasis is!! It's the name of a collection of fabrics to be sold in Joann's fabric stores in the U.S.! And the proud designer is...me! There are five designs in the collection, featuring elephants trumpeting floral bouquets, little birds sporting floral-patterned feathers, and butterflies fluttering between floral sprigs and clusters.
I am so pleased with the samples.  I received them last week and couldn't wait to open the package.  The colors are vibrant and sit really well together.  I'm tempted to chop them up and make cushion covers and whatever else I can think of as an excuse for having them on display... but no - I'll resist and keep them for my portfolio.  On the other hand, perhaps I should ask my talented Aunty Christine if she could make Isadora a blouse from just that pink one.  Maybe that orange one too (I'd try to do it myself but I'm scared it would be rubbish - I'm not the best at making clothes). Then I can photograph her wearing it!  Am going to have to design something for boys now and hope it sells so I can put Leo in it!

  3. do you know if there is any more of the elephant available? I bought all my JoAnn's had two weeks ago...and my customer would love another bag made out of it to go with the one I made her...but I cannot find anymore of it anywhere. And it was so much fun to work with. I never saw any of the other prints at all. They are super fun, too!

  4. Hi Red! I'm sorry I can't be more helpful but I don't know. As far as I'm aware they're not printing another run of that one. Sorry! But I'm so pleased to hear that you've made bags from it and that your customer likes it too! I'd love to see a photo!! Vicky x
