Urban Circus - Giveaway!

First, thank you all so much for your very thoughtful and sweet notes on my last post. They were really wonderful companions and will be terribly missed. I'm still a pretty big weepy mess but each day will get a bit easier. All of the personal stories you shared, good thoughts and prayers you sent my way are really tremendously kind. Thank you.

Let's get to that giveaway now! As you all know, my second line with Robert Kaufman called Urban Circus is coming out soon. It will start shipping in August which is just around the corner! I can hardly believe it... I think it's a bright and cheery line and I see so many possibilities for cute projects! Quilts, pillows, pjs, bags, clothes for the kiddos, clothes for big people (I would love a skirt from the elephants...).

I whipped up a picnic quilt a few weeks ago that I just love. The quilt pattern is from Erin at House on the Hill Road and it has little pockets on the back of each corner so you can tuck a rock in each corner to keep your quilt from blowing away. It's hand tied and with the big 16x16 squares it came together in an evening. I just backed it with a simple bed sheet so I didn't have to mess with piecing the back.




Here's the details on the giveaway. Good luck!!
-I'd love to hear what projects you'd make with Urban Circus
-Two lucky winners will each get FQ packs with both Spring and Earth color ways
-I'll draw the winners this Sunday AM, 7/10

Urban Circus in Spring



Urban Circus in Earth



A quick update and another fabric giveaway! After you leave your comment here, make sure you go visit my pal Sam's blog, Mummysam. She's got a new line coming out with Robert Kaufman in the same time frame and you will LOVE her fabric!

We are having a baby in February so I would most definitely be making something baby-related! I'm thinking carseat cover, burp cloths, and pieces to a stroller quilt... but I could easily change my mind to a block toy or a pair of cute little pants! Love the pink elephants!

tong said...

i'm so excited for your new line, love the prints, the animals, and the colours! they are perfect for kids' projects - clothes, backpacks, quilts and pillows! thanks so much for the giveaway and congratulations again on your new line!

First of all, I would cut off the selvages and make something super special with them. :)

And then, hmmmm, I would look at them for a really long time and just savor all the artistry.

And then I would gather up the courage to actually cut into them and make a little throw for each of my grandchildren to enjoy while reading books.

tkm said...

Love the new colors for these fun prints, they will be so great for baby quilts. Thank you for the giveaway!

Tina @ Squirrel Acorns said...

Super cute picnic blanket! I'd love to make one of those, we don't have a picnic blanket and I think that is sorely lacking on my part. I have several baby quilts to make this summer (another round of friend babies!) and I think the earth line would be great for a boy without being babyish at all, as would the spring line for a girl. And I'd love a skirt made with those elephants too!

Shari said...

Spring colors will be a pinafore for niece aged 18 months and earth colors will be a shirt for my nephew aged 6 months!

Amber H. said...

Looks like I'm lucky number one!

Baby quilt! Hopefully I'll be pregnant again by the end of the summer, and once we find out what we're having, I'll go ahead and make the quilt!

(PS: pop over to my blog, I came up with an awesome binding calculator that all of you quilters should be interested in)

Leslie Cook said...

I see lots of baby quilts! Those giraffes and elephants are just too cute and in colorways for both boys and girls!
Thanks for offering a great giveaway!

RWL said...

we could use some new placemats and napkins. i love the cheeriness of this line - would be perfect on our bright white kitchen table. :)

Meg said...

Another baby quilt here or maybe some little baby shorts! My brother and SIL are expecting a new little one, and this would be so sweet!

Kati said...

I'd love the earth fabrics to make a baby quilt for my newest nephew due in a couple months.

Joanna said...

A baby blanket would be awesome with these. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jorie said...

I have a friend who has been begging me to track down some Urban Circus in Earth ever since I showed it to her so I can make a fabulous throw pillow with it for her living room. She LOVES the elephants and bright colors!

Mandy Noble said...

Absolutely love them!! I need (would love) to make a picnic blanket/quilt with them!

Jodi said...

My first grandchild is due in October - a boy! I would love the Urban Circus in Earth to make him some cushions for a rocking chair and floor cushions!

Poppyprint said...

how generous of you!!! With Spring, I'd definitely make some of my go-to purses, Made By Rae's ButterCup Bag. I think it would look amazing in the pink ele's lined with the yellow dot!

MN2NM said...

Maybe a bunch of boxy pouches, so I can spread the love around, though I'd be sorely tempted to make a quilt and keep it!

Ali said...

I think a baby quilt for my husband's friend who is having his first baby this December. I want to find really cute, adorably delicious fabric for their quilt and this just might have to be it!

Katie B. said...

Well, I'd make a quilt of course! And I'd definitely fussy cut some of the animals and applique them on some shirts for my son.

P.S. So sorry to hear about your pup!

AllieKatMom said...

I see kids quilts! Happy smiling kids quilts :)

Janna said...

Oooh, would LOVE some of this gorgeous fabric;) I've made a couple pair of the pants in Anna Marie Horner's Handmade Beginnings book - using some of my pieces of Heather Ross lightening bugs fabric on the little piece on the bum of pants - so cute!! Would just love to make my boy some with those little elephants on the bum - so so cute!!

Jennifer said...

LOVE your Urban Circus!
I think something fun for my nieces (5yo & 1yo) would definitely be in order. Maybe a doll quilt for the 5yo and a playmat for the 1yo? The 5yo starts kindergarten in the fall so a cute pencil pouch would definitely be in order!

Di~ said...

Cute Cute fabric! I would for sure make a baby quilt and I think bumper pads would be great also! Thank you for the chance to win some of your fun fabric and for your creativity.

Designer Jules said...

I for sure would be making some baby items....bed skirt some window coverings etc. I have no idea yet but maybe even a matching quilt. I would be so excited to win and if nothing else I am so excited to buy the fabrics when they are out.

Leslie said...

these are amazing...thanks for the giveaway. i would likely use it fir a quilt...maybe for our new baby

pieceLove said...

I love it all, but don't know exactly what I'd make with it just now. Something grand, of course, when inspiration hit.

Keriann said...

Oh fun fun fun!! You know I'm thinking some softy jingle blocks would be SO fun with this fabric! My son would love them! Also I have a sister and sister in law both having babies at the end of the year...there will be lots of quilting to do!

sally said...

I really love this line of fabric. I would love to make a baby blanket with this fabric. It is so bright and fun and would make a perfect baby blanket.

Hollie said...

My best friend is having a baby next month so I would make an adorable quilt for her coming little one! Thanks for the great giveaway!

kaiolohiakids said...

First I'd use some in clothing for my granddaughters-how I love the pink elephants. Then I would have the scraps-probably a lot because I always buy extra yardage that would be perfect for quilts. My granddaughters get a huge kick out of seeing fabric from a dress or top in a quilt-they can't outgrow the quilt!

Anita said...

I would probably make a skirt for my daughter. What fun fabric!

Vickie said...

I love these! First, I would design 3 unique baby blankets. (I would have to decide which fabric I wanted more of for each back and get it ordered). I would save some fussy cuts for 3 wall hangings designed in the style of "Don't Look Now" and her Rocket pillow tutorial. One of the blankets and wall hangings would go to each of my three children for their first child, (which means one would get one for a 1st birthday). :) If I could save even one scrap for each family, I would put it on the front of a onesie or a bib or even a cute bag. :) Oh what fun I would have!!!! :)

Stevens Family said...

I see baby quilts, baby dresses, even some little boy shirts and pants, and a skirt for me! Wow, I'm going to need a lot of this fabric.
I love the colors. You are amazing and so talented!
Thank you for making my day just by showing some fun fabric that made me smile (that's how I know I need it in clothes I will wear, it will make me happy)

Leah said...

These are great. I am going to make a crossover quilt for my daughters bed.
thanks for the chance
lbroadstreet@tds.net

Vickie E said...

hmm...I would likely make a doll quilt for my girls or a stuffed toy. I am dabbling in stuffed toys lately :) I have tufted tweets..it's waiting for the perfect pattern or idea to come to me...soon I hope.

Bailey said...

I would make a quilt for my friend who's expecting a baby. They've been trying for quite some time to get pregnant with child #2 and she's expecting in January! I love both color ways but because I'm a mom to 2 boys, the Earth fabrics really call my name!

carriegel said...

We have a new baby arriving in the family in January. This would be perfect for a baby quilt.

Sarah Craig said...

I think I might redo the room my granddaughter uses in my house with curtains, pillows, and a quilt! Or maybe some clothes for her.... or trim some for me! Or all of the above! A fat quarter pack is a wealth of riches!! PS Love that picnic blanket! What a great idea to put rocks in the corner pockets!!

Lindsay said...

I would certainly make a quilt which would then be snorkeled away for the birth of my first niece or nephew (fairly soon hopefully! woot woot).I really like the simple design of the quilt you have featured. It really highlights the fabrics.

If I have any left over i would make a stuffed giraffe with the giraffe prints.

shelia said...

lOVE loVe LoVE
Grandbaby boy due mid August..looks perfect for making him something Grand!!!! :)

Sequana said...

Oh, these would be perfect for grandkids! And the picnic quilt for one of their families. What a great idea about the rock pockets. *S*

Let me add my condolences about your pets. I know how much they must have meant to you. *hugs*

deserae said...

I would love to make a twin quilt for my nephew!

EmileeHope said...

I am always making gifts, but I think I would be a bit selfish with this fabric because I am a bit of an elephant freak!! I LOVE elephants...I think a little summer bag is in order with the Spring collection and I would use the Earth colletion (along with some solids that match) to make a little patchwork picnic blanket. I need a new one, and one with elephants on it would be just perfect!!

Mary said...

What a fun giveaway! I'd love to make a baby quilt with this fabric.

LoriJ said...

These fabrics are so dreamy! I am thinking of making a great twirly skirt for my daughter, who has her own great style!

Anna said...

these fabrics would be so cute for a kid's summer hat, or maybe a dress, or shorts. So cute! I would love to have these to use!

Melissa said...

A friend has decorated her daughter's room in a girly jungle theme, so I think I'd probably make something for her room. A wall hanging, like maybe a collage of different sized canvases covered with the Urban Circus fabrics.
It's beautiful, really!
I'm in the LA Modern Quilt Guild, and we had our meeting last night. Leslie shared how wonderful it was to meet you in Austin, and there were 8 very happy people after the giveaway. It was great to see all the fabrics live and in person. Thanks!

Jeni said...

What an awesome giveaway! The fabrics are beautiful!

I think I would make some patchwork pillowcases out of this fabric! :)

Barb said...

Oh, I'd make a patchwork quilt for my friends little one and a patchwork skirt for my daughter!

nanannwoogies said...

My littlest girl absolutely loves having animals on her clothes -- is always begging to wear her turtle dress -- so I think I'd definitely need to make her an elephant dress! Or giraffe dress!

The fabrics look outstanding!

Val Miller said...

I would make a quilt for sure!!! LOVE the fabric!!

Kelly O. said...

We're due to have a baby any day and I plan to buy some of this fabric to make crib sheets!

Laurie said...

I would love to make my son or daughter a quilt.

Meg said...

A good friend is having a baby next week, and while baby has already gotten a quilt from me, her big guy is about to be 2 and should have a special Meg-quilt for his big day! I'd absolutely love to use the Earth prints for that!

Karen said...

I would like to make a disappearing 9 patch with those fabrics.

Kaye Prince said...

I'd most definitely use the fabrics to make a quilt...maybe a baby version of my Euclid quilt!

Kate said...

Gorgeous fabric Laurie! Ofcourse I'd make a quilt. But I'd also make some little bibs - they would make the cutest bibs (not sure if I'd let my kids wear them while eating - they might get food on them!)

Candi said...

Cute fabric! And actually - I think i would make a picnic blanket with them. I love picnics and when my kids were small, we used to go on picnics all the time. I really miss doing that with them!

Amy said...

I just found out last week that I am expecting my first Grandchild. I think this fabric would be perfect for a baby quilt.

QuiltyGirl said...

I love the idea of a skirt! I think I'd make a skirt from that adorable giraffe print.

Such a cute picnic blanket! This prints are fun to use for just about anything. :)

Hannah said...

So cute! I'd definitely make a quilt (or three...) in a simple pattern to let the adorable fabric steal the show. I'd love to make an apron too. Really the possibilities are endless!

Barb said...

First and foremost, I want to make a tote using the Giraffes in Earth as the focus fabric!! Then a Spring Elephants pillowcase or two :D

Peggy said...

Beautiful fabric, thanks for the give away. I would make pillow cases for all my great nieces and nephew for Christmas presents. They are all just the perfect ages to enjoy Urban Circus.

Katie R said...

definitely some baby gifts! :)

Madeleine said...

I'd use them in a quilt for my twins. Spring for my girl, earth for my boy. So cute. Thanks!

Smeeker082 said...

oh I am so excited! My son absolutely adores elephants, according to him they are soo beautiful. With that I would love to make him a quilt to snuggle with, a pair of PJs, or whatever else his heart desires

Jenny said...

oh this would be so great as a dress for my niece. I love these fabrics. so cute!

kz said...

I would make a small quilt and some shirts and shorts for my son!

momto2wasd said...

I think I'd make a little dress for my hairdresser's new little girl with the spring colors. And then with the other I'd make summer shorts and an appliqued t-shirt for my son. I'd probably have enough to also do some pants of some variety. Maybe a cute pocket on a pair of denim pants to go with the shirt!

Christina said...

I would love to make a dress for my daughter!

Natalie said...

They will be lovely as giant pockets on kid's apron!

Ellen said...

I would like to make baby bibs out of the spring urban circus! I can also see a cute quilt!

Natasha said...

Lovely matching aprons for mummy and son while he helps me in the kitchen. Or a super cute, bright quilt for next baby due in August. Of course I will have to rope in one of my more crafty friends to whip these up for me. I'll supply the vino.

sy said...

the prints look fun :D i'd like to use it to make some projects in "sew darn cute", or the apron on the cover of "sew so cute".

allsewnup said...

This would make some awesome pillows. I like it!

Carolyn

Becky S. said...

Adorable fabric!!! I would make a quilt for my niece-I think the Wonkey Donkey quilt pattern would be cute using Urban Circus fabric.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Mary Margaret said...

Such darling fabric! I can see some baby bibs, a quilt (of course!), anything would be nice as long as it was cut to showcase the cuteness!

Amber Dusick said...

Oh my. The colors are fantastic! My little boys need some new summer shorts. These prints would be perfect for that.

faith said...

Hmm, quite honestly I'm not quite sure what I would do with them -- pillows, curtains, frames, a quick quilt? I'm in the process of updating two of the boys' rooms and I'm sure it would be put to good use in those spaces.

Karin Grow said...

I pretty much only make pillows and blankets because they're easy, but these adorable prints would be great for patchwork apron.

Katrina said...

I would make a hanging pocket for my double stroller, one that holds my keys phone and other important things inside, these prints would go great with the stroller colors!

Alisa said...

I would make a couple of pillows for my daughter's very first apartment. She is still in school (UC Berkeley) and finally has a very small place (It's really a rented room) of her own. I just love your fabric. The colors are just beautiful. Thanks for the chance.

Hanna/ miekita said...

Musicseeds said...

Sooz said...

PJ's !! What a fabulous idea, Laurie! I'd make some for the whole family!

Heather said...

heather.nevits@gmail.com

Jennifer Ladd said...

My new baby girl from Ethiopia should be here (hopefully!) soon - this line would make some great dresses, hats, bibs, and toys for her. Elephants and giraffes for my African baby?!? Perfect!

underthreefeet said...

I have two dress patterns that I have been saving and waiting for just he right fabric to use. I think these would be it!

Brady said...

We are in the process of adopting and I am trying to make some baby quilts. This fabric would be perfect for a baby, boy or girl. Thanks!

jenj said...

I was really inspired by the Wonky Donkeys quilt. I would use that pattern with these fabrics -- I think that it's a great way to show off a few fat quarters of a really great fabric.

Lisa Lee-Oswald said...

I would definitely make some cute things for my little man. These fabrics are beyond adorable.

Adriana said...

They are just beautiful!

I'd sew a pair of pants for my little boy (he loves giraffes and elephants) and then maybe some jarmies for myself.
I'm excited just thinking about them!

Your quilt is pretty cool though... maybe I'd give that a go!

pklaw said...

These are so cute! I really love the elephants in the pink! I think I would use these for some zipper pouches I am making for Christmas gifts or maybe a little something for my granddaughter to use for her first day of first grade!

StudioCherie said...

I think it would be a great fabric for my compact travel change pad bag. I better get that pattern out for how to do the zippered pouch part.

Dawn W said...

I am anxiously awaiting one of my three sisters to tell me that they're pregnant (two are trying, one not so much). This would make great baby quilt fabric with little hexagons!

~quiltedbydawn~ said...

Oh my goodness - I just found your blog and love your fabric! I would make my little guy a throw quilt out of your wonderful fabric - for him to use while he watches Planet Earth (constantly).

Mrs Chronic-Shock said...

I would use the earth to make my son a quilt for his up-coming big boy bed and use the spring for baby number two since we're keeping the same theme in the nursery but will have a girl :)

pixie13 said...

Those are gorgeous fabrics. I'm working on getting together some cute fabric for a girl's quilt, & these would work very well.

gevin13{at}gmail{dot}com

I'll have to think about that. Love your designs....

Kelly Irene said...

Oh, what a fantastic giveaway! I have loads of baby gifts to be making the next few months, and the fat quarter sets would be perfect!

Jenny L said...

I'm all about throw pillows and lampshades this summer. Both colorways would look great in my kids' rooms. Congrats again on Urban Circus' debut!

J Petersen said...

I have some friends who are having twins - one girl, one boy. I'd work on baby quilts for each of them - the girl in spring and the boy in earth. Very fun colors.

carrie said...

I forsee a quilt or two. I also got a new pattern for little wallets and these fabrics would be darling!

-carriechilton@gmail.com

Toni said...

I love the Earth version especially, I would probably make a variety of things. The giraffes are perfect for applique patches and would look very charming on a little quilt of the same fabrics.

linny said...

Some softies would look great out of these beautiful fabrics, the colours are lovely

Helene said...

I would make a little girl's jacket and brimmed hat, and matching doll's clothes. I also would make a couple of market shopping bags.

Magpye said...

I would make a reversible baby quilt for my best friend, who is expecting her first child (she's due shortly). This fabric is just so fun and colorful and would be an awesome introduction to colors and shape for her little girl. Thanks for the giveaway

Valerie said...

I would totally make a baby quilt for my new niece or nephew arriving next month. My sister-in-law told me she wanted something jungle-themed but more modern -- hello, perfect!

mab said...

My 20 month old will be moving to her "big girl bed" in the next few months. She needs a fun quilt and pillow to celebrate this. She loves loves loves animals, and I hate hate hate typical cartoony commercial options. (Let's leave the Looney Tunes and Dora on TV, not on her bedding!) Anyway, I think she'd adore bedding made from these prints.

Sooooo excited to see your work being produced on this big scale! Now I can't wait to see the Donkeys in Wellies...!

Grey Cat said...

I think I'd make a quilt for my son out of this adorable fabric!

Hoot Couture said...

Tiered twirl skirts, sensory blankies, cinch sacks, pillow cases - fun goodies for little ones :-)

Patty 1 said...

These fabrics would be oh so fun baskets and bags to house games and activities in my preschool classroom. What a cheerful and organized look we would have!

nicole / Twitter: BTHM1 said...

my daughter adores going to the zoo, and with our heat, I think a patchwork twirl style sundress with matching bandeau would be perfect!

LOVE this fabric!

Renate said...

Love the fabric...I would make a baby quilt for a very special baby born too early in Honduras. He was 3 months early and has had a rocky start, but has made improvements every day. His name is Michael and he is a fighter. An Urban Circus blankie would be the best!

mamabug said...

Okay, your fabric is made to go into baby articles NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. But honestly I see myself buying lots of the sheep fabric. My daughter is an Agriculture teacher and heads up the sheep projects, pig and goat too. She would be silly excited for a quilt made out of it!! Thank you and keep on designing. Kathie

Mrs. Darling said...

these are just so cute! if i am the lucky winner, i would use the spring palette for a tiny dress for my little 7 month girl and the scraps would go into a quilt. the earth colorway would be the foundation for crib bedding for my sister in law who is due with a boy...

i would have SO much fun working with these fabrics!

thank you very much for the chance to win!

and i am sorry again about this sad time. i hope tomorrow is easier than today...

Little Lady Patchwork said...

I can see a quilt with some nice appliqued animals on it!

Hannah said...

Fun fabric! I would love to make a baby quilt with this!

coyca said...

Those fabrics would look great in our play room. I'm thinking kidlet bags from jcasa, and floor pillows.

Camberly said...

This fabric would be just perfect to make a baby quilt(s) for my sister who is expecting twins.

Wendy D. P. said...

This is the perfect line for a baby crib or play quilt! I can't wait to get my hands on it! So adorable!

Anonymous said...

How cool is this?!?! My first visit to your blog - and the day our new grandchild is due - and the nursery is decorated in jungle - AND I haven't started the baby quilt yet (no surprise there), so I'm off to pick the perfect pattern (nice alliteration, huh)! Will be set to go when my fat quarters arrive ;) Seriously, I love this line and will be back to the site regularly! Susan

Eileen said...

these are just adorable and would be so perfect for my son's baby that's in the midst of being born as we speak!! don't know at this point whether girl or boy, but he's been collecting elephants his whole life as does my brother, and as did my grandfather and my mother-in-law.

renae said...

I see this as a great wall hanging in a kid's room with matching pillows!

Amanda said...

I think a cute patchwork kids skirt would be first on my list!

Ann said...

Now that I have a girl (after 3 boys) something mommy and me matching would be fun. Kicky skirts with some elephant trim perhaps. And your post reminds me I need a picnic quilt.

epban said...

I'd make a table quilt and napkins for the kitchen! Can't wait till the fabric is available!

binkwaffle (Holly) said...

Totally a quilt! Or some sundresses for my nieces. Or a crib bumper. Or... Or... Aack! How could one ever decide??

I have to totally agree that the selvedges would be coming off right away and be used by me for just me. Aside from that, well, maybe I should throw all the ideas into a hat and draw one out??

Bree said...

Too cute- those happy smile-inducing fabrics are begging to be made into a baby quilt!

Spendlove said...

Love the colors! So fun! I would have to make a quilt, and a skirt, and think how fun a bag for my 4 year old who loves purses! Thanks for the chance.

Nancy Sue said...

My son is growing out of the baby stage into more "cool dude" stage...much to my sadness sometimes. Perhaps a big boy "quillow" or bag for all those puzzle pieces that go AWOL, would look great using this fabric. Thank you for your generous giveaway!

Liz B. said...

I would like to do a baby quilt with tall skinny bars cut from the giraffes and fat squares cut from the elephants because I think it would adorable. I especially love the Spring colorway. Thanks for the chance at winning!

Rosemary P. said...

We have some new babies coming soon (friends) and I believe some new play mats would be in store!

Melissa said...

These would make the cutest small quilts. Perfect for new little babes :)

My husband likes bright cheerful colors and animals, especially elephants. He collects all sorts of elephant ornaments. Urban circus is just so perfect to turn into a quilt for my husband.

With two grand nieces (just turned 2 and 5) and two more grands on the way, these would provide some fun fabric to make things for them all. I love these colorful animals and know they would too. Looking forward to more come Sept. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

Wonderful Giveaway! I am all about the quilts so that is what I would make. These fabrics would definitely make one show stopping quilt! =)

Peaceful Piecer said...

I love this fabric and would make a quilt for my grandbaby.

Micmacker said...

My mom's favorite animal is the giraffe, and she also loves bright colors and elephants. I'd make placemats and napkins for her. So glad this fabric line is coming out!

Kelley O said...

I would love to add this to a baby quilt that i am making for a good friend but I may be forced to make a pillow for me! It would be a true test to give every bit of it up but then again, this baby is going to be very special.
Thanks for the great giveaway!

I love the picnic quilt, so maybe one of those. I also think one could go into children aprons for my children.

Congratulations on Urban Circus coming out (again) in August! It must be amazing to see your name on a selvage... and it is happening often for you, now. So cool!

I have three little girls, so I imagine Urban Circus would make some good looking dresses. Or I'm sure I could make a lovely little quilt with them too. A nap size quilt sounds perfect. :)

Thanks for another great giveaway!

I have a grandson who loves everything Nana makes for him, so would make him a fun quilt to take to his daycare.

The girl colors I will hoard for "someday" when he has a little sister.

jednoiglec said...

Great giveaway!

I would make a quilted curtains to the room of my daughter.

All With LOVE said...

Cute fabric. A quilt would be adorable also my puppy needs a new bright colored walking coat.

Nathalie said...

I would have to sit and pet them for awhile to let them talk to me about what project they wanted to make an appearance in. (sorry to hear about your dog)

Nova said...

I think I'd make a jolly tea cosy & some coasters :)
love this range :)

So many possibilities... I would start by making some baby toys (stacking rings and some balls) followed by a baby quilt for my sister's first little one due in November. Your fabrics are a perfect combination of childish whimsy and high style - my absolute favorites for children's projects! Congratulations on this line and keep up the good work!

I love the giraffes. We have a soon-to-be kindergartener in the house, and these would make great back to school clothes or a backpack! Thank you for the chance to win!

Karyli said...

I love the idea of a skirt. I think the giraffes would make a fun skirt as well as the elephants. They would also make some cute kids clothes. My real love is quilts though and it would probably all be used in a fun quilt before I ever got around to clothing.
Thanks for sharing.

Childfree Trophy Wife said...

Such great fabric, as usual! Too many cute ideas to make it would be hard to choose. I would certainly use every bit of the fabric, right down to any scraps leftover from projects and also the selvages. I'd make a bag, a wallet, a skirt, a headband, table runner, pillows, doggie beds, and of course a few quilts and wall hangings. Thanks for being so generous and doing another giveaway.

Jackie said...

i would make a mini quilt for my boys nursery

Julia said...

I will like to use these pretty fabrics to decorate our reading room! Want to use it for cushions covers and bean bags.. for frame... and the remaining can be use to make cloth books for my little baby gal!

Monica said...

i just found your blog (and fabric!) this morning while searching for a yoga mat bag. I LOVE your fabric! I think urban circus would make a really cute bunting for my toddler's room. it would also make cute needle case covers, fabric keepsake envelopes, wall pockets. i'm in love *sigh*

judy said...

I love all of these fabrics. I think lunch bags would be a great idea.

Anonymous said...

Love the design! I would def make something for my kids. sang(at)gci(dot)net

Marge said...

Would love that fabric. Such a good play on colour. I think some shopping totes and place mats for the grandchildren.
Thank you
Marge

JennyG said...

This is such great fabric... I love when I find fabric that is cool enough for boy stuff and still sweet enough for girls. I have two boys and am getting the itch to add to my brood, so all I can think about sewing lately is baby stuff... like bibs, super cool burp rags, a diaper bag, maybe some giraffe appliques on a little newborn onesie and about a million other little baby accessories. Of course, I don't want to jinx anything by sewing baby girl stuff so this fabric is perfect. I can make boy stuff (and secretly imagine how it might look for a little girl... maybe?)

webmailaddress2 said...

Am I too late? I would totally use the fabric to make an awesome quilt.

Linda said...

What a really cute group of fabrics you have designed. If I could win, I would make a twin sized quilt to put on the bed my grandkids sleep in when they sleepover. It would be a big hit!

my friend's baby loves giraffes so I would definitely make a quilt for her!

O My Word!?! said...

Hi! I would love to say a quilt but I think this fabric is screaming some sorta doll or stuffed friend for my little boy!

Amy said...

I need to make a baby quilt for a gift for a good friend. This material would be delightful!

Stephanie said...

I love these fabrics! I would make a quilt for my youngest daughter for her room. Thanks for the chance to win!

Monique said...

Hi I would definitely make a baby quilt for a friend and a great bag for my daughter! Thanks Mon

Angie said...

I think I would have to make matching dresses from these beautiful prints for my girls. Megan will be 3 in August and Julia turned 4 months today.

Angelina S. said...

My friends are having triplets so I'd use these fabrics to make one of the three quilts I'm making! Thanks for the chance to win!

Kelly said...

I can't wait for these to come out! I bought some Spoonflower prints from your etsy store and love them and I know these will be just as fabulous! Thanks!

Jessy said...

Oh wow! I didn't know I could love those prints even more than I did before. I am crazy for the new colourways! I am a nanny to an adorable set of twins (boy and a girl) and I would love to be able to make them matching big boy and big girl quilts for their beds.

teaginny said...

these prints are begging to be made into quilts for kids, for sure. I'd make a baby quilt for our local NICU!

Liane said...

What another fabulous collection! I would make a quilt with the fabric.

BaileyGirl5 said...

Lovely!! Dare I admit that I'd make something for me?? I'd love a fun quilt and these fabrics are so cheerful!

Heather said...

Love them! I've got two toddlers who are 18 months apart, Aidan and Olivia. They share a room, so these would be fabulous to use as bedding. I think coordinating quilts for them would be lovely!

Elena said...

So cute! I love how the animals have their own prints on them. I would make a quilt for my new little niece/nephew, who is due to arrive in October.
