We’ve created a new section in the shop where you can browse by theme! Explore hand-picked round-ups of our favourite products across all the categories in themes like…flamingos! To show you what we mean, we have devoted a whole blog post to the lovely flamingo. Let’s start with fabric, shall we?
Rae Hoekstra’s Sidewalk collection for Cloud9 is an ode to the sunny afternoon walk home from school, when the weather is warm and the air smells of freshly cut grass. We love this kitschy flamingo ‘lawn ornament’ print! It is all printed on 100% organic cotton interlock knit. Perfect for making super sweet for clothes for little ones, and for yourself too of course!
This loose-weave cotton gauze flamingo fabric is everything we want in a summer dress! It is so cool that you will not want to wear anything else in the sunny season. It also looks great in quilts and can be made into funky espadrilles too!
These quilting weight flamingo-themed fabrics are totally awesome for so many projects. Add them into your tropical quilts, make zippered pouches, summer accessories, and more.
This beautiful lightweight flamingo cotton lawn from British design house Lady McElroy is just right for dressmaking! The Closet Case Patterns Charlie Caftan would really show off the larger scale prints or why not make some extra special pyjamas? This print comes in three lovely colour choices.
