Coming soon: more fabric | How About Orange

August 25, 2008

Coming soon: more fabric

I'm excited to give you a sneak peek of my new fabric. Look what appeared in my mailbox while I was out of town: table strike-offs from the mill! (That's a fancy term for proofs so you can make sure the screens look good before printing thousands of yards.) You can expect this stuff to be available by the end of September over at JCaroline Creative. All of these are on home decorator-weight canvas again.

This collection is called Amusement Park. There's plenty of orangey goodness for all the orange fans who were denied last time.

This other mini collection contains two brown prints on natural canvas, and they have cool little flecks of cotton bits in them.

I'll let you know when they're available. In the meantime, I'm dreaming up projects.

Just lovely! I can definitely see myself making something out of the boardwalk print! Can't wait to see it in person.

I love Boardwalk .. maybe for some curtains? And Sunflowers .... I can't wait!

kaleytaylor said...

I LOVE THEM! We're building a new house at the moment, and I'm in the process of picking out paint colors. I'm totally going to pick out a living room color to match these fabrics, so I can make throw pillows! Great job.

Leslie said...

Gorgeous! I'm a new fan.

Sarah said...

Larissa Holland said...

Oh! love Calliope! so so exciting and so RIGHT that you got to include orange this time. actually, I think Modern Flora would be a knockout in fuschias and oranges. hint, hint, Caroline.

They're fabulous! :) All of them. Congratulations on another beautiful collection.

Kosmika said...

Gorgeous!
I do love sunflowers and fireworks! I think i'm going to renew my living room with these (I just hope that the shipping rates are a bit lower than before, since I don't live in the USA and are pretty expensive: i hate to pay more for shipping than for the actual stuff, sorry). By the way, your work is great and inspiring! :)

Baba said...

Great fabric designs. I can think of lots of projects for these prints. I am in love with the black and white or brown prints! I want, I want, I want.

the aesthetic onion said...

love the boardwalk!

RESP... ect said...

I love you blog and your designs. These fabrics are gorgeous- as were your last ones. I'm wondering if you plan to ever do anything with yellows? I'm dying to decorate my new home office with your designs- but need to match the color scheme. =)

Jess said...

It depends on how well these do. Maybe we can print in more colorways! I'd love to.

Dariela said...

They're so cute, I love them!! Congrats!!

Min said...

Hey, good effort! I prefer the brown flecky fabric versus the b/w in your first photo, so now I'm excited! Really simple stripes looks new and original too, which seems impossible to do, but you did it. Fun!

daisy janie : scoutie girl said...

Fab, fab, fab! Nice consistency of design and excellent colorways! Keep it up!!

Jacquie said...

i'm in heaven! i can't wait...hmmm, that brown is going on my retro chairs in the living room. swoon!!!

Alicia Jane said...

oooo...i've been waiting to recover my dining room chairs and i think boardwalk will look great with my dining room:0) Can't wait!! Love them!

all over the map said...

These are fun and I like the variety. I'll have to incorporate the use of my ribbon with some of the fabric perhaps.

stephL! said...

Fireworks looks JUST like a fabric my mom made barbie dresses out of when I was a lass. And later, when I went through my headscarf phase, we made one with that fabric.

The Mommy said...

These are beautiful! I prefer the Modern Flora set for my own color preference, but those are so bright and cheerful!

Julie @ Letter9 said...

Oh! Lovely! Just the color palate I've been looking for. I can't wait to make a quilt for our bedroom!

Julie @ Letter9 said...

Oh. Strike that. I forgot about the home dec weight. Must find another project then. : )

Pencils said...

Orange and pink! Those are the colors I'm doing my daughter's nursery in. Hmmmmm.

With the kids back in school, I think my sewing machine will be making an appearance soon. Too many cute projects come to mind to put it off any longer.

Unbelievable. You are a fabric design rock star. These patterns are really refreshing.

Jess said...

Thanks, guys!

melanie said...

Gorgeous!! I don't sew much, but I'm very tempted to buy some, just to have it, you know... in case. ;p

Anonymous said...

I love boardwalk and would like to upholster a chair in it - is the fabric appropriate for this type of use?

Solveig said...

LOVE the Calliope!

TranquilityKnots said...

Love the boardwalk! Maybe I can make some new pillow covers with that.

ros said...

Calliope! I want some!!!

Jess said...

Anonymous, yep, you can upholster with this stuff. To see some examples made from my last collection which was the same weight, click here. If you want a sample before ordering all the yardage you'll need, I believe JCaroline can send out swatches from their store. After it's printed, that is!

::{J}:: said...

Yay! I love the boardwalk print!!!

Great work!

LizzyHouse said...

hooray for you! it looks great.

Good N Crazy said...

Oh Geez...I AM dreaming up projects too! I'm soooo excited to see orangey goodness for sure!
