Fabric spotted in the wild

There's no way for me to know which companies use the fabric I've designed. Since I don't get every catalog or browse every website in the known universe, I'm dependent on kind souls like yourselves who report sightings. Here are a couple of recent ones that thrilled me to pieces. Pieces, I tell you. I'm still picking them up.

At Land of Nod: a limited edition child's Nod Chair.

At Nordstrom: a Reese Li Baby diaper bag, laminated to make the fabric weatherproof and wipeable.

Wow! Land of Nod & Nordstrom. Big time! Congratulations! :)

Emily said...

Very cute! I have to say, I just found your blog last week and have really enjoyed looking through your past entries. You have a lot of good ideas on here.

~Michelle~ said...

Cute stuff! Although, I kinda think the chair is a better deal than the bag...I could make the bag (or something similar!). Congrats :)

ohbrooke said...

Congratulations! That is so exciting.

Darci said...

This is awesome...I love the diaper bag - it would bag a great day to day tote as a substitute teacher. And the colors really pop.

Collette said...

This made me grin. I can't even imagine the smile you have! Congrats!

Abby said...

wow that is awesome!! I actually just got a few yards of your fabric in the mail today from fabric.com. I know I know, I'm not quite as exciting as NORDSTROM, but I thought it was a funny coincidence :)

Shannon said...

Very cute! I saw your ribbon in the pet store the other day used for some bells to hang by the door so the dog can signal to go out. I should have taken a picture! They were very cute! (and that's all because of your ribbon!)

Leah/ Texas/ United States said...

Amy C said...

wow, total and pure awesomeness CONGRATS

Christina said...

I was so excited to see your fabric on those kids chairs! I have been crushing on that fabric for a while but could not decide how to use it. So I bought my daughter one of those chairs for x-mas. You have amazing designs and ideas, and I love your grandmother's storage buckets :o) Congratulations on your success!

kate said...

ooo! it's like a fabric legacy!

Kyle Lynn said...

It is always such a fun suprise to see your items for sale!

Anonymous said...

WOW!! I bought my son one of those Nod chairs last year for Christmas. Now I wish I would have waited to buy the one with your fabric. Nicely done!

OIJOY PHOTO - the blog said...

that's awesome! AWESOME I TELL YOU!

Julie T. said...

Oh wow! Congratulations! That has to be quite a rush seeing your fabric on/making such cute things! Love, love, love Land of Nod. I would work for their corporate office if I could.

* TONYA * said...

Congratulations. That is so fabulous. I love those chairs. It must be amazing to see what wonderful things are created using your fabric.

char said...

I'm confused.

At Reese Li'Lexington in the description of the diaper bag made with Jessica's fabric it states: "...with a matte laminated surface on our printed pattern."

Are they implying that those fabrics are their designs? Maybe I am misunderstanding. If someone can clarify for me, that's great.

alexandra s.m. said...

That's so cool Jess! Congrats!

oliveandbean said...

LOL check inhabitliving.com i was just about to buy a wall panel in this fabric!!!!!

your work is amazing! it is rather ironic whenever i see a design online that i fall in love with it always comes back to you!

you are my design goddess!

UK lass in US said...

Ha, I was just wondering if you knew about the Land of Nod one, after finally going through my junk mail and finding an e-mail from them with those chairs plastered all over it. Congratulations - your fabric is taking over the world.

Jess said...

Char, Reese Li Baby is probably saying "our" to mean fabric they purchased. Now they own the stuff, so it's "theirs." Braemore, the fabric manufacturer who licensed my design, is selling it wholesale to other retailers like Reese Li and Land of Nod. This is good.

Olive and Bean (hi!): Inhabit Living, however, did not license this design from me, and seem to be printing and selling their own version now. We've spoken about this, and they state that they did not copy the design, and that it independently was developed several months after mine was on the market. Apparently great minds think alike. Very, very, very alike.

Holy cow! Congrats! Nordstrom is my favorite store evah. ;)
