Say hello to my newest fabric collection: Outside Oslo | How About Orange

March 24, 2011

Say hello to my newest fabric collection: Outside Oslo

Big news! I'm thrilled to announce my latest fabric collection—please meet Outside Oslo, a line of home décor fabrics in two colorways. This batch is brought to you by The Needle Shop, Chicago's delicious little fabric store and sewing school.

Look for Outside Oslo in stores in May. If you're a shop or manufacturer interested in wholesale purchasing, head over to The Needle Shop's page for information on ordering. While you're there, you can grab a PDF that shows all the prints, along with lots of ideas for fun things to make.

Now, allow me introduce the cast of characters. I'm sure it's no surprise there are some orangey guys in here.

Stay tuned for an update when the collection is available to purchase retail. Hope you like it! And now I'm signing off for the week; I'm traveling and will meet you back here on Monday.

Update: The collection is now available online here.

Love, love, LOVE!! (But you already knew that, since I was privileged to get a sneak peek. It's great being your mom, y'know. ;) ) Can't wait to be able to sew something from them!

Have a great weekend, and say hi to A&D for me! (And see if A's iPhone will send a pic of that baby.)

Love you,
Mum

lisaT said...

beeeeeee-utiful!!!!!
great work, how rewarding to see it complete!

Katie said...

Congratulations! What creativity, and what an achievement. I absolutely love Skiff and Frond in the Dawn colorway... I need them! I'm designing my soon-to-be-here baby boy's nursery in aqua and (you guessed it) orange, so those colors are spot-on for my project. I see book slings and chair cushions in these fabrics in my future!

Regan said...

ack!!!!

swoon

Drew Hatton said...

Based on the name, I assume this is outdoor-safe fabric? These would make some gorgeous patio chair cushions.

Live a Colorful Life said...

Oh, Jess--this is gorgeous! I'm looking forward to ordering some.

Nanette said...

LOVE!

Yes, please do let us know when they'll be available for retail purchase. I have a similar chair to what is shown in the first pic, and I would LOVE to slipcover it in one of those fabrics!

That is so stinkin' cool! Fantastic job, lady! :)

Carrie said...

Great designs I like the dusk color way especially and my favorites patterns would be Frond and Picket. So lovely.

Anja said...

F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S!!!!!!

Michele said...

Man, you guys need to stop designing cool fabric. I'm going to have to sell a kid.

Anne Magee said...

Beautiful! I especially love the dusk colorway!

WOW...on so many levels! Your newest fabrics are so beautiful.

Also, must mention that it just warms my heart that your mum leaves such wonderful comments here for you. It's clearly a very special bond that you share and it's a privilege to bear witness to it. I have a 4yo daughter and aspire to sonething equally special as she grows.

I can't decide if I like the dawn or dusk better... I just want it all and I'm going to have a hard time waiting till May.

What can I say. I love orange and I love Oslo. But I'm really curious why you chose that name for the collection.
Best wishes from Sol

wildish woman said...

Those are just fabulous!

pi.pa.po. said...

Excellent! I relly like the trees and the flowers. Can't decide whether I prefer the dusk or dawn colours. Both are great!

Olympe said...

Oh my god ! They are so nice ! I love the Dawn colors, especially "Wild Flowers".
I already imagine a little blouse for my son :)

Bek said...

Wow! These are fantastic! Congratulations on your new line :)

Mod Podge Amy said...

Are you serious? My great-grandfather came straight off the boat from Norway. This fabric line is so me. This is why I love you.

Sarah@PingsAndNeedles said...

This is a simply gorgeous line - I love all the colourways ... I'd already bookmarked it on another blog before I realised it was YOU!!!

Wonderful ... can't wait to buy some :)

kimberj said...

I very rarely post about other people's projects/products, mostly because I fear I won't do them justice, but I just had to give a shoutout about your new line! To die for... considering any fat quarter giveaways in May??? Absolutely inspiring :)

selena said...

ack! these are gorgeous! and I am sure they will end up a Target chair one day!

kickpleat said...

So beautiful! I'm in love and can't wait until they're available to purchase.

Mrs. D said...

Gorgeous! ♥

Waiting said...

Love both colorways!
I have actually been looking for modern awesome prints in the Dusk colorway, too bad it is coming out about 2 weeks too late for my use.

ac|dw said...

They're beautiful! Both colorways look great, can't decide which one I like best!

Jess said...

Everyone, thanks for your super compliments! It's always a little scary showing new stuff. I had imagined a scene where my mom left the only comment, and she said, "Well, I don't care for it much, but I love you anyway." You guys are making my day!

I'll share more about the names and stuff in a future post. Have a good weekend!

patricia said...

They look really great. Congratulations Jessica!

Kelly said...

Oober Outstanding for Outside Oslo :)

christy said...

I am so excited - the patterns are gorgeous (I'm Norwegian and therefore hardwired to love everything Scandinavian) and my favorite fabric shop is involved? I'm going to buy a million yards!

Michelle said...

This may well be the most wonderful selection of fabrics I have seen! I love it!

Laura said...

These are gorgeous! Love the dusk colors. Great work, as usual!

Megan said...

Can't wait to see these hit the shelves! These prints (and you) are AMAZING!

Juliana said...

So lovely!

LiEr said...

Mary said...

LOVE IT!!

mrs.lmnop said...

Beautiful! I'm excited for May!

Crystal said...

I certainly understand that the Dawn color palate is very Outside Oslo. However, I think the Dusk array is more Inside Oslo, muted colors and rather concrete junglish. I'm just sayin'.
If you need a test driver in Norway I'm your girl!

Meags said...

Outside Oslo is positively gorgeous. I want to make something out of it right now! I can't wait to get my hands on some.

Nathalie said...

I LOVE them!!!! I want a chair with the Frond from the Dawn collection in my living room... but really, I love them all!
Congratulations on this great achievement!!!

Vickie Howell said...

This is a really fantastic collection. Bookmarking this page now! Best of luck with the line. :)

Shari said...

I love this collection even more than your first....and that's a lot. I cannot wait to get my hands on this fabric!

Sam Doe said...

Rae said...

Congratulations Jess!! Love it.
