Monday - Bug City Giveaway

Here we are, at the start of a fresh new week and I am going to walk you through my Bug City fabric collection. (forgive me if I miss a day - real job, you know). 

 Bug City contains five prints with a total of 21 fabrics. Today's print is Beetles! I really enjoyed designing this range, working with bright colours and cute little motifs. There was another print that didn't make the cut - I might show it later in the week if I remember.


Beetles comes in the four colour ways shown below. When I first talked about this range with people I was warned not to add spiders to it but no-one mentioned beetles. This is a great print for clothes, from a distance it looks like little coloured blobs but when you get close you realise it is a bug skirt, or shirt. 


The strong blue is maybe possibly my favourite, although I have used the teal to cover a lamp and it looks awesome. I found that old metal beetle in an op-shop just a few weeks ago and for the princely sum of $5 he had to come home with me.

This is my latest quilt pattern - June bugs. Its a super easy one-block quilt that anyone can sew !! There are little embroidered antennae on each bug that are a bit hard to make out in the photo. 



These gorgeous hair accessories were designed and made by my friend Jemima of Tied with a Ribbon. Jemima is a super talented, hard-working designer, and all round good egg. The mini- pattern for these is available wholesale through Creative abundance or through Jemima's shop. 



Pop a comment in the comment box to go into today's draw. Look at that lovely bunch of goodies.


Happy Monday !

  15. I love the beetles, some look like moths or even flies, they do look great up against that blue ground, they are so brightly coloured they really stand out. Think you should have done spiders, I've seen some great red back spider t-shirts. Maybe not big hairy huntsman spiders... I think you've done very well, even though I do love the cat fabric... and the dog... and the sewing one...

  18. I have fond memories of picking June bugs off of the screen door when I was a kid. Nothing better to do during a long Mississippi summer. Love the stripe as the beetle's bum! Lots of possibilities there.

  40. I love the idea of bug clothing. I did once buy shorts for my kids with fish on just because some of the fish were swimming upside down though! Forever refered to as the ‘dead fish shorts’. I’d fight the kids for bug clothes though.
