Printed Organic Kids

We have now printed our Pets and Bones design on lovely muslin, suitable for infants and children's wear. Also ideal for cot sheets or baby slings. The woven fabric is 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton and is incredibly soft. The hemp has the added bonus of being naturally antibacterial and antifungal even after repeated washings.

The design is a collaboration between graphic designer Liz Christiansen and Thea Samios and is now available in our on-line store.










Available in Lolly Pink or Jelly Green, the print is a generous 145 cm ( 57 inches) in width. I have decided to give away 1/2 metre of each of these to two followers to sew, test and promote the finished product on this blog. This will be instead of my usual monthly giveaway. To clarify, each successful follower will receive one of the coloured fabrics each.










There is a condition in entering this giveaway. The children's garment or product must be completed within 2 weeks of receiving the muslin and will remain in the property of the maker. The maker will provide a photo, preferably on a model. Please do not enter if you cannot meet these requirements. While I appreciate how busy we all are, you can also understand that it is of no benefit if the project remains unfinished for 6 months.

If you are willing and able to meet the requirements, please leave your comments with colour preference (green or pink) below by Friday and I will ship the fabric early next week to two of you.

The design is still available in organic cotton jersey in our store. The jersey fabric is NOT included in the giveaway.

UPDATE: The winners are Petra of Mooce Baby (pink) and Michelle (green) of Buttontree Lane. I can't wait to see what you make, ladies!

I'm willing and able. I'm seeing some little boys' shorts or capri pants... I think my boys would love them!!! My preference would be the B&W.

Note: The giveaway is for the new muslin fabric only. We have already had Mooce Baby use the jerseys for her own line of baby pants.

Thea, I can't say no to this! Great idea! If given the chance to participate, I would like to do something for the girls this time. I would like to use the hot pink print but would probably mix it with basic pink material as well(may be).... love the green one too.

I love this fabric! So much fun! I'd love to participate - I would probably make a lunch sack and a pair of shorts or a kid's apron, depending on how much fabric I had left (with 145 cm wide, I'd be thinking quite a bit would be left from half a metre!)

Michelle said...

Sorry, meant to add that either green or pink I'd be happy with - love them both equally!

I'm sure my boys would love it if I made something from the b&w fabric for them! (well - for one of them) So count me in!

Linda Robertus said...

Oops, sorry - didn't read very well. Would love some of the green fabric to make something for the boys.
