the fabric of life MICHAEL MILLER

Like I mentioned in my earlier blog, I am in love♡ with Michael Miller fabrics and thought Id share my latest favs. Id love to do something with them in the future!
this first one is called Blocks Italiano from the Alfabeto Italiano Collezione. sigh... I ♥ alphabets...

 Bird of Norway from cute critters
This one is über-pretty and fun- the colors are to die for. or rather- to dye for. (hmm... just reached a new level of dorkdom) but both of these are more detailed than I typically use in my designs so I would probably use them as the backing for the growth charts of something similar. or bibs. they would make rockin bibs.


 The more geometric patterns tend to be more versatile and get used more for the little animals I make, like this one (also MM) feeling groovy and large leafy stripe are 2 that look GREAT together- I used them both on a reversible bib that was SO cute. A good geometric pattern is hard to beat!


BUT BACK TO THE FUN STUFF! now you wanna see something REAL cute? like- hurt cute? check it.
Bunting scallop (in retro line )✃
this gives me the cute-bumps like nothing else... I plan to design a whole range of stuff around this idea (the party flags) which you'll see soon!♡

 apple dot (spring) so simple- SO lovely. and versatile!

 bonehead (grey) I have this print sitting in my drawer just WAITING to be turned into something cool. Love it.


personally, I've always found it easier to design for girls (being one and all- watch me have all boys...) BUT there are a bunch of adorable fabrics for boys (or tom boys!) worth mentioning such as this one called honk honk (aw)
not to mention bicycles (color haze) but this could be both boy/girl. cute-o-meter is off the charts people!!!

and since there was a little boyishness, Id like to finish by evening out the sexes. not sure that makes sense... but GIRLY- YAY!
floral charm (cream)
and this one is zen garden (in sherbert- um hello? sherbert? AWESOME) that I would ♡ to pair with floral charm. perdy...

well, thats plenty of eye candy for one day. next, Ill be showcasing some other designer's fabrics such as Alexander Henry and Kokka... puuurrrrr...
