We put the FUN in Fabric!

Have you seen the Find the Panda craze?  It’s just that – a bit crazy!!!  Here’s a link to it in case you haven’t seen it… PANDA!

We have our own version of this puzzle in our Ink & Arrow designs.   Hidden inside each fabric is a little motif!  Look for an I&A, Ink & Arrow (words) or  Arrow motif  in our fabrics!!!  WHY????  Well,  it’s a little something… something… just to make it extra FUN!

Take a peek at these fabrics and see if you can find the hidden icon?

What’s even more fun??? How about making an I spy project?!?!?!

How about a shirt that has a pocket featuring the hidden icon – see if anyone notices?  Or, a quilt with the hidden icon here and there.   Just have fun with it and remember that there are no rules, just great fabrics!!!   We hope you enjoy…

Also feel free to stop by our website, inkandarrowfabrics.com and submit a photo of a project you created with our fabrics!!!

 

 

Hello…

How could we resist this?  I mean, our new collection, Talk to Me  is arriving in your favorite fabric store right now!!!

It’s super exciting and we want to celebrate with one of our favorite versions of this most appropriate song!  Adele’s Hello!  (The Quirky version ;))

I was at a local flea market a year or so ago and a little boy, aged 8-ish, saw a rotary telephone.   He turned to his mom and said “What IS that thing? It looks like a phone but what is THAT?”  as he pointed to the rotary dial.   I aged a good 15 years that moment!  🙂

Nostalgia is alive and well.  What is old is new again!   We can appreciate the kitsch of rotary phones, typewriters and television sets in this fantastic new collection from Alicia Jacobs!  How divine!  I just adore the colors and the nod to retro communication devices!!!  One day, in the future, there will be a fabric collection with smart phones and laptops and flat screens and we will laugh and remember how silly it was to use those!

Until then, enjoy this ensemble of fabulously fun fabrics! Click to view the whole collection on our website!
