New Fabric Collection: Tropical Harvest

I am so excited to share my newest collection, Tropical Harvest! It is a hodgepodge of inspiration with elements from personal photographs, doodles, vintage ads, and simple shapes, all pulled together with a beautiful color palette.  


This is the focal print and star of the collection. I wanted this collection to have a subtle vintage vibe to it, so I began by researching magazine ads from the 1920s – 1970s online. Flickr is one of my favorite archives for vintage imagery, and I found a lot of great inspiration there.


I fell in love with the colors in the German advertisement above, and the sun shape was inspired by the Parliament ad below.


Most of the other shapes are simple sketches I made on my Ipad, except for the light purple shapes floating through the design which were inspired by a photograph I took of a pinecone!


After playing with the composition of the pattern and putting everything together, it was time to pull it apart again to create the companion prints.

I also created this fun little pattern filled room to test out how the patterns flow together.


This little collection was such a joy to create, I hope you love it too!
