Ta Da!!

It’s here! My 4th (and favorite so far!) fabric collection that will be shipping to stores in January 2014 with Michael Miller Fabrics! I have so much I want to share about this collection, it’s hard to put as much as I want to in one post. But let’s have a go at it…..

Creating a fabric collection is like putting together a puzzle from your soul. I have a feeling or a set of colors and images, and I want to tell a story with it…one that resonates on multiple levels. I think about the child, and their interpretation of the illustration. I think about the quilter, and needing to cut up fabric freely. I think about the apparel sewer, and needing something that works on a large surface. I think about the mom who is going to redecorate their child’s space and needs lots of inspiration and lots of pieces to make her space work. I think about what colors are trending, but that also tell my story authentically. And so many more questions. But like I said, it all starts from a feeling and this collection comes from my own childhood memories of playing outside and wandering through the meadows and woods behind my house, with the only curfew being supper time. Wandering without boundaries. Daydreaming without having to be reeled in. Staying up past dark on summer nights to catch fireflies. And watch the twinkling trees in the distance.

Wee Wander:  It’s a play on words. It’s a “little” wander, or let’s all go on a wander.

All these feelings and images are part of my childhood, and it was so magical to recreate that into a collection of fabric that I think resonates with every child. A sense of wonder, wander and whimsicality that we all (I hope) still recall those carefree days of childhood.

The collection comes in 2 color ways, Sunrise & Twilight with 21 pieces total….including, as always, a super whimsical and magical border print. All the colors reflect both the vibrancy of outdoor play as well as the softness of innocent childhood. I love this collection because it can cross over both ways: bright and soft.

Wee Wander will be shipping in January, so I’ll be featuring lots of projects starting closer to when it will be in stores. So, I get to trickle lots in over a long while! I’ll be giving you free quilt patterns, free clothing patterns and embroidery patterns to match! I’m itching to get my hands working on this. And I can’t wait to see what you create with it!

This fabric is available through Michael Miller Fabrics.

  • Polly @ Pieces by Polly

    I don’t know if anything will compete in my heart for your Rocket Launch Club Children at Play line (we particularly love Physics and rocket science around here) …but this line is definitely my favorite since then. REALLY love those firefly fabrics.

  • Brooke Sellmann

    Love, love this line!
    It was a pleasure to visit with you and your sweet hubby at Market.

    Lovely!! I think this might be my favourite so far!

  • Jeannie

    Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more fabric-I see some I just have to have for precious grandchildren!

  • Ana Sofia

    Lovely!
    You’re truly gifted in the way you capture childhood – it’s feel like we’re travelling back in time to when we were young … Magical, indeed :)

  • Laura J.

    I’m freakin’ out over here! I can’t wait for January! I would love it if you would put your work into a huge, full-color book for my daughter to just get lost in. Doesn’t even need words. Just your illustrations and her imagination!

    • kristin marvin

      I love what you said Laura! Isn’t it so true that her work/drawings/fabric lines tell a story!

    • Tabitha Myers

      Oh my, a book would be lovely! I agree with Laura!

  • kristin

    I just LOVE it, Sarah! Can’t wait to get my hands on some.

  • kristin marvin

    BEAUTIFUL! The colors are vivid and soft, the images are whimsical and so sweet. The colors are blowing me away. I can’t wait to see these prints and colors in person. Another job VERY, VERY well done :) Thank you for making these beautiful fabrics that we (fabric freaks) can adore and play with!

  • Melinda Peterson

    I love you. I love what you do and everything about you. Can’t even stand it. Bliss.

    I love this, so whimsical and fun!

  • daisyandjack

    oh my – I want to make a skirt for me in that fabric – you’re never too old right ?!?!?! another absolutely gorgeous collection – love it :)

  • Lauren Deel

    I can hardly begin to tell you how much I love this line! I have been smitten ever since I saw pictures of your Quilt Market booth pop up on Instagram. It will definitely be an exercise in patience to wait till January to start creating with it. But what to make? My kids’ rooms are already decked out in Children at Play! Do you think my husband might allow for a master bedroom re-do? Me, neither :(

    Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful creations with us.

    So, so, so gorgeous! Dreamy and gorgeous and happy. It’s going to be tough to choose which ones I buy- I wish I could afford to get them all, in both colourways! I see a little girl with a firefly-collecting dress in her future!
