Meet the Gang

Come on over and Meet the Gang, Andover New York's newest fabric line by Marisa for Creative Thursday

Besides from the cutest characters from the gang ( Ruby; Olive; Simone; Sweetie Bear, Lila, Lola and Oscar) it is the rich colours and storybook design that draw me to these fabrics!

I know we have unleashed a inspiring design, when the possibilities of uses are overflowing in my head! So I will release them from in there to you.

My first thought was of a wee jacket with the border print on the outside with the word fabric as the lining. (There is a cute tutorial here

Then I would love to see some cute trousers or capri's in the white flower fabric with the birds as the trim. There is a super simple pattern in the Making Children's Clothes book

The other things I thought of were a sun hat, ipod case (possibly in the border or the above blue print), a bag, a simple quilt, library bag! I will leave the rest of the dreaming up to you. Purchase here
