I have finished two of my first 6 pillow cases. They are 16*16 inch. Soon I will have all of them ready for sale. The back of the pillow looks like the picture below. It is made of matching color fabric and has a blind closure with 2 buttons and buttonholes and a brand label.

Yesterday evening I got a happy e-mail from Steven, one of the owners of the lovely and fabulous shop The Otherist in Amsterdam,(and also my stockist). A while ago he told me someone from VTwonen had picked 2 of my prints, and there was a chance they could end up in the magazine. I watched the October issue and bought the November issue and sort of gave up after that. But he told me that my Starling and my great Tit are in the December issue!! I am thrilled!!! On page 92 and 107 my two sweeties help the stylist make a lovely point. So get the magazine! Not only for my birds, but also because it is so very inspiring and will give you loads of great ideas!

Here they are!! The fabrics I have designed! They were photographed in the evening so the colors don't really look good, but I am so thrilled about this new endeavour! I just keep looking at the pile of new fabrics. I have already ironed them to test shrinkage and what the color does when it is touched by an iron. It remains lovely and colorful... I cannot wait to get sewing! Above you see the fabric that is going to get turned into a pencil skirt! Below the fabrics that I intend to make a bag from, and perhaps something else.

I dread the back yard with 'undressed' trees and lack of color. But my clever Friend Nicole thought of something. She had my Robin printed on a type of sail fabric. It measures 1 meter square/ over a square yard, and the colors pop!
It withstands the Dutch Autumn weather!
It will liven up my back yard and perhaps more people will miss the summer colors a little less if they look at this English Robin.
