I have always had a huge love for fabrics and pattern mixing. When my son, David, was born (many moons ago), I had trouble finding a fabric that was just right for his nursery. As I began thinking of ideas for a new Free Spirit baby boy collection, I wanted to create something that would make you and your baby feel happy. Foxes riding bikes seemed to be the perfect subject to start out with and it just naturally developed into a collection using fun color combinations and patterns.
Foxes and their woodland friends can be found riding bicycles, driving cars, and posing in hand painted picture frames. These fun foxes are just what I would have wanted to create everything from bedding to pillows to curtains in my son’s room. There are also small scale coordinate patterns like chevrons and wobbly polka dots that would make fun mini-flag bunting, or for trim around a pillow.
The hand drawn animals with big personalities could even be fussy-cut and adhered onto a onesie or jacket for a quick, simple embellishment. In my studio, we used the multicolored collection to create a special little teepee that’s perfect for hiding out on a rainy day. Fox Playground comes in a variety of color ways, so you can play around with mixing and matching the patterns together. I hope you enjoy it!
