It’s been 105°F here for as long as I can remember, so I’m suspicious that these things you call “winter” and “Christmas” are on the horizon. But the fabric companies say so, and I’ll take their word for it. Here are my favorites so far for this year’s new batch of Christmas fabrics. Above: a mix of (I think) vintage wrapping paper reproductions and original designs from Alexander Henry. See the rest of the collection here.
And these are from Michael Miller’s Funky Christmas. It’s folky yet modern and graphic … and pink! Below, 1930s reproduction master Darlene Zimmerman’s Family Gatherings collection for Robert Kaufman. I like how the coordinates are not overtly Christmas-themed, so in case you fail with your big Christmas sewing plans you can use them year-round. The plaid is perfect, in my book.
