Banana Tree (February 2021 Collection)


Sewing Bee Fabrics And Haberdashery Shop


With a bold and tropical sunset feel, “Banana Tree” is a large leafy cotton print that is guaranteed to catch attention however you choose to use it! Designed by Kaffe Fassett, for Free Spirit Fabrics as part of the February 2021 Collection, this vibrant cotton fabric is just waiting to be sewn up into something special.

In this pattern, the banana trees create a lush leafy landscape shooting up as high as the fabric will let it. With the direction of the trees travelling with the length of the fabric, these trees are as tall as you want them to be! Illustrated in warm yellows and firey oranges, with blue highlights on the trunk, the leaves twist and fall out from the trunk like a gentle breeze is rustling around them. They aren’t all perfect leaves like an idyllic tropical paradise. Some leaves are torn, and some missing the tips, suggesting that this tree has made it through the storms and has come out stronger and more resilient, still standing tall. This idea might resonate with anyone who wants to remind themselves to keep going through tough times.

The leaves create a striking contrast to the bright red background behind them, while small little pink clouds float along in the background. With the undersides of the clouds lighter than the tops, and all the warm colouring used for the sky and trees, it suggests that the sun is setting after this stormy day, like the end of a dramatic chapter, ready for the happy ending.

FreeSpirit Fabrics are known for their high-quality cotton and premium printing techniques, so this cotton is well suited to a wide range of sewing projects from quilting to crafting. We think this pattern would be particularly fun to use it to make a banana print blouse, a tropical table runner or even a leafy laundry bag.

This fabric measures approximately 110cm (43 inches) in width and is available in various sizes. At the full width, you can purchase by the meter (39 ⅓ inches), half a meter (19 ½ inches), or by the skinny quarter, which measures approximately 25cm (9.8 inches). Any combination of these lengths or multiple quantities will be sent as a continuous piece. We also have a fat quarter size, measuring approximately 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

So if you want your next creative project to have a strong and striking tropical feel, then we hope that this banana tree cotton fabric will help you get a big bunch of compliments on your sewing!
