If you love the pull of the ocean then you’ll want to dive right in to this “Happy Orca” fabric. This cotton has been produced by Michael Miller Fabrics, as part of their “Jewels of the Sea” collection. This delightful fabric features a pod of Orcas joyfully swimming together amidst the refreshing aqua-blue sea, complimented by the subtle tones of turquoise and blue coral, and sprinkled with clusters of intricately designed shells.

Staying true to the high quality of all Michael Miller fabrics, this cotton material boasts superior quality fibres that lend it a soft touch, breathability, and durability. It’s a versatile choice for many sewing projects, spanning from fashion, like breezy summer seaside dresses, or smart ocean-loving shirts, to wildlife-filled quilts, or lively cushion covers, aquatic bags, sea-themed bedding and more.

The fabric measures approximately 110cm (or about 43 inches) in width, with a fat quarter size option that measures 55cm x 50cm (or about 21 ½ x 19 ½ inches). It is available by the metre or half a metre at full width and multiple quantities of these will be sent as continuous pieces.

Killer whales, or orcas as they are also known, are one of the most powerful and intelligent creatures in the ocean. Their distinctive black and white markings, combined with their size and strength, have made them an icon of the sea. The “Happy Orca” fabric captures their elegance and playful intelligence in this lively cotton. Each orca swimming across the fabric embodies a sense of joy and freedom that’s inherently inspiring, while the surrounding sea elements — the calming aqua blue hues, the subtle turquoise and blue corals, and the clustered shells — remind us of the beauty and mystery of the sea.

Orcas’ social nature and complex communication skills reveal a sophisticated intelligence that fascinates researchers and sea lovers alike. This cotton fabric with killer whales swimming together offers a beautiful image of harmony, playfulness, and camaraderie, helping to capture the lively essence of these magnificent sea creatures.

If you’re looking to make your creations ripple with the fun of the sea then this richly coloured blue cotton, paired with the cheerfulness of the Orcas, makes for a beautiful and eye-catching fabric, which is sure to help you bring a burst of joy to any sewing creation.
