Who’s Your Dandy – Tiny Beasts – Glimmer
£4.99 – £15.99
“Who’s Your Dandy” is a spellbinding cotton fabric, designed by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics. From the “Tiny Beast” collection, this pattern thrives in a twilight “Glimmer” colourway, a palette that echoes nature just before stars claim the sky.
The navy blue canvas, deep and expansive, draws you in and sets the stage for the little green hedgehogs that adorn it. Hedgehogs, in their natural state, are a prickly affair, but in Tula’s wonderous world, they’re transformed into dreamy, magical creatures. Instead of traditional spikes, these little critters have dandelion seeds swaying in the wind on their backs, like little wishes waiting to be made. Some of the dandelion seeds have already taken flight on a gentle breeze away from the hedgehogs’ bodies, creating a sense of movement and freedom. Replacing spikes with dandelion seeds is pure Tula magic – marrying the unexpected with the familiar in a fantasy world full of imagination.
Nestled around these woodland creatures are lush purple leaves, adding depth and texture, a shadowy forest through which our dandy hedgehogs are meandering. Small pink flowers punctuate the design like little bursts of joy, their vibrant hue contrasting beautifully with the deep navy. Tiny green butterflies, with the occasional lilac one, flit about, their delicate wings aflutter, adding an extra dimension of enchantment and movement.
Spanning approximately 110cm (or about 43 inches) in width, this magical fabric is available in various dimensions: from a full metre (39 inches) to a half metre (19 ½ inches), and even a charming fat quarter size of 55cm x 50cm (or about 21 ½ x 19 ½ inches). Acquire it by the metre or half a metre at full width, and be comforted in the knowledge that multiple purchases will be sent out as one seamless piece.
This cotton is just as versatile as it is beautiful. From woodland-themed dresses to dandelion-inspired shirts, this pattern will help to create a magical dressmaking touch. Or if you are a quilter, then these harmonious hedgehogs heading in alternate directions would be perfect for spacing out in all sorts of quilting shapes, with a gentle colour combination that would complement a whole host of other fabrics. Or maybe you are a crafter who is contemplating creating cushions, curtains, or clutch bags. This fabric is bound to help your designs stand out.
So, if you’re in the mood for a fabric that is both a conversation starter and a centrepiece or you’re looking for a hedge-hug of inspiration, the we hope that “Who’s Your Dandy” will help you make the perfect next sewing project.
