This purple fairy cotton fabric is the creation of Color Principle for Henry Glass & Co. Set in an enchanted purple world, this is a pattern where fairy silhouettes dance and play amongst the butterflies.

The serene lilac backdrop is like the soft hues of dawn. This magical time of day is in keeping with so many of the traditional fairytales and folklore. With a watercolour paint effect, the different purple shades blend in and out of each other suggesting early morning sunlight catching the fairies and butterflies as they flitter through the air.

Playful purple dots are sprinkled between the fairies. Maybe they are suggestions of bubbles or reflections from water, stars still in the sky, or maybe even a gentle shimmer of fireflies. Depending on what fabrics you pair it with, your imagination can make these fun spots add even more magic to the scene.

The graceful silhouettes of fairies are captured in various positions as they flutter through the air. Some have wings outstretched with their wands ready in their hands while others appear to be pirouetting mid-air as if dancing, laughing and playing. Another fairy is almost sitting in the air with her hand outstretched as if waiting for the nearby butterfly to land on it.

Butterflies add an extra layer of charm to this enchanting scene. Their wings, too, bear the same mystical watercolour tones of the fairies, suggesting a shared magic between them.

The entire scene is sprinkled with a dusting of small, soft, white polka dots, which adds even more magic and mystery to the scene. Alongside the larger purple dots, these little dots add extra feelings of depth and movement to the image, as if the very air of this enchanted forest is alive with the pulse of unseen magic.

Measuring approximately 110cm (43 inches) in width, “Fairy Silhouettes” is available by the metre (39 ⅓ inches) or half a metre (19 ½ inches). Multiple quantities will be sent as a continuous length. It’s also available as a fat quarter, measuring approximately 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches) if you only need a smaller amount.

This fabric is perfect for a wide range of sewing projects. But we think these dreamy fairies would be so fun to use make some enchanted English paper pieced quilt blocks, fairytale fabric baskets to keep a children’s room tidy or even a little girl’s magical maxi dress.

So, if your next sewing project needs a little fairy magic to help it on its way, then we hope that this fairy cotton fabric will help your creativity flutter with delight!
