In an underwater world that has been caringly selected and looked after comes this goldfish cotton fabric. “Treading Water” is a delightful nod from the designer Tula Pink to these peaceful pets. The pattern has been created as part of the “Besties” collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics. This collection is designed to celebrate our connection with the animals who we choose to be our companions.

In the “Blossom” colourway, this pattern features bright orange and yellow goldfish swimming in tranquil turquoise water between vibrant pink tank ornaments. This print imagines what it would be like to see the world from a fish’s perspective, surrounded by a lovingly decorated home.

In this colourful water-filled world, the fish seem to be peacefully exploring. Their fins and tails stretched out gracefully behind them as they move, curving gently with the ripples of the water. The lack of bubbles or waves suggests a tranquil gentleness to their movements.

The pink ornaments are typical of what you might find in any goldfish’s tank. Shells in various spiral and fan patterns are lovingly arranged around sunken treasure chests and tall strands of seaweed. Intricate designs on the shells and chest add details and depth. The fronds of seaweed have individual tendrils that float and separate realistically in the water. Inside the chest are a few glittering golden coins. A beautiful playful touch suggesting a habitat where every corner might hold an exciting surprise.

This glimmering gold detailing is also used to add silhouettes of small fish gracefully gliding through the water. Hinting at sunlight reflecting around the tank, reflecting off these iridescent fish. These sparkling accents add a touch of magic to this charming aquatic cotton.

Printed on premium quality cotton, “Treading Water” is perfect for a wide range of projects, from quilting to crafting so you can let your imagination swim free as you decide on the best project to make with this pattern. We think it would be particularly fun to make a goldfish grocery bag, a tank-inspired tunic dress or even a fish-themed floor cushion.

With a width of approximately 110cm (or roughly 43 inches), “Treading Water” is available for purchase by the meter (39 inches) or half a meter (19 ½ inches). Should you need a larger quantity, we will send it out as a continuous piece. If you require a smaller amount, we offer a fat quarter option measuring approximately 55cm x 50cm (around 21 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

So if you’re searching for a fabric that will add a bit of buoyancy to your sewing room, then we hope that this goldfish cotton fabric will add a splash of fun as you create something which is sure to turn out fin-tastic!
