Drool-worthy Design: Saffron Craig textiles

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I'm seeing heart motifs all over the place, but this particular design (pictured above left) caught my eye. Sydney-based Saffron Craig's hand printed textiles are youthful and fresh, and this heart print with fairies would be perfect for a child's craft project - maybe a bandana, or an apron dress, or a backpack. I can also imagine it on a lamp shade, throw pillow or laundry sack in an all-white nursery.

Saffron is a master of children's fabric design, but she also creates a range of chic nature-inspired textiles for grown-ups, quilt kits, and handmade products including girls' dresses (like the delightful one pictured above right). I just have to mention the funky owl and dinosaur softie craft panels that would be especially good for anyone new to sewing.

You can find Saffron Craig goodies at the online store as well as various stockists. Find out more about the projects that inspire Saffron on her blog. (and a shout-out here to her husband Patrick, too, who is an integral part of the design team).
