I don’t think there is anyone in the sewing community that has not heard of the name Tula Pink. Not only is Tula an illustrator, fabric designer, quilter, author, and maker, she is also a Bernina Ambassador who has transformed the sewing world with her quirkiness and love of design. Tula’s unique artistic flair has been featured on fabrics, sewing machines, ribbons, hardware and so much more. To say we are big fans of Tula’s work is truly an understatement.
Tula’s latest range of fabric aptly named Curiouser and Curiouser, features elements from the English fairy tale by Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly Alice in Wonderland). We are obsessed with this range of fabric and have made some projects using these fabrics to inspire and delight.
Firstly we have Patch the Pussycat in our inspiration gallery . This lovely fellow is designed by Pauline of Funky Friends Factory fame. Pattern includes easy step by step instructions and templates but is not recommended for beginner sewers.
As you can see from our sample above, the Cheshire cat fabric in Daydream by Tula was the purrrfect choice, as well as her co-ordinating fabrics for that patchwork look.
Next up we have the fun Zip It Up designed by Annie Unrein of ByAnnie patterns. This handy zippered organiser features pockets made from both mesh and vinyl for easy visibility of your contents.
Again we’ve chosen the Cheshire cat fabric this time in the Wonder colour with Tula’s co-ordinating fabrics. The bright pink zip we paired matched beautifully with the the rich colours of the fabrics.
Lastly in our inspiration gallery, we have one of our wonderful customers quilt block. Deb has made this in the very popular “Oh My Block” class we have each month. This particular block is called Columbian Star and is available to download here from the Art Gallery Fabrics.
Fat quarter bundles are available including Daydream and Wonder colour ways. These bundles really make it easy to co-ordinate your fabrics for projects.
Renaissance Ribbons in the Curiouser and Curiouser range have become a best seller and add a touch of luxury to any project. Use these ribbons to embellish your bag projects, pet collars, lanyards and more for that perfect finishing touch.
If you’re lucky enough to snag one of the Mad Hatter Quilt kits than you are in for a real treat! This gorgeous quilt features fabric ranges Curiouser and Curiouser, True Colors and Cotton Solids by Tula Pink. We love the whimsical tea pots, cups, hats and animals along with the vibrant coloured fabrics.
Pair your quilt with the perfect backing using Tula Pinks Big Buds sateen fabric from the Curiouser range. This is a stunning, large scale print wide back featuring Tula’s big rosebuds along with tossed playing card suit symbols. Perfectly seamless for the BackSide of your Tula Pink Curiouser & Curiouser quilts and other projects!
