Introducing...The Marvellous, Mysterious, Magical Mr.Pigeon



This is Mr. Pigeon...






This is Mr.Pigeon's top hat...




...and this is Mr.Pigeon's magic wand...







Would you like to see a trick?







This is just an ordinary piece of linen.
BUT...with a wave of his magic wand...

Mr.Pigeon has turned it into...







Pigeon Loft screen-printed fabric!







Ta-dah!







Yes, I am pleased to announce that The Pigeon Loft is branching out into fabrics for all you people who love to sew. This is the first pattern of what I hope will be many and it will be available, printed onto a nice medium weight 100% cotton, next time I am home, which could be in a few weeks' time or could be Easter.


I know hand-printed fabrics can be expensive, but rest assured I will try and keep costs as low as possible.

I am in the process of designing a complementary fabric for 'utensils' which can be used with it. I was thinking of a wonky check or stripe. Let me know what you think. This may also be the time to suggest any other designs/colour combinations you would like to see...*wink wink, nudge nudge*


So, suggest away...

AWESOME!!! Your fabric looks great! I love spots... spots are always good!!! can't wait to see what else you design!! Very impressed! :)

whatsthatfluffinmyhead said...

Ooo! I love the fabric and the green as well. How about Mr Pigeon and/or Ms Hennypenny in various poses / costumes for your next fabric designs?

Perhaps instead of coloured prints on a neutral background, how about white prints on solid coloured fabrics too?

Can't wait till your next update. Yay!! :D

What fantastic bakey fabric. There's some talent in that there loft ( and I'm not entirely sure it's all Mr Pigeon's). That's stunning Charlie.

Fabbo fabric... Gloria and Walter (you know who they are) insist they need an amount for various hen and pigeon accessories. I agree. Where can we buy it? Liz x
