Today I’m sharing with you one of my new fabric collections, Back To School. My Mama and sister are both teachers. (I was also a substitute teacher after college.) So, teachers hold a special place in my heart.  I hope you enjoy the new fabric collection.

I think drawing school supplies was the funnest! I basically pulled out all of my supplies and drew them! Does anybody else geek out over back to school supplies? Or is that just my sister and I? I always loved getting new school supplies at the beginning of school, especially a new box of crayons.

I have a lot of apple designs. They’re one of those things that I can (and do!) draw over and over again.

No back to school collection would be complete without a school bus design.

The Girl Friends are included in this collection. Drawing their little outfits was so fun . . . and the knee socks!!

There’s a fabric panel that’s included the Back to School fabric collection. (It measures approximately 23.5 x 41.5 inches).

        Do you have an idea when this will be available online??


        • kelle says:

          Hi Allison! It should be arriving to stores this month. I’m going to try to get a list of online stores that will be carrying the line because I’ve been receiving lots of inquiries. I’ll be sure to let you know when I find out. Hawthorne Threads states it’s arriving to their store late July. Thanks, Kelle

    I’m looking for back to school fabrics that I can make hair bows with. Are these fabrics the prints on them small enough?

      Hi Vicky, You can take a look at each design here. Scroll to the bottom, where each print is shown. Click on any design and included is a measuring stick which show the scale of the prints on the fabric. Thanks! Kelle
