BY ANGELA PINGEL
With my debut collection, Curious Dream, I was able to explore one of my favorite characters: Alice. Her illogical experiences in Wonderland have intrigued the curious side of myself. In fact, I think Alice is so beloved by all of us because of the host of characters she encounters. There are condescending flowers, mad queens, a disappearing cat, and of course, that white rabbit. My fabric line is a modern and subtle take on this world and Alice’s adventures. You will find actual text from the book, brief images of Alice, playing cards and that famous white rabbit. I want this line to be loved and used by all, so I made sure that there are plenty of stash worthy fabrics that play well with others. The prints work beautifully together in a soft rainbow of colors. These fabrics will bring any project to life. Dive down the rabbit hole with me and embrace this new take on a beloved tale. Curiouser and Curiouser!
