want to feel burning flames when you say my name


Here is a first peek at Acorn Trail, my newest textile collection with Birch Fabrics!

The prints feature florals, bugs, some animal pals you might remember from the Fort Firefly collection, and their happy forest mom Penny, with various designs available in poplin, canvas, knit, and voile. There is even a cut and sew panel so you can make your own softies of some of the characters!

The collection will be out in August, available through & other sellers — you can request to be sent an email notification via Fabricworm when a fabric is released! Photography by Birch Fabrics.


My fabric collection, Fort Firefly, is now available for purchase! I worked with Birch Fabrics to create this line of playful woodland-inspired organic cotton fabrics featuring tree forts, campfires, fireflies, foxes, deer, raccoons, bunnies, and a girl named Penny. I’ll post some photos of the physical fabric this weekend too, so you can get an idea of how it looks in person.

You can buy fabric by the 1/2 yard on Fabricworm, or order it wholesale directly from Birch Fabrics. Also check out the cute craft project tutorials using the fabrics on Birch’s blog! If you order any fabric and do something cool with it, please let me know and send some photos my way! I’ll be collecting all ideas & tutorials on a Pinterest board so that anyone looking for ideas can find them in one place.

Thanks for all of your enthusiastic responses about the collection! I’m happy to be able to share it with you!
