Now in Stores | Fanciful by Rae Hoekstra

“Fanciful is a homage to blooms and blossoms, inspired by my late grandmother, Grace, who loved all things floral and fancy, especially roses. Her style influenced my love of color, fashion, and design from an early age. She loved dressing up in bright floral prints, had an impressive collection of elegant hand-painted floral teacups and a house full of artificial floral arrangements.

This collection is a celebration of the shapes, lines, and colors of those plant kingdom standouts and I feel certain Grandma would approve of this collection of prints, which offers a more sophisticated turn from my previous collections.”

Now in Stores | Sidewalk by Rae Hoekstra

There’s still a little time for holiday making! Sidewalk, by Rae Hoekstra, is an ode to the sunny afternoon walk home from school, when the weather is warm and the air smells of freshly cut grass. This colorful collection of interlock prints depicts the sights of a carefree amble through the neighborhood.

Here’s a whole lot of inspiration from the Made by Rae team – check out her blog for details and pattern info.
