I’ve been in the studio lately and I’ve been busy.
Getting back to basics of what I do and assessing what I love about Alphabet Monkey.
I’ve been in the studio lately and I’ve been busy.
Getting back to basics of what I do and assessing what I love about Alphabet Monkey.
I’ve long been a fan of green in boys rooms and so when emerald was announced as the Pantone colour of the Year two years ago I expected to see more of it around. Well it has been filtering through interior design and now I’m starting to see more and more accents of green added to the monochromatic spaces of kids that we all seem to love.
And I do love it with the mint…so fresh. Are you a fan of green or not so much? I think it will continue to grow as I’ve noticed another trend which we talk more about another day..and that is cactus.
So we have taken some fresh new shots of our Ashkii Range..I’ve loved how you guys have mixed and matched it all and I’ve loved seeing your photos in Instagram and when you email or Facebook them through to me. It’s awesome!!
Of course there is a lovely dash of the black and white arrow print on the reverse so you can fold it back and change your look.
It’s available in Single and Cot Size as a quilt cover set..so it includes a cover and a pillowcase. They are quilt covers so you they are great for the warmer weather as you need to put your insert inside.
We also have more of our Little Teepee and Teepee Triangle (shown below) prints back in store in fitted cot sheets and cushion covers but after this lot I think we will be moving onto some new colour combos. And we are also making it easier for you to add to your collection by offering $20 off when you buy 2 sheets..Just use code : DOUBLEUP at the checkout. This will be an ongoing offer.
Its great to have patterned sheets on the bed to catch little moments like these chubby legs or when your bub just wakes up and gives out those big smiles. My daughter does this and my son runs in after each nap time to see it. Just grab your phone and take a pic against your super cool sheet and you have an awesome pic just ready to send to your friends and family..yes baby spam them all I say..hehe
Also in case you didn’t realise, we now offer gift vouchers( as pictured below). We can express post out a physical voucher as its always nice to have something to give..even when you have left it to the last minute. Or if you prefer we can email a digital version which we will create and send after purchase.
Wishing you all a great weekend whatever you are up to…

We love this mix of geometric patterns modernising the traditional nautical look.
It’s so easy to work a nautical nursery so many different ways. This modern concept is all about pattern and colour but still mixing the good old shades of blues, navy and grey which are at home in any boys nursery. Pair it with white furniture for a light bright feel or go more rustic with weathered timber styles.
Mixed below with one of our custom name cushions in navy..you can personalise you little ones space.

I just wanted to do an update on the Brave Arrow Indian nursery range. It has been a very popular design..probably because of the current trend for black and white nurseries as well as it’s simplicity.
Our quilt is back in stock as pictured here..black on the front with white with black arrows on the back. The Arrow cushion and the sheet are expected to be back in stock this month sometime.
And in other news I am testing samples in grey and white too so I’m hoping to add those to the Arrow range in the next few months.
Below is a sample of a cot sized quilt cover which we will also have arriving soon. Perfect for that stage between a cot quilt and moving into a big bed. Enables you to pop an insert inside for the cooler weather.
And like our Single bed quilt cover it is also reversible. this one features the Little Teepee with Tree print on the reverse side. It is piped around all edges and our fabrics are screen printed by hand onto a beautiful soft quality poplin which washes up beautifully. And best of all the blacks are strong and true and don’t fade after a couple of washes..a problem I had previously found with other fabrics and printers.
And of course our popular Ashkii single bed quilt cover set will be back in stock this month too so we will let you know when it is. Featuring the black arrow on one side and the modern Teepee Triangle geometric print on the other.

I restocked the store with some more of these yellow and grey Pachy the elephant quilts and thought I had better let you know as they may be the last for the year. The trend for yellow and grey in the nursery seems to be as strong as ever..it really is a great gender neutral choice. We have looked at this cute colour combo before here and here.
I am planning to do some more in the blue and grey in the next couple of weeks however after that I really need to start packing up my sewing gear to make room for the nursery for the new baby. The need for nesting is totally kicking in. I’ll share some of my nursery ideas and inspiration here too.
Im starting to get the aches and pains of pregnancy so I’m going to be on the machine less but we will also soon have our new Elephant range in mint and grey arriving. This will mark the changeover between me sewing them and having my Indonesian co-op create them for me.
This will allow me to continue creating new designs for you a while while I tend to baby number two. My goodness…its coming up so fast!!
And we also have these cute little elephant toys and bunting ready to go with it. You can also find we have some grey chevron fitted sheets and lumbar cushions that will also compliment the range if you were looking for extras.
And just a reminder that our Pachy elephant range in mint and grey will be arriving in December. We have already sold half of our quilt stock so if you hanging off till they arrive don’t wait too long. They are currently available for preorder in our online store.
PS I’ve also set up a new code for those of you wanting to buy a package deal…..just enter code ‘SAVE10’ at our checkout and you will save 10% off orders over $350.

I wanted to share with you the lovely new photographs of our upcoming Pachy the Elephant nursery range in mint green and grey.
They are currently available for preorder and are proving quite popular so far.
The photos were taken for us by local photographer Jade Flores of Jade Flores Photography. Jade is very clever and specialises in portrait photography.
As you can see the quilt is a generous size tucking right down on a standard size mattress..but it should be great for a boori size also but just not tucking down quite as far.
The range includes the quilt with our signature hand stitched felt appliqué elephants. The inner is 100% natural cotton and has a lovely drape. It has a little more weight in it than dacron or polyester type batting but I think it actually feels a little more substantial and adds to making a high quality product. That is why I’ve stuck with it instead of switching to cheaper options..I think you will feel the difference.
So other items in the range include the patch cushion cover, the chevron cushion cover, the bunting flags, the little elephant toy buntings, the hand made elephant toy and it also matches with our grey chevron fitted sheet which coordinates with all our current ranges.
Of course all these items are also available individually.

So I’d like to show you some sneaky first pics of our new mint and grey Pachy elephant range. The elephants continue to be so popular so we decided to create a new colour way. The mint and grey is just perfect for a gender neutral nursery.
Our range will include the quilt with hand stitched felt elephants, a matching patchwork style cushion cover. There is also bunting flags and co-ordinating chevron sheet and pillow.
We have also included the super cute elephant bunting and Pachy the elephant toy as finishing touches for your nursery..or just as lovely gifts for a new baby. These have all been designed and made exclusively for Alphabet Monkey by our clever fair trade artisans in Indonesia.
We will begin taking preorders very soon and will offer a discount on a full set. I hope that they will be ready for December delivery but that will be confirmed later.

So in all the excitement of introducing the new Ashkii Teepee inspired range I realised I had completely overlooked sharing with you the updated Stormy Collection.
We can now offer a bigger range of co ordinating items for the Stormy collection to cater for your nursery or your move into a big bed. Range includes cot fitted sheets, bunting, cushion covers, single quilt cover, cot quilt and swaddles. i am so happy with the quality of all the fabrics and the finishes. As with the Ashkii range..these are our own exclusive designs which are screen printed by hand and then made up by talented artisans in Indonesia.
Look at this adorable bundle below..Storm Organic swaddle pictured on the Black Raindrop fitted sheet. Both the sheet and the swaddle are also available in soft grey..great for unisex.
The single bed quilt cover can be used on the reverse for a cool black and white vibe, as pictured below.
All items have been available for preorder but the stock should be here next week so any orders will go out very soon. You can check out the range here.
