Yellow Elephant Cot quilts

Yellow Pachy Elephant quilt by Alphabet Monkey

Morning,

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.

Elephant Nursery Range

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.

Sneak Peek… Free gift with purchase and new products

new products..elephant toy and garlands

Good Morning and Happy Monday..

I hope you all had a lovely Mothers Day yesterday.  I got to sleep in and we all laid in bed together reading papers and having breakfast without a care in the world…now that was something I don’t think I’ve done in years.

Sometimes I think the best present you can have is some alone time..but thats really in the mothers day spirit is it..hehe.

This morning I wanted to give you a little sneak peek of our new elephant products. I have some new blue/grey and yellow fabrics so I’m currently making up some new elephant quilt prototypes..such as this blue and grey one seen in the picture above.  And the new quilt colours will also have some new little products ..a gorgeous little elephant toy and my favourite…a little elephant garland to hang where ever you want.  There are five elephants in each garland, each one so teeny tiny.

They will be available in the blue as pictured and also in the yellow and grey.  I think they will arriving at the end of the month. You can secure yours now here.

And now to clouds…. I have announced a free felt cloud pillow with any cloud quilt purchase in May.  We do actually have a couple of the blue and aqua quilt ready to ship.

The aqua, grey and yellow modern patch style is also available ready to ship.  I have only five of these.  As a special blog reader I am happy to offer you a little cloud pillow with any quilt order at all..just mention it when you purchase.

Update..yellow and grey elephants

yellow nursery ideas featuring alphabet monkey elephant quilt

Morning all,

Just wanted to give you a quick update to let you know where I’m at.   I have made up a new 1014 version of the yellow and grey elephant quilt and am now taking orders here.  I know many of you have been waiting on this.

I do also have some small yellow chevron on its way so it will also be incorporated into the quilt.  I’m sorry its taken me so long but I’ve been feeling frustrated and anxious this month waiting for people to deliver on promises made in regards to fabric supply and samples for our new ranges.  I am just so keen to get them all out there to you .  But this has to be a lesson in patience I guess..something I’m not that great at.

So I will continue to keep you up to date with things as soon as I know things are actually happening..aahh!!

I did make you this little board to show you the quilt patterns.. And some cute items for a yellow and grey nursery.

Just thought I’d keep you up to date with this super limited quilt set that I have just listed in my etsy store.
I know a lot of you are waiting for more of the yellow and grey appliqué elephant quilts like this. I am going to be making more but i am still waiting on a bulk supply of grey and yellow fabric from a new supplier. I’ll let you know when I know.

Anyway I’ve been going through trying to use up fabric that I have small amounts of. There are three of these sets available and you can check them out here.

Circus Trend

Have you noticed circus motifs popping up everywhere…I have noticed especially a vintage circus vibe used often in kids fashion, products and interiors.

vintage circus

I was given this vintage look circus print fabric by a friend and thought I might just incorporate it into the elephant quilts. I feel like this would mix in well in the sort of nursery with a lot of mismatched vintage and recycled pieces.

I think that an understated circus vibe would be so great for either a girl or boy and I would definitely recommend searching on etsy for vintage circus toys or posters to add a little special touch.

I have put together a circus inspired pin board on pinterest with lots of circus inspiration as well as circus nurseries too. Oh and some really gorgeous modern wallpapers too.
You can check out the Circus Trend board here as well as find the sources for all images used.

Red and Aqua Elephants..

I have made this fresh and fun red and aqua colour combination many times before with the whale motif but after a customer request for the elephant it turned out so cute I wondered why I hadn’t thought to do it earlier.

I thought I would share it with you and I have just listed it in my etsy shop to accept orders.

How has your week been so far?  We are having a run of gorgeous autumn days here and I’m so glad I got myself out for a walk this morning.  It just makes you feel good for the day.

I decided to walk Cam and the pup down to my mums’ and we walked down via the harbour and foreshore and it was just a stunning morning.  Sunny, mild, calm seas sparking away.  When I was walking home I was thinking about how lucky I am to be able to wander back home to start my work day.  Then when I saw all I had to do I felt a little overwhelmed, but then I thought, Wow! I am so grateful that all these lovely mums to be out there choose me to create for them and allow me to grow my own little business.

So then I got to work..lots of cutting and putting things together.  And lots of hand stitching for me in front of the TV tonight.

Do you work from home with the kids, do you aspire to do something to allow you to stay home with the kids or are you counting down the days to head back to the ‘real world’ (in the nicest possible way)?

Baby Elephant Walk… nursery inspirations

Yes, yes we are looking at elephants again!!!!

I have been working on so many elephant orders lately and half of them are in this colour palette that I thought I’d make up a little inspiration board for you all with some gorgeous pieces that you may want to add into your nursery design.

The yellow and grey colour palette just keeps growing in popularity..and why not?   Its modern , it can be interpreted so many ways ..soft, vintage, modern, strong… and best of all it is ideal for a unisex nursery.

If you are looking for unisex nursery ideas don’t forget to visit my unisex nursery board on pinterest

Yellow and Grey elephant nursery trend.

And here is a little first peek at a giraffe version I have just completed for a special baby…many motifs that I have done before can be customised in other palettes for a small cost.

It is usually possible to create something in colour schemes the same as other quilts I have done…there’s no harm to ask as you never know what i have in my stash or what may inspire me.
