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.
Is it February already?
With a new year we have lots of new ranges coming to share with you so it’s time to discontinue some of our current ranges.
Firstly we have our gorgeous green Teepee colour way which has now been added to our SALE section.
Prices are up to 60% off , while stocks last so don’t wait around.
So I couldn’t wait to share with you some of our styling of the our beautiful girls Teepee range.
It’s such a change to style for a girls look and we went for it with this bohemian garden scene.
All items are available in store ( except the crochet items) and if you are interested in a king single patchwork coverlet/quilt pls email us to join the xmas waitlist.
Creating an elephant nursery? We have you covered.
Our much anticipated yellow and grey elephant baby nursery range is now in stock. We currently have the XL patchwork cot quilt (100x130cm), bunting and the cute patchwork lumbar style cushion cover.
We are also have some new elephant toys and garlands to match our new sunny yellow as well as some cot sheets and cushions in the fun new spotty print.
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.

Good morning everyone….. hows the weather hey?? We have gone from a glorious summer like spring to winter today..brr.
But in better news…did you know that this weekend marks Alphabet Monkey turning 4?? Yes it was four years ago when I first set up my Etsy shop. Wow I couldn’t hardly even upload a photo back then and Campbell was only about 9 months old. Wow how much has changed in that time.
Well to celebrate we will be having a 4 day SALE in our online store.
We will be offering 25% off our entire Ashkii/Brave and Storm Range from 9am Thursday 16 (yes tomorrow) until midnight on Sunday 19 Aust EST. So if you haven’t had a chance to grab any yet or want to add to what you have now is the time.
Other items ( like our elephants) that are not included in the sale will still be available in our Etsy store.
All our prints are available as quilts , cushions and fitted sheets.
Ashkii Single bed quilt cover has black arrows on the back..mix and match with our pillowcases and cushions
Our Storm range is also available as an XL boori size patchwork quilt as well as the modern quilt style pictured.

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.

I received this beautiful feedback photo from Hayley this week which features her precious newborn bundle with her Alphabet Monkey quilt is the background.
Its such a lovely shot , taken by Shannon Richmond Photography. It makes me wonder why I never got around to having Campbells newborn picture done. And then I wanted one while he was little ..like a family shot..but still no photoshoot has taken place. Now he is going on five and I think..where did that time go? But thanks to this age of camera phones we have so many pics documenting every little thing he did so I guess thats ok.
Now with number two on the way I will definitely get something done. A shot of baby with his big brother will be cute.
I think that this photo idea would also make a great birth announcement for those who are organised enough to do them..maybe add some text to the left over the quilt with all the birth details.
UPDATE… We are expected our shipment of the Ashkii and Storm any moment..its currently stuck at customs..aahhh.
