The Inspiration Behind Sweet Abigail

The inspiration for this collection came from my daughter Abby. Ever since the day she was born, Abby has been a ray of sunshine!

She is warm, and inviting, and has a gift for getting along well with others. Her reflex is to love people fully, deeply, and quickly. She is a defender of womanhood, a lover of diversity, and sees beauty in everyday moments.

Abby is currently serving an 18-month mission and has been away from home for over a year. Although my mama’s heart is missing her like crazy, I’ve had so much fun thinking of her as I designed this collection. My hope is that it captures the joy, sunshine, and gratitude that embodies my sweet Abigail.

The Beginning Sketches

Each of my fabrics begin with a sketch or a painting. I love exploring colors and shape through good old paper, pencil, and paintbrush.

The Fabric

The fabric is 100% cotton and is made up of 7 prints in various colors. They are perfect for mixing and matching. It consists of florals, ginghams, stars, and girls from all over the world.

I’m loving these deeper shades of midnight blue!

Below is one of my favorite prints in the collection! It features girls from all over the world. I don’t usually sketch people in my designs, but my daughter Abby has a gift for making friends and I knew the collection wouldn’t be complete without it 🙂

Abby’s favorite colors are pink and yellow so I knew they had to be included. I especially love the vintage vibe of the brown and yellow in the bottom floral “flower child”.
