Sunday Stash this week features two more 2015 Cotton + Steel Collections (see the first two collections here ~ Picnic and Lucky Strikes). First up is Paper Bandana by Alexia Abegg; a collection inspired by Kirigami, a Japanese paper cutting craft.

Paper Bandana features painted and hand drawn geometric motifs for an earthy, handmade look. The unbleached cotton prints and low volume designs complement the warmer and more saturated colors perfectly.

The adorable tiny Panda Bears are a favorite! I love the mix of vibrant larger scale prints and whimsical designs. As always they all blend well with previous Cotton + Steel collections.

Honeymoon is Sarah Watts' latest collection for Cotton + Steel, and it is based on the sketches she made on her Honeymoon to Costa Rica. They playfully capture the lush landscape of a romantic and colorful jungle full of hummingbirds, iguanas, sloths, toucans, wild horses, and hot springs.

I always enjoy seeing how despite the designers vastly different and personal points of inspiration - in this case Japanese culture versus Costa Rica landscape and jungle - the collections are ultimately and uniquely drawn together by color and distinctly "Cotton + Steel".

  1. Thank you Rita, I have just placed an order with Little Crafty Shop.
    I love Paper Bandana navy with white flower outlines - are the flower outlines bright white or off white?
