Creatures of the Night

NEW THIS WEEK - October 31st, 2007


Light Up the Night

Free Project Instructions!

 

Every night, as children and adults alike drift off to the Land of Nod, other creatures, both real and fictional begin to stir and waken. Adorable little monsters frolic, play and tumble about, while celestial moths take to the skies on fluttering wings. 

The Light Up the Night series was inspired by popular bedtime themes as well as critters that are lively and active while we slumber in our beds.  Fall asleep to the Good Night, Sleep Tight designs depicting traditional sleepy-time characters and stories.  Add beautiful night-themed moths to quilts, jackets, pajamas, and cabin decor.  The Request of the Week Celtic Owl is a lovely embellishment on towels, tote bags, sweatshirts and aprons.

For a little more whimsy, check out the Kooky Monsters design!   Funny little monsters with wacky personalities find their way onto children's bedroom decor and bedding, pajamas, robes, switch plate covers, cuddly stuffies, and fabric storybooks.

For a glimpse of some of the charming darkness dwellers, peer down the page.

Perfect for little hands, create a fabric Children's Storybook!
