New Kokka Fabrics Galore!

Jaime and I were inspired to drop everything and stitch up some new outfits, thanks to a tempting box of  Kokka fabrics that just arrived! Japanese style must be all about photographic prints of woodland creatures and a love of eastern European folk style right now, and we are digging it.


I chose this friendly animal print to make an adorable Barcelona skirt from. I love the photographic quality of the animals and mushrooms and was super excited to have new fall skirt!

The Barcelona Skirt pattern by Amy Butler is our number one selling pattern of all time - it is a classic design that flatters many body types and an easy-to-make pattern. Our A-Line Skirt Class is also a favorite and is a great choice if you would like some help making this skirt. I have made it so many times, I can whip one of these up in about a hour and a half, lined and all. I love it!


Colette's Macaron dress is a sewing pattern that I've been wanting to make for a while--when I saw this European folk inspired fabric form Kokka I knew I had to make an adorable little dress.

This was my first time making the Macaron, but I knew I would enjoy sewing it. Every Colette pattern I've made has worked out wonderfully. I paired the print with an Echino solid in teal, added a navy piping to the sleeve and placed the fancy red heart of this cute print right in the center of the bodice.

That's not all that was in this box of fabrics either, there are plenty more Kokka fabrics that are just waiting for someone to turn them into the cutest sewing projects of all time. What will you make...

...an owl oven mitt, a partridge pocketbook?

A babushka bookbag?

A rabbit romper? Perhaps a mushroom miniskirt?

Happy sewing!
♥ Amber & Jaime

O...M...G! I'm gutted not to be able to TOUCH this fabric! I might have to buy some and have it put aside for December. I miss you fancy people so much!

I know that this was posted a long time ago, but I was wondering if you have any yardage or remnants of the navy Scandinavian print fabric that you would be willing to sell! I've been searching for this fabric EVERYWHERE to make something (a pillow, or an accent depending on how much I can get my hands on!). Any help would be appreciated!

Hello - I realize you posted this a few years ago. But, do you know where I can get the European folk fabric?
