Indigo Panne Velvet

We loved this panne velvet at first sight, but when we washed a swatch, we were really WOWED!

Check out the washed sample on the left. The velvet has softened amazingly, the pile fluffed up, and the color a more intense blue.


Here's our washing notes, but you should really stop by the store and touch it for yourself!





More kitty prints, and pups too!

We have another sweet group of cat prints to share!


Don't worry, we haven't left the pups out either. Check out this bright, cheerful print!
