Simplicity contacted me in February to ask if they could use some of my Ladybug designs in the spring 2012 catalog. I read through the contract and said yes! The next stage was looking for fabric. It sounds so easy! I get buy fabric for 5 bags how hard can that be. Right! It was honestly the hardest part of the process. I searched high and low. When I saw these bright pink and green combo, I loved it (love pink and green) but there was not enough! So I kept looking.

Finally, I found these prints in a local fabric store, Elegant Stitches! I love Elegant Stitches! They carry all of the latest prints and there personnel are extremely helpful!

It is called a Dab of Jazz by Gail Fountain and Maywood Studios. I love how bright and airy it looks and feels. These are all of the colors here in North Carolina in the spring. I hope Simplicity will like them as well!
