A Cozy Little Pre-Order

I will be offering a limited number of pre-orders in this very popular fabric by  mirabelleprint begging tonight at 9pm eastern. The pre-orders will be open through Sunday, or until all slots are filled, and will ship in 4-5 weeks.


You may notice the fabric’s print has been scaled up for the Sweater and Aran Sweater sizes. Not only does the larger print look better on the larger bag, it has a cute coordinate look when paired with one of the Sock Plus or Large Wedge bags.

I’m delighted that many of you found this fabric as charming as I did!

Warmest Wishes for Happy Holidays,
