Alice & Thompson No. 9
First of all, if you haven't seen Alice in Wonderland, go see it. Next I was browsing my fabric library and found this No. 9 fabric from Jim Thompson that I thought was particularly interesting considering all of the new found fascination with Wonderland and the Mad Hatter. Jim Thompson is of course known for their silks, but the No. 9 collection was created to fill a void they were overlooking, "The collection aims to meet the expectations of the new and existing customers by providing the highest quality of fabric but also placing a new emphasis on accessibility and versatility. Due to the nature of the designs, the fabrics from No.9 Thompson evoke a sense of comfort and homeliness for a living space. " I love the tea party happening in this pattern and I think it would be awesome in a child's room or a breakfast room of someone's kitchen. It's a bit of wonderland with an adult reference.
