new woodland kerchiefs out now!

I have been away from my computer for a little while so there is a lot to catch up on and where better to start than with Grubbies who have just brought out their new autumn/winter kerchiefs. I loved designing these scarves, they are definitely my kind of thing – autumn trees, fallen leaves, woodland creatures and their colours are bright red and yellow, good for cheering up dark winter days. Due to popular demand Grubbies have decided to sell the scarves in big sizes as well as little ones. An excellent idea if you ask me! And I’m not in the least biased…

Bubble!

Yesterday I went to visit fantastic children’s wear company Grubbies at the  Bubble children’s trade show in London. I was very excited to be getting my first glimpse of the new kerchiefs they asked me to design for next season. The last time I saw the designs was on my computer screen just before I hit send and now they are real! Here is a sneak peek:

Grubbies’ autumn/winter 2013 range features some rather special furry-on-the-inside dungerees as well as the two new kerchiefs Owl and Toadstools. I had a lot of fun designing these ones as they are based on woodland scenes (my favourite) with a lovely strong red and a mustard yellow as base colours.

Grubbies are GO!

Grubbies is a rather fantastic new children’s wear company whose very first range of clothing I am proud to say features some Marion drawing!  The minds behind the dungerees asked me to design two kerchiefs for their very first season and I was most happy to oblige. We worked away on ideas based around a wild west theme and came up with “Coyote” and Wild Horses”.

I am terribly proud of them and have been enjoying wearing them far too much….

Grubbies are great, if you’d like to know a bit more about them or buy some scarves or tiny dungerees then check out their website where you can do all those things: www.grubbies.co.uk
