Thumbelina would have to be one of my all-time favourite classic fairytales and now Japanese novelty fabric designs!! Based on the literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about a thumb-sized girl and her many adventures before falling in love with a flower-fairy prince just her size, this exquisite, whimsical, new fabric is bound to delight the children!

 It is printed on the softest 100% cotton double gauze making it perfect for pretty little dresses, skirts and blouses but would also look exquisite if chosen for nursery decor. Available in a gorgeous blue on mocca above and dusty pink & brown on a flecked cream below with another two colourways due to arrive soon. We also have some beautiful spot double gauze fabrics here and here that would coordinate well with these designs.

If this fabric is not your cup of tea then pop over here to our new arrivals as we have just uploaded "40" new novelty Japanese fabrics, along with many more designer fabrics and gorgeous patterns for you to browse through.
