We’re just so very, very excited.  Beyond words excited.  Chain-eating marshmallows excited.  – We have our first cover artwork illustrations finished!

The amazing Poppy Tshaya Kay is providing the packaging artwork for our patterns and we are thrilled with how the first batch have turned out.   Sewabaloo have been admirers of Poppy’s work for a long time, and when she agreed to join our team it felt like a coming-of-age milestone for our little company.  Suddenly we felt all ‘grown-up’.

Poppy’s style is beautiful and simple, capturing the innocence and scraped-knees of childhood perfectly, yet she is still able to give a clear and accurate representation of the garments which will be created from the patterns.  We hope you love them as much as we do, this is what Sewabaloo is going to be all about.

These images are for our (as yet unnamed) animal costume pattern, which has recently come back from our team of pattern testers and will be undergoing revisions before heading off to the printers.  Yup – that’s right, gorgeous paper patterns with gorgeous cover illustrations and gorgeous digital drawings throughout.  Gorgeous!
