Once upon a time

On 20, Dec 2012 | No Comments | In Etsy Love | By patternandco

“Once upon a time a little girl was read bedtime stories by her Grandma, as the girl grew older the stories stayed and were reread many times, in turn she read the stories to her family and when she fell in love the world became an adventure and she choose to live a stones throw from where the fairy tales all began …”

A true story, an interesting twist where life seems to complete a full circle.  I am the girl who loved the The Grimm’s Fairy Tales and now lives and works in a studio in Marburg, Germany where the two Grimm brothers lived between 1802-1805.  It is here that they began to collect the fairy tales that today are known all over the world and all around me you can find many places and art depicted in the tales.  I’ll be sharing  the towns charm and history and fairy tale connections over the next couple of weeks but I thought today would be good to start with Little Red Riding hood.  Interestingly, Google is also celebrating the story.

The tale is a classic and the patterns and designs are timeless, whimsical and adorable.  I have been working on a new set of fabrics and paper for 2013 that capture the spirit of little Red Riding Hood and although I can’t show any of the collection yet I did find some stunning surface pattern designs…..aren’t the colours and artwork brilliant!

What’s your favourite Fairy tale?  Little Red Riding Hood is certainly one of my top three!
