Morning all,
Well just wanted to keep you all up to date with where we are at here at Alphabet Monkey. As you know I have been working on getting some new ranges produced for me offshore and it is taking quite a bit longer than I originally imagined. A few problems at the other end with communication and such but we are seeing some progress and we are well on our way.

I originally decided to look into this as I have found that I am unable to keep up with making everything myself..even with the help of my mum and my new assistant Summa. Also I hope that I may be able to offer some products wholesale to the many people who have expressed interest in stocking our products.

By doing this I really want to offer you (my fabulous customers) a larger range of items , including fitted cot sheet, modern cot quilts, patchwork cot quilts,organic wraps, bunting, single bed quilt covers, pillowcases, cushion covers. I am re-releasing the storm series which will include a single bed quilt cover and we will also be doing the cot ranges in aqua.
The second range will be a mix of arrows, teepee and geometric designs and we will be going strong with a hint of emerald and mint. All the products will be able to mix and match so you can design the nursery just right for you..and with the option of a quilt cover you can match up the style to his big bed. I know many of you have a cot and a bed in the one room and this will be great for you to mix and match.
One thing though…no king single covers. Due to the width of fabrics for printing it isn’t going to be possible.

So I am heading off next week to check up on everything..see the prints being done, check samples, fabric and sewing quality. This is very important to me, as well as seeing where things are made and that it is fair pay etc. I have already seen the small factory and am confident that all is well on these fronts.

It’s a very exciting time for Alphabet Monkey and also a bit nerve racking!! I thank you all so much for your support.

So while I am away I will place an order for the Indian headress’ so please don’t hesitate to contact me via Facebook to place an order. The large chief headress is perfect for styling your boys nursery or bedroom, and can be used for dress ups in between. The smaller size is a great size for small children and also looks great for decorating.
The large will be $120 (white feathers) and the small will be $75 (black, yellow or emerald) I can check for other colours is you order this week.

I found this colourful vintage style nursery this morning  and thought it was so great I decided to make it todays Pinterest Pick.

It is a great indication of things to come….lots of bold colour and in particular colourful cots.

If you love these vintage style cots I have great news for you. Incy Interiors in Australia now stocks the beautiful Spindle range in which you can order in over 4000 dulux paint colours..whatever your heart desires.   What colour would you choose??

Trend Watch ..stars

Nest Design Studio - Lane Nursery 9[7]

Nest Design Studio - Nursery Interior Design[5]

I wanted to share another trend I’ve been noticing and this gorgeous nursery by Belinda from Nest Design Studio is a great example.

I know the use of stars isn’t a new thing particularly in boys nurseries and rooms, however this trend is definitely not the red, white and blue, nautical inspired look you are used to.  Its more about space (outer space that is) and tapping into the current interior passion for the use of metallics.

It certainly fits in with and follows on from the use of clouds in nurseries..we are seeing more little stars mixed in and moon faces. As well as an emerging trend for the use of constellation type patterns and vintage maps of the sky.   You can see more of this trend on my ‘stars and constellations ‘ board on pinterest here

Scandi Inspired Cross Quilt

Black and white nursery
black and white nursery

Introducing a new scandi inspired black and white patchwork quilt that I have just finished. Since so many of you requested the swedish cross in our Facebook competition, I have incorporated it into our own style. I have named it the Pia Scandi quilt.
While it is a bit busier than the simple cross blanket I feel that in a very basic nursery the pattern of the quilt can bring a bit of interest to an otherwise monochrome nursery. Anyway if you want that total simplicity you can just buy the actual blanket..which we discussed back here.

We also looked at some black and white children’s rooms back here..and here. It’s a trend which will continue to grow.

I’ve put it together with some other nursery ideas for you.

Update..yellow and grey elephants
yellow nursery ideas featuring alphabet monkey elephant quilt

Morning all,

Just wanted to give you a quick update to let you know where I’m at.   I have made up a new 1014 version of the yellow and grey elephant quilt and am now taking orders here.  I know many of you have been waiting on this.

I do also have some small yellow chevron on its way so it will also be incorporated into the quilt.  I’m sorry its taken me so long but I’ve been feeling frustrated and anxious this month waiting for people to deliver on promises made in regards to fabric supply and samples for our new ranges.  I am just so keen to get them all out there to you .  But this has to be a lesson in patience I guess..something I’m not that great at.

So I will continue to keep you up to date with things as soon as I know things are actually happening..aahh!!

I did make you this little board to show you the quilt patterns.. And some cute items for a yellow and grey nursery.

Hello Minty.. loving mint and grey
minty geo quilt by alphabet monkey

 

I’m loving mint , grey and black and I’m a bit of a fan of this latest combo.

I do love that it is quite a strong version of mint which will fit right in with a cool monochromatic, scandi style nursery.

Like many of my quilts I have a limited amount of this fabric so it will be a very limited edition..so if you like it don’t wait too long.

And don’t forget that we can customise those hello cushion covers with a name of your choice.  Check out the custom name cushion listing here.
