Notice anything new on my selvage?


I have been hinting at a lot of changes coming up for me. It’s finally time to start talking about it! If you follow me on Twitter then you already know. I have been keeping this all bottled up for months and months. I just couldn’t take it anymore.

So here it is… I am now officially working with Free Spirit! I am so excited to be in such good company! My new line is coming along fantastically and I can’t wait to share it with y’all. Parisville is the evolution of Tula Pink. Everything I have learned in my previous six fabric collections has culminated here. There is more POW and candy colored goodness than these little threads of cotton could possibly contain. I actually feel bad for the cloth being burdened by so much awesomeness.

Parisville is the collection that I have always wanted to design but didn’t have the guts to do. This idea has been sitting in my brain trust for a few years but I had to wait for my skills to catch up with it. I drew my pants off for this one. For real, like 6 months of drawing to get it all right before I took it digital or even thought about color.

I am still tweaking colors and working out some of the production junk, you know, the “job” part of fabric design. Keep checking back for updates and sneak peeks over the next few months. I am so excited I could spit!!! or take a nap but I probably won’t do either, I’ve got work to do.

  23. Free Spirit is a much better creative fit for you but me thinks you will explode with exxitement way before Market time. You still have the best part of three months to go and there is no way you will last!

    Parisville – now I really can’t wait to see it in all its French glory having been there before. Will love seeing your take on this glorious city.

  24. tulapink + freespirit = great marriage! Congrats!

    If you are interested, let me know!

  42. I really do not like you(right now) You gonna force me to open an account with Free Spirit . DON’T YOU?

  43. Exciting! And good choice I think.

  45. YAY! I love your designs! Great for you and Free Spirit!

  46. Wow, congratulations. I can’t wait to see you new fabric, I love all your other designs so I am sure this one will blow me away also.

  47. Congratulations! I just love your fabrics, can’t wait to see what you’ve got coming up next!

  48. Wow, I can’t wait to see it, congratulations on making the switch. You are not the only designer to leave moda in the last little while, makes me wish I was a fly on your wall, I’d love to get the inside scoop!!

  49. My one and only daughter is named Paris. When I first had her I was determined to NOT associate her with anything else sharing her name. However, that has changed drastically. Now anything that says ‘Paris’ seems to say “Paris” to me. Which is why my heart skipped a beat when I saw the name of your new line. To keep this short- I’ve been wanting to re-do her room for a while now. So without even seeing your work, I already know that it’s going to revolve around your new line. I love your work and I’m always amazed and inspired to create with it so it couldn’t be more perfect. Can’t wait to see it!

  50. You made a great choice! Love the colour way!

  51. So excited! :) I have become a big fan… I can’t imagine what would be more artistic than Plume!! :) Can’t wait! :)

  52. A big ‘ol (belated) congrats to you. Can’t wait to see where you go with your new direction!

  53. Congratulations! I am very excited that you will be working with Free Spirit. It will be a very good fit and I look forward to carrying your ParisVille line in my shop. I have already had inquiries! It’s time to see it up on the Free Spirit website where all the retailers go to see what is tempting and new. Good luck!
