I have three new colorways for this Christmas season which will debut in the shop update tomorrow, Wednesday, November 30th at 12pm CST.
The first colorway is called "Father Christmas". I was inspired by the beautiful images and colors of vintage Christmas cards featuring the Old World Father Christmas trudging through the snowing woods making his delivers so I used rich colors like navy, cranberry and evergreen with a large handpainted snowy woods stripe. I wanted to give a nod to the original legend of St. Nicolas by including three stripes of gold to represent the three original gifts.
"Seasick Crocodile" is the second new colorway for this season. As you have guessed, it is inspired by the Seuss' Grinch. The whole striping sequence is his face and of course, there is a thin black stripe between each color because he is drawn like that!
The last new colorway is lovingly called "Tangled Lights". My family has a tradition of decorating for Christmas the weekend of the Thanksgiving holiday so when we pulled out the tubs, totes and bags we rediscovered treasures, found a few broken things and lots of tangled lights. It's a holiday tradition!
The shop update tomorrow will have lots of these three colors plus more Apple Picking and Pumpkin Spice Latte so I hope to see you there!
This past week was a super short work week for the studio. We celebrated our national holiday, Thanksgiving and my youngest daughter's 9th birthday as well! My eldest was home from college for five whole days and so our family enjoyed loads of wonderful time together. However, even though it was a short work week for the Must Stash studio, I managed to create a couple of new Christmas color ways which I hope to have ready in the shop this upcoming week!
First to get ready is "It's a Grinchy Christmas" which was a collaborative design of my team. Color ways that come about this way are usually so unique and wonderful! The second one getting reskeined right now is "Father Christmas" which you can probably tell from the name is inspired by the Victorian style gift-bringer. The third and final new color for this year has yet to be dyed but I hope to get that done tomorrow and it will be called "Tangled Lights" and the inspiration is once again in the name.
Hopefully, these three new Christmas inspired color ways will be in the shop by this upcoming Friday (December 2nd). You can check out a preview listing here in the meantime.
