Annie Sloan Fabric Collection: Sew Fabulous!

Now available at Apple Box Boutique: The Annie Sloan Fabric Collection

Annie Sloan, renowned creater of Chalk Paint®, has unveiled her designer line of French and Belgian fabrics.  Made to coordinate with her Chalk Paint® colours, the fabric collection includes cotton tickings and florals as well as linens that are ideal for curtains and upholstery.

The Monaco ticking by Annie Sloan (above) is 100% cotton and is one of our most popular ticking fabrics as it has a lot of colours yet it is not too bright or overpowering.

The colours are light denim blue, pale blue, chestnut brown, white, wine red, oatmeal , grey and pale sage green. There are more colours because of the way the coloured threads are woven so you get one stripe in blue and green and some of the stripes have a vertical weave and others have a spotty weave. Great value!

Charcoal Pastorale.  An elegant fabric printed in a charcoal graphite color on an off white pure fine cotton. The pictures of idyllic country scenes are drawn beautifully and finely. It is double width so in keeping with French tradition can be use on walls, window treatments or for light upholstery such as a headboard or a bedroom chair.

Normandie. The toile depicts delightful country scenes in a warm sepia on a light dusty greyed lilac. It is suitable for curtains, walls and light domestic upholstery.

A double width fabric as is quite normal in France, often used on walls. This is 280cm wide rather the normal 140cm wide so if you need 4 metres of normal width fabric, you will only 2 metres of this fabric.

French Hens depicting chickens, roosters, eggs and a feather on a linen look background make this a charming fabric right for curtains in the kitchen or garden room or a small chair. The colours are sophisticated and unusual being reds and rich purple and would go beautifully with our linen or red spots. It is excellent value as it is an old design and comes straight from a French factory. It works with many of our paint colours.
