Help Adrian



Back again after the success of our last Help Adrian post, here are two fabrics from a recent shipment we've received. There's a fabulous drapey polyester/elastane jersey (above) and black/white printed ponti (below).



Can you come up with a great name for the fabrics pictured above? If we choose your suggestion, you'll receive two metres of the fabric you've named! Name one or name both, we appreciate any suggestions.

Comments will close 11:59pm Thursday August 23rd AEST.

  1. My suggestions: for the first fabric 'parallel lines' and for the second fabric 'moon shadows'.

  2. I am going to resist the temptation to ruin a beautiful fabric like the ponti by suggesting "50 Shades of Grey" (mind you, it would probably sell like hot cakes) but it could be called Moonlit Shadows.

    ReplyDelete
  3. The first roll of fabric just screamed something indigenous to me, so I suggest calling it 'Dreamtime'.
    The second fabric feels moon like or planetary so I would call it 'curiosity' after the Mars robot.
    Both beautiful.

  19. The second one "Potion Commotion". It reminds me of a print I have where something is boiling furiously over the top of a pot whilst the holder of the pot is wearing a fabulous frock. This week my daughter asked me why all the science they do at school is boring and why they can't learn about which potions to add to other potions. I guess she has been re-reading her witch books!

    I think the first fabric should be "The Wright Line" in homage to Frank Lloyd Wright and the second reminds me of black and white graffiti on city walls so it should be "Splashes of the City."

  38. The first fabric reminds me of dense bushland, so I suggest for it "diramu" (Aboriginal for tree), and the second reminds me of looking deep into the night sky, so I suggest for it "buduwangung" (Aboriginal for the Magellanic clouds) or "warriwul" (Aboriginal for the Milky Way).

    The first one: "crossroads" or "how the zebra got his stripes"

    The second one: "man in the moon" - for some reason it looks a bit like the man in the moon...

    ReplyDelete
  80. The first one reminds me of some kind of Native American fabric but, on closer inspection looks like pencil lines. So my suggestion for that one is "Navajo Sketchbook". It's a lovely print!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sunrise through blinds
    2. Under the microscope

    ReplyDelete
  82. 1. Stilts and ladders

    ReplyDelete
  84. My suggestions...1. Escher's forest & 2. Positively negative...cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Maybe I've been watching too much Poirot again, but the first makes me think of smoke and mirrors and want to say "Suivez-moi".
    The second looks like a stormy moonlit night, and I don't think I could top Jeso's suggestion above of "luna splash", that is an awesome name for it.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Love love love number 2 : "1995" - reminds me of being a teenager!

    ReplyDelete
  87. My suggestions would be:
    1. polyester/elastane jersey: Cubism
    2. black/white printed ponti: Marshlands

    ReplyDelete
  88. For the second fabric I suggest a trip to the moon after the George Melies film. This year is the 110th anniversary of the film and this fabric is not only reminiscent of the moon surface but has the tones and textures of the black and white film.

    ReplyDelete
  89. First Fabric: Laddered
    Second Fabric: Urbanity

    Both great fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
