LAUREN’S TRANSFER TIPS
Fabric DESIGNER PROFILE
Quilted PLAYMAT • Baby will enjoy tummy time on this dramatically coloured octagon-shaped floor quilt.
A fluffle of bunnies • A group of rabbits is most commonly called a colony, however they can also be called a fluffle, and there are even more collective nouns. We prefer fluffle as it suits the gorgeous nature of the cushion and pincushion.
