Tammis Keefe Tribute Fabrics

We are in love with the new Tammis Keefe tribute fabrics from Michael Miller!

A textile designer in the late 40s and 50s, Ms. Keefe is most famous for her handkerchief designs, colorful and collectible, featuring animals, famous cityscapes and objects of all kinds portrayed in whimsical and minimal 1950s style.



We can't wait to stitch something up in these reproductions of her adorable illustrations, which are printed in the original colorways. How perfect is that?



How about a Macaron dress by Colette Patterns stitched up in Tammis's 1950s kitty cat fabric?





Sadly, Ms. Keefe passed away at the age of 46 from cancer. The royalties from the sale of these fabrics will be donated to help fund cancer research.
