April marked the 10th anniversary of the release of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Mo Willems’s now classic picture book. If you have raised, taught, or been in the presence of anyone in the five and under set over the past 10 years, you probably know all about The Pigeon. Now Cloud9 Fabrics, a fabulous New Jersey-based organic fabric company, has teamed up with Mo Willems to produce a line of organic cottons featuring that bird with big dreams.
I have dreams, too, you know. Big dreams of Pigeon quilts, Pigeon pinafores for my toddler, Pigeon lunch bags…endless possibilities! I have been stalking this collection for months, and after a bit of a delay it is now officially shipping to stores. You can check the list of Cloud9 retailers under Where to Buy. These online shops are definitely stocking this line: Sew Modern (in stock now!), Hawthorne Threads (in stock now, going quickly!), and The Fat Quarter Shop (in stock now!).
And if you don’t already know about The Pigeon, you should!
