The charming feel extends throughout the shop. “I wanted everyone to feel like they could curl up on the couch and take a nap,” Mickey says. Razzberry Creek (on bed), Paris at Night (above bed), and Mint Condition (right) exemplify this welcoming feel.
Sweetwater Cotton Shoppe sticks to cottage-style florals, Civil War, 1930s, Kansas Troubles, a few baby prints, and North Woods fabrics. Drawing on deeper hues, Olivia, designed by the shop’s co-owner April Zimmer, and a yo-yo mat (bedspread-in-the-making) are on display.
Exude cheerfulness with bold, novelty prints in a bright version of Happy Days. Animal prints are from Now I Know My ABC’s collection by Kate Honarvar, and borders are from Color Wash by Debi Hubbs, both for Timeless Treasures Fabrics.
