Another interesting fabric design courtesy of St Jude's, The Captain's Pattern designed by Jonny Hannah.
A while back we showed you Hannah's print for the Museum of British Folklore and this fabric design celebrates some of the folklore and customs of the sea. There's mermaids, deep-sea divers and vintage tattoo-style designs, all interspersed with images of anchors and executed in his trademark style. It's a two colour design (either red/blue or blue/blue) printed onto heavy weight cotton.
The fabric costs £38 per metre or you can buy it as ready-made cushion covers for £32.

It was only couple of weeks ago we told you about tea towels Angie Lewin had designed for St Jude's first collection of homewares. We also mentioned how they were also planning to do their own mug range. And here it is…
The bone china mugs feature the same designs you can get on the tea towels, plus a few others such as the dandelion design shown here and the Skye mug. All the mugs use the same muted colour palette and share the same retro feel.
The mugs cost £7.25 each.

St Jude's produce some lovely fabrics with a great retro look, including the Angie Lewin Hedgerow fabric we featured at the start of the year. If you like the look, you'll be pleased they've started reproducing some of Lewis' original fabric designs as tea towels, an easily affordable way to buy into the look.
There are three designs in total, stocked at Illustrated Living, including the Clifftop and Clocks designs pictured above. They're typical of her style showing skeletal 50s-style illustrations of plant forms and are screen-printed onto 100% organic cotton.
Watch this space, as St Jude's are soon to be launching their first range of ceramic mugs. In the meantime, these tea towels cost £9.95 each.

New to St Jude's gallery is this Hedgerow fabric designed by Angie Lewin. We've featured a umber of St Jude's fabrics before such as Alice Stevenson's Treehouse design or their Kensal Rise collaboration with Old Town. Like those two designs, Hedgerow has a very British retro aesthetic, using a 1950s-style depiction of natural forms.
Though this Treehouse fabric is a contemporary design by Alice Stevenson, its skeletal pattern looks like it came straight out of the 1950s and the sketch book from someone like Lucienne Day. The design is from the St Judes stable and is made of two colours – the grey on grey option is shown but it's also available in faded red on grey – printed onto 250 gsm linen, perfect for making up curtains or loose covers.
The fabric costs £44 but if you are feeling a bit lazier St Judes sell ready-made cushion covers in this design.
