Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know already yellow is hot, hot, hot this year. Pair it with gray and it is crazy hot! Manufacturers are taking the cue and creating fabrics, paper, yarns, and more with this bright and cheerful color. Westminster Fabrics’ Fairlyte Garden patterns, Basic Grey’s Lauderdale and Hello Luscious collections, American Crafts Hello Sunshine and Campy Trails collections, and Making Memories Dilly Dally collections all feature this popular trend.

I can’t walk into a store or browse a clothing website without seeing this popular trend. Whether you are like Old Navy and call it Mexicali or you are like Target and call it Calypso, we can all agree that this trend is currently very hot. These bohemian styles with their carefree attitudes and bright patterns are hot in crafts as well. We R Memory Keepers has a Fiesta collection that plays on these colors and patterns, as does Moda Fabrics Bandana fabrics.
