The Yuletide Shopping Guide was created to spotlight items that support our religious devotions and practices, help artists who are struggling in this pandemic year, and to help some of the artisans in our religious communities too. I’ve started early to share resources for cookie cutters, craft molds, and fabric related to Mesoamerica, Ancient Egypt, and Ancient Greece. In hopes this early start will allow the makers time to get ahold of materials if they intend to make something for this holiday season.
To our Northern Tradition polytheists, get ready to vike yourselves some fabric for your projects this yuletide. There’s a plethora of mjolnir (Thor’s Hammers), lots of runes too, Odin makes some appearances, a rune card pattern great for kids, and so much more. I have bought so much fabric.
Arts_and_Herbs Has a small fabric collection with varying sizes of a Valkyrie pattern based on archaeological finds, in addition to a mjolnir pattern, a sun wheel pattern, and a runes pattern.
Viking fairy offers two patterns both use a combination of runes and symbols connected to the Norse Gods, one looks like it could be a good option for the kids.
This is less religious, and more just cute. This Viking ship voyager pattern seems perfect for projects for the little heathens in our midst. Presented in a fabric collection with a variety of coordinating fabrics.
Even more fabric possibilities
- Yggdrasil and Our Gods – This pattern is so complex it’s hard to see it fully online. We see the world tree Yggdrasil and its connection to the worlds. In Asgard we see Odin riding his horse Sleipnir, Thor raising his hammer high, Freya with a cat drawn carriage accompanied by her boar Hlidsvini. While Loki is airborne with the giant Thiassi who has just stolen Idunna’s apples. We have bifrost with valkyries, Fenrir, frost giants, and more. You’ll need 48 inches to get the full repeat pattern, 42 inches gives you all the mythic elements but you’ll lose part of the rainbow sky. There is a smaller version of the print too.
- Odin, Freya, Freyr, Thor, Heimdall (color variations)
- Odin as a teapot, at a teaparty for his ravens
- Rune pattern in various colors
- Viking longboat pattern in various sizes and colors
- Odin and his ravens pattern (various colors)
- Runes pattern (in various sizes and colors)
- Midwinter pattern with the Sun, trees and deer
- Slavic Geometric Patterns
Please let me know if there are any errors, with all the copy/pasting it is easy to make a mistake. If there’s something you think I should spotlight in the yuletide shopping guide, please contact me and let me know. So concludes our fabric resources, but there will be more resources to come! Stay tuned.
2020 has been a chaotic year. So I decided to put together a Yuletide Shopping Guide with the intent to help artisan members of our community & to help spotlight items that support our religious devotions and practices. I’ve started with craft resources for our DIYers, including cookie cutters, craft molds, and fabric related to Mesoamerica and Ancient Egypt.
Hellenics will be especially interested in some of these options. Among the fabrics there are designs featuring over a dozen of the Gods and Goddesses of Olympus. There’s quite a selection with fabric styles ranging from sophisticated, to cute, to brightly bold or more modern. Have you been looking for a toile and love Dionysos? Some of the patterns are merely a nod to ancient Greek culture and archaeological finds, but I opted to include those as well.
Pay attention to the product listings, as there are multiple options for fabric, some designs are also available as wallpaper, or as finished goods (like tablecloths, pillowcases, and face masks).
Instead of starting with designers who have a large number of prints available in our Grecian theme, I thought I would begin today with some of the designers who might just have one pattern of interest.
- Hermes sneakers (with color variations)
- Dionysos toile
- Artemis in the Woods
- Artemis on the Hunt
- Artemis, Aphrodite, and Athena
- Greek urns, owls
- Hera, Zeus, Pan, Nyx, Demeter, & Hephaestus
- Mount Olympus with Greek Gods
- Artemis and Actaeon
- Zeus and Pegasus (various colors, sizes)
- Greek vase motif
- Greek Plates
- Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, Artemis, etc.
Spellstone has a pattern collection themed around ancient Greek culture with soldiers, owls, horses, and geometrics.
Color of Magic has a pattern collection themed around Persephone in a range of colors, with coordinating fabrics with pomegranates, geometrics and more.
Siya has a wide array of very bold colors and coordinating fabrics with geometric patterns for her Greek goddess patterns (grouped by the designer in color collections for Evening, Summer, and B). Siya also has a stand alone pattern themed around Hypnos and Pasithea, and an ionic column pattern too.
Please let me know if there are any errors, with all the copy/pasting it is easy to make a mistake. If there’s something you think I should spotlight in the yuletide shopping guide, please contact me and let me know. Northern Tradition polytheists will love the next installment as I spotlight some fabrics for them.
