Jennifer Jangles – jolly cute fabric for softies!

Jul 10, 2015 | A day in my life, Blog

If you know me, you’ll know I LOVE colour (LOTS of it) and I am sure you can just imagine how much I love the awesomely bright and colourful fabric designs from Jennifer Heynan a.k.a Jennifer Jangles!

LOTS & LOTS!!!!!

Jennifer’s latest range of fabric is called Bugapalooza – what a cool name! It’s a bright and cheerful combination of checks, dots, flowers…



Bugapalooza Jennifer Heynan (Jennifer Jangles)

I think these fabrics would be very cute for a whole range of soft toy bugs. I can picture all sorts of new Funky Friends Factory bug patterns – a grasshopper, a caterpillar and butterfly perhaps, maybe a wasp or dragon-fly? Even a spider wouldn’t be too scary in such fun fabric!!!

What bug pattern do YOU think would be really cool in these fabrics?
