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!!!!!

Just look how cute my Plattie Platypus pattern turned out in Jennifer’s fabrics!!!

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

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?

I can mention a few, Plattie Platypus, Diggles the Dragon, Dilby Duck, Igor Iguana, Kiki Koala would look awesome in some of those, Larry Lion, Punju Peacock would look sooooooo awesome in any of those cool fabrics! In fact, I think that all of your patterns would look cute in those!

  21. I have always liked lightening bugs (also known as fireflies). They’d look so cute with their yellow bellies! Lightening bugs are so much fun in the heat of the summer!
