I love the funky ‘textures’ of the City Culture 2 batik fabric range designed by Bella Nonna for Island Batik!
Jayme Crow and her daughter Megan are the fabric designers behind Bella Nonna and they live in Washington USA.
This colourful fabric range would look amazing made up in most of my toy patterns…. BUT look how cute Ozzie Octopus, Larry Lion, Stu Sea Turtle , Alice Alpaca, and Ellie Elephant turned out!!!
These cute Funky Friends were s ewn by CalicoJoan of Moosestash Quilting. She’s an Island Batik Ambassador and been stitching for over 50 years! She says her goal is to inspire and entertain ….. and this is what she had to say about sewing these Funky Friends
I just love the bright colours of these batik fabrics for sewing Funky Friends because I think they give the toys such a ‘textured’ look in a woven fabric!
What Funky Friend do you think you would make in batik?
Bye for now
