{Fabric Friday} Mr Rabbit Rawlinson ...


I have a stack of special fabrics in my studio- the stack is reserved for just the right project. A lot of the stack consists of the hand printed textiles that Helen Rawlinson makes. I've posted about her gorgeous designs before I know, but you can never get too much of a good thing. When I was thinking about making my Rabbit Plushies, I knew right away what fabrics I wanted to use on their backs... three of my saved Helen fabrics (lime spot, fuchsia ABC, & charcoal pebble). 



I'm really drawn to the modern, vibrant, & clean aesthetic of Helen's work. As to not reinvent the wheel, I'm going to give you links to the other posts I've written about her designs too. I've been a fan for quite awhile now.



I love to work with handprinted fabrics particularly when I have a face to the name . So, these little Rabbits were extra fun to make- it's like they really did magically pop out of Cardboard Man's hat. Happy Fabric Friday! Have a great weekend! Do you have anything fun planned?
