All our fabric art is created by our in-house artist. Much of originates in our bestselling children's books, and designs often take form as endearing plush toys. The Camp Cricket woodland friends collection features Foxy, Roxy Raccoon, Bruce the Moose, Harey and others. Cotton Tale Farm friends include piglets, cows, kittens, fluffy sheep – and bunnies, of course! There’s even a map of Cricket Island, where our Hareytale takes place.
We have a great selection to bring to Fiber Fest, including some flannels in limited supply (not available from our own website! “A FiberFest Find!”)

Fabric from Japanese silk kimono for crafting! I lived in Japan for 8 years and had fun, fun, fun with girlfriends shopping at the flea markets. I want to share my fabric so you can make scarves, pillows, dolls or quilts. Light colors can be ice-dyed and the darks are great as accents. Some kimonos will be cut and sold per sleeve. Other kimono are whole and priced individually.

My multi-colored fabrics are created using an ice-dye process and I create mottled coordinates with the same dyes using bag dying techniques. My fabric is cut to generous 2 yard, 1 yard, ½ yard and fat quarter pieces.
