Forest Friends by Jennifer Long of Bee Sew Inspired for Riley Blake Designs is a fabric collection with a difference!
There are soft toy doll panels, a camping panel with tent and campfire and even s’mores! Plus knitted wool looking prints and argyle fabric!
I mean, take a look at that cute woodland fox (called Todd) with his nifty argyle vest and scarf! He also has a quilt (of course!) and a trail map so he doesn’t get lost on his adventure in the country. And so he doesn’t get lonely, he also has his child with him (who also has a stuffed fox toy not pictured!)
And there is also an Arctic Fox called Vixen.
And of course when you are off on adventures, you need a tent and sleeping bag and a warm fire! The collection comes with a Doll Camping panel kit that has all of that (and more… or should I say s’mores!)
I just couldn’t resist getting this collection as I can just imagine the fun in making these, as well as the fun in giving them to some young children! Creativity all around!
And there is more! : ) A toddler sized sleeping bag!! We have made up kits for both the arctic fox and the woodland fox colours for these. It comes with the panel and 4.5 metres of fabrics to make the main sleeping bag as well as two sleeping masks. What fun!
Jennifer has written up instructions for each of the panels over on her website, so you can have a read of those before the fabric arrives mid November. Head over to her website to download the instructions.
And she is also having a sewalong of the fox doll panel stating on November 9th, which us Aussies will miss the start of, but we can catch up! If you would like to join in, head over to Jennifer’s website to sign up.
So come and join the Forest Friends adventure!
