{Fabric Friday} A little Japanese fabric inspiration…

I’m currently working on a cool collaboration that requires me to pick out some new Japanese textiles to use for some plush characters and I’m thoroughly enjoy the research. I always welcome an excuse to by some more Japanese fabrics- as I tend to gravitate towards many  already. During my search last night, I stumbled on a few beautiful collections from Lecien that I thought I would share with you {via Trueup}. The first one is called Spicy Scrap and I was drawn to the blue plaid earlier this year when I made my Nighttime Dewey plush.

The next collection from Lecien is called, “Grandmother’s Flower Garden” by Rosalie Quinlan. I love the nod to history that these collections embody. This next one appeals to my softer, more feminine side, while the first one is much bolder and a smidge more modern. 


I am still in searching mode and haven’t made up my mind yet. But aren’t these colors and textures great? The fabric designs & colors definitely trigger little the nostalgia part of my brain. I am drawn to them because of they remind me of colors and pattern of my past. Do you have a favorite Japanese fabric collection that would like to share? Do any of these fabrics remind you of something from your childhood? Happy Fabric Friday everyone!

    That birdie is so cute! Love the tiny floral print. You know, I wasn't in love with that cross-tartan until I saw how you used it. It looks great on the plush!
