{Marimekko} Need some input…

Oh boy do I love Marimekko textiles! But I need your help. My Marimekko klt:fabric stash has drastically depleted and I am in need of more. I have a klt:plushie project in mind and was on the search for some Marimekko textile deals last night. Being a small biz means my budget is tight – so I can only get 1 or 2  different designs. Here are four that I found deals on. Do you have a favorite that you can see some klt:creations in? I keep changing my mind and needed some input. Thanks in advance! Look forward to hearing your thoughts….

    I love Marimekko too.

    Those two greens would look great together. Is that a small-imaged Melooni? one … rather than the one with the very large ovals (make sense?). You might loose the effect of that fabric on small projects.

    I like the houses … I think Unikko has been done to death.

    Any help? Probably not.

    Ooh tricky. It depends on the scale I think. I've always loved 3, but out of these…1 would be nice to compliment your embroidery drawings, but then again the blockiness of 4 would make a great contrast, if the scale is quite small. Not very helpful really am I? I'm sure you'll do a fine job with whichever you choose!

    Splendid fabrics! I vote 1&2!

    Beautiful choices Kristin. I agree with Helen. Really depends on the scale of your plushies. I find 1,2 & 4 to be gender neutral while 3 is really for girls. Whichever ones you pick, I'm sure the end product will be gorgeous!

    Ooh fun! I like 1 the best in general and it seems it might work well for your winged creatures but maybe not a punchy for smaller areas. I really like 3 and 4 for slug bottoms and other smallish accents.

    My eye is really drawn to #1, but I can see slug tummies in #2.

    #1 for sure. I like #3 too, it's fun and happy. 2 and 4 are a little heavy and dark.
