You may or may not have heard of Eric Carle’s classic childrens book, the very hungry caterpillar. It just happens to be my sons favourite book of all time, at three years old he had it memorized and could read the whole story to us. So when the fat quarter shop had a sale and Eric Carle’s fabric was included, I bit the biscuit and bought the Very series panel. It includes all the different characters from the stories in two different images – a great impact and I didn’t have to buy a whole bunch of different fabric! It’s taken me about a year to decide what to do with it, but I finally decided to make throw pillows for my sons new bed.
Theres one more that I haven’t sewn yet, and it has the actual hungry caterpillar on it. He’s now asking for a hungry caterpillar blanket – sigh.
Have you made anything with the eric carle fabric? I’d love to see it – leave a link!
