Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

A hugely exciting new release from Cloud9 Fabrics is the collection Happy Drawing which is based on the iconic images from Ed Emberly's Drawing Book of Animals. The book teaches a young reader to draw cute and quirky animal characters using simple geometric shapes as well as letters and numbers. Such was its popularity that is has remained in print for over forty years.
Cloud9's first release, Happy Drawing, is shipping now. Happy Drawing consists of thirteen fabric designs and one 'Cut and Sew Panel'. Here is a selection of my favourites:

Lions and Tigers - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics
  
 Alligators- Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Scribbles, Green - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Frogs - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Scribbles, Black - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Forest Friends - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

There will be a second collection, Happy Drawing Too! released in October. Happy Drawing Too! consists of nine new fabric designs and five 'Scribbles' designs that were also part of the first release. Here are my picks:

Birds - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Cats - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Sealife - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

Crabs - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics

 Crabs - Ed Emberly for Cloud9 Fabrics
