Remember how much you loved coloring as a kid?
I still do. And when Lucy asks me to help her with a coloring page I’m secretly happy.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to discover this little item….
It’s a coloring book filled with fabric designs! Whaaat?
It’s called Pattern and Design Coloring Book by artist and fabric designer Jenean Morrison. If you follow Jenean’s fabric lines you know she has a beautiful style. And if you’ve seen her at Quilt Market, she always has the coolest booth! Like a bike wrapped in fabric….or flooring made from fabric (scroll through to see pics of her space).
So she had this idea….that fabric enthusiasts might enjoy coloring her designs. Sort of like making your own fabric, on paper. YES. I immediately ordered one for me and Lucy to share.
The book has 50 original patterns in repeat designs, florals, and geometric shapes. Just grab a pen!
Here’s the first one Lucy and I worked on with crayon. I let her pick out the colors and I followed her lead.
But we found that skinny markers were much better with the detailed designs. So I purchased a simple pack of crayolas. What we really need though are Pentels. I had some in Jr. High and toted them around like a prized possession.
Something that really surprised me is that Owen wanted to color a page too. We started this one together and he was so proud of how well he stayed in the lines.
I definitely think it’s a book aimed at older kids and adults since my little kids started to lose interest with the repetitive coloring. But not me! I could sit in front of movie and color away. It’s nice relaxation.
