I got my winter animal series done as throw pillows... and have the fabric available for sale on my spoonflower site, for those of you who sew :)
I envision these as the fronts with some fun geometric patterned back fabric, or maybe faux fur (in fun colours, maybe light blue for the polar bear?) I still have to sew mine (this one is just pinned to another pillow for the photo). For those of you who know me, I am trying very hard to learn to sew, but it's a work in progress, eventually these will be my throw pillows!
They would also work well as shoulder bags as reusable shopping bags. They measure 16" x 16" (I chose this size because it's easy to find pillow inserts to fit this size (Walmart and Ikea both have them).
Here are some close ups of a couple of the fabrics, I got these printed on Linen-Cotton Canvas. The print job and detail are terrific, I also love the texture of this fabric, something very natural feeling about these.
