Have you ever printed on fabric using your printer? I have an HP Envy that I have used and a special fabric. Sometimes it is just fun to create a baby quilt or wall hanging that is unique.

I made this as a wall hanging but I could have made the borders a little wider and had a precious little baby quilt.

Last January I needed to print out a couple of quilt labels and didn’t want to waste the rest of the printable fabric sheet so I decided to print out some graphics of cute animals that I had.

I resized them so I could get 2 on the page with the quilt labels and then decided to print another page of them so I could make a quilt.

Aren’t they cute little animals?

This is as far as I got in January and then I got busy with other projects…..like the extra butterfly blocks from my scrappy butterfly quilt tutorial. I am so glad I finally finished it.

This cute little alligator looks sweet even before the quilting.  I like to use a Bright White printer fabric that I can run through my inkjet printer.  My favorite brand is June Taylor Sew-in Sheets. The bright white cotton fabric really lets the bright colors of the animals show. You heat set them afterward with your iron.

I mentioned the other day that I get a lot of my graphics from Creative Market. This little set of Cute Animals came from there.  There are actually 12 different animals and some other goodies in the set.

Since I made this quilt, I have started using graphics from another site. They also offer free ones every week and their prices are very reasonable. Creative Fabrica is the site and I actually have a yearly subscription to it. Here is a cute Tribal Animals set you might like.

I’m not sure what this little fella is but he is sure cute and I love the flowers he is holding onto! I dug through my stash and pulled out some of my brown batiks and cut them into 1½” strips and sewed rows around the blocks in a log-cabin type of pattern.

Next, I added a 2½” sashing of a cream batik to finish off the wall hanging. Isn’t this cute? I should make a couple of pillows with some of the other cute animals.

I just did a simple meandering free-motion quilting on the background fabric and also around the printed animals. I also used a dark brown batik for the binding which I sewed down by machine.

  2. Love these adorable animals and the quilt came out so cute!!!!! I went to the website and they are having a great sale so picked up a couple – one for Valentine’s Day – Coffee Valentines – Coffee and Valentines my favorite combo! Thanks!

  3. Oh, those really are cute animals. I’m not sure what it says about my maturity level, but I’m always drawn to the “cute” stuff and making kid quilts is always my favorite.

  4. I think that little fellow is a bear, and he’s a cutie.

    Thanks for introducing me to Creative Market. I hadn’t heard of it, but I’ll be stalking them weekly for their freebies from now on.

  5. The little animals are super cute. However, it is the lovely Island Batiks you have surrounded them with that really give them life. They would make very sweet baby gifts in quilts and pillows and…Oh My!

  6. Oh my gosh…those are just adorable. I’ve got to check out Creative Market!

  7. Those are soooo cute! I love the whimsical nature of the animals.

  8. Love the bugxeyed animals, really gets your attention! Thank you!

    oh my goodness, this wall hanging is absolutely adorable. the borders around them are perfect and your quilting is so pretty.

  10. Those really are cute! I gave up my inkjet printer a long time ago in favor of a b&w laser. Most of the time, I’m fine with that but now and then I wish I still had the inkjet.

  11. Do you find the printable fabric hard? I was using it for quilt labels but don’t like the feel of it on the quilt.
    But the animals are very cute. And a good idea for the wallhanging..

    1. Answering Linda – Yes, sometimes it is stiff from all the stuff they put on it. So I make my own. Then you can start with any color. MUST be 100% cotton, silk, wool. Soak the fabric in a solution of “Bubble Jet Set”. It can be a little pricey to share with like minded friends. Also works when you want to dye your fabric. Now that was FUN!!!! You can print without it but then it cannot be laundered. They do suggest their “soap” for cleaning.
      Soak the fabric in Bubble Jet. Dry. Press.
      Cut to 8 1/2″ x 11″ – if the fabric is really soft and not too stable I painter’s tape it to a piece of paper.
      Put in printer. Print. Have some fun with it.

  13. These little guys are adorable! All three of my grands are here – Panda boy, Puppy boy, and Owl girl!! I love Creative Market and get a lot of my fonts from there. They have neat giveaways too! I love making cards, and these would be so cute to make them birthday cards as well. Great job on the wall hanging!
