The Stash Part 3 or otherwise entitled Is Brown the new Black?

Here is another serving from 'The Stash'.

I have never been one to covet the colour brown. I had a short-lived dalliance with brown when I was young and attending Brownies. I loved Brownies. Particularly discovering the existence of something called canned self saucing pudding on a camping trip but I digress.....
As a young child in the seventies brown was just always there. I kept away from it in my teens and twenties with a vigour. Now brown and I are making friends again. Have a looksie:

Some decorator weight fabric, found at the op shop, titled 'Mountain Flowers' that I'm aiming to use for a bag perhaps? Hmm, the colouring doesn't look too mountainish to me - more brown and dried and crunchy....

Next is some cute Robert Kaufman fabric:

And last is some uber cute Michael Miller fabric called Animal Crackers:


Brown is potentially making a comeback in the Silly Gilly camp. Maybe I'll even join the Brown Owls......
ETA - My apologies for poor quality of the top two photos. Bad evening light, child awake at 9pm, what more can I say? No excuses....... LOL

I am a bit of a brown fan, so of course I like these! I actually have a sewing box made in the blue colourway of the first fabric - my Nanna made it around 30 years ago.

The owls are so lovely. But i think the first one is my favorite, I love florals.

Fantastic fabrics - The first would look great on a bag. I'm rather partial to brown myself.

I've always loved brown. It is the color of chocolate, you know. :>}

Hi - I'm following the link from Jodie's blog. Just had to say that I too had an aversion to brown for many years - I think it was because my mother wore it a lot - and am now a big fan. Those fabrics are all lovely.

Take care :-)
