In a fabric where small bundles of fluffy cuteness are the main character, comes “Chubby Cheeks”. Designed by Tula Pink for FreeSpirit Fabrics as part of the “Besties” collection, this adorable hamster cotton fabric is ready to melt your heart!

The “Besties” collection has been inspired by the animals that we like to keep most as our closest companions as pets. But these cheeky little rodents have earned their escape artist reputation. They aren’t whizzing around in hamster balls or sliding down tubes. These little hamsters are having fun frolicking in a blossom-filled meadow.

In the “buttercup” colourway, these cute little hamsters have been drawn in light pink and white, which stand out beautifully against a sunkissed yellow background. These adorable creatures stand proudly on all fours, their chubby little cheeks peering out from behind a nearby flower. With wide open eyes, their expressions are filled with curiosity and a readiness to explore the world around them, wishing you good luck as you try to catch them before they are done with their delightful adventures. They bring such a sweet charm to the pattern.

These little hamsters are playfully scattered over the fabric in various directions, which not only reflects the hamster’s tendency to climb and crawl in all directions, but it also makes it easy to use this fabric on a whole range of projects where a single fabric piece can be used regardless of the directionality needed once it is sewn together.

Between the hamsters, yellow blossom fills the gaps. The colour used for the flower petals is close to the warm sunny yellow background, which creates a feeling of neverending blossoms, like the hamsters are frolicking through piles of fallen flowers. With pink in the centre of the flowers matching the pink colouring of the hamsters, this clever use of colours creates a harmonious and cheerful colour combination which helps to give the entire scene a really vibrant and positive feel.

Measuring approximately 110cm (43 inches) wide, “Chubby Cheeks” is available for purchase by the meter (39 inches) or half a meter (19 ½ inches). If you require a larger quantity, we will send it out as a continuous piece. For smaller amounts, we offer a fat quarter option measuring approximately 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

Printed on premium cotton, this fabric is both soft and durable, making it perfect for a whole range of sewing projects. We think that this delightful cotton would be especially fun to make hamster hexies for beautiful bags or creative quilts. Or maybe a fluffy friend-filled frock, or cute critter cushions.

So if your next sewing project would look great in some uplifting colours, and needs a bit more cheeky fun, then we hope that this hamster cotton fabric will help you put the “wheek” in “unique”.
