Kangaroos & Koalas (Food Safe)


Sewing Bee Fabrics And Haberdashery Shop


This Australian wildlife-themed Polyurethane Laminate Fabric (also known as PUL fabric) is a pretty watercolour-styled, animal-patterned, waterproof fabric which is perfect for adding a beautiful touch of nature.

This uplifting pattern has been painted in a colour scheme full of warm vibrant tones and lively energetic brushstrokes. Tall trees and leafy bushes are changing between the seasons as only a few green leaves are left. Autumn has arrived and the scenery is transforming into bold reds, zingy oranges and mustard yellows. The combination of these rich colours and the artistic style gives this pattern a dreamy idyllic feel.

Nestled between the branches are adorable Austrailian animals. Cute fuzzy koalas sit calmly resting near the trees. Their round faces are looking out curiously from the fabric.  Nearby, mother kangaroos hop between the bushes with their babies tucked safely in their pouches. The little baby kangaroo heads are poking out, adding a heartwarming element to the pattern.

This bush animal pattern has been printed on waterproof Polyurethane Laminate Fabric, which is breathable, lightweight, and has a gentle stretch. PUL is ideal for various sewing projects. We think that this pattern would be particularly fun for making wheelchair cushions, bags or protective aprons.

This PUL fabric has been certified food-safe. To gain this certification, it has been tested against stringent criteria to ensure it is safe to come into contact with food. This means that it would also be suitable to use this fabric to make snack bags, lunch bags, food storage sacks, and reusable food wraps. We recommend that you avoid using this fabric with hot food or heat sources such as microwaves or ovens, as these could potentially damage the fabric.

This PUL fabric is approximately 150cm (59 inches) wide. It is available in per-meter or half-meter lengths. When purchasing more than one in quantity, we will send this as a continuous piece of fabric. For smaller projects, we also have a fat quarter size which is approximately 50cm x 50cm (19 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

To keep your fabric looking vibrant and increase the longevity of your polyurethane laminate fabric, we recommend washing it at 30°C or below. Please be aware that PUL fabric may have a wide selvedge, and the lamination might not cover the entire selvedge edge or may overlap it. However, this does not affect the usable width of the fabric.

If you’d like more project ideas and helpful tips on sewing with PUL fabrics, we also have a PUL fabric guide.
