If you love the Berenstain Bears and don't have your nose out of joint like someone we know who is still bugged about how Papa Bear is always portrayed as a bumbling boob, then you might want to check out Moda's new Welcome to Bear Country fabric line featuring our favorite fictional ursine family.
Fat Quarter Shop and Hancock's of Paducah both have collections and boy are they swell.The palette of Mama Bear's dots alone is very fun. Throw in the rest of the other colorful patterns and you have gen xers' and echo boomers' kid lit fabric dreams come true.
Speaking of dreams...we would love to lay our head on a pillowcase made with fabric picturing the rolling hills and fabulous tree-houses of bucolic Bear Country. But then, the nagging question of how all those rooms managed to fit into those tiny tree dwellings might just keep us from our rest. Perhaps a frilly dotted apron à la Mama Bear might be a less disturbing-thought-provoking choice.
