I’m going to honestly say that I have never heard of the Cotton + Steel company prior to this coloring book, so I didn’t know that it was an awesome company that designed really cool fabrics until after I had looked through this book and wanted to learn more about them. I’m not all that crafty, so I wouldn’t have a reason to purchase fabrics for much, but looking at some of their prints kind of makes me wish I was!
Anyway, the Cotton + Steel Coloring Book is a nifty coloring book full of random, cute, and whimsical designs that are incredibly fun and will definitely make you smile. If you’re having a bad day, come home, pick up some colored pencils, and choose a design out of this book – you’ll be feeling much better before you know it!
Some of the designs are sure to bring out your inner child, and are sure to add a little bit of joy to your day as you color. Even just looking through this book will make you happy, because there is just so much here…so many different designs, patterns, and illustrations!
The designs are printed on one side of the page, which is awesome if you like coloring with markers, gel pens, or watercolors.
While the paper in this book is kind of thin, putting another sheet of paper between the design you’re coloring and the next page will be just fine to protect against bleeding if you’re using markers, pens, or watercolors. Colored pencil users don’t have to worry about that, as the paper is nice to color on and since it’s smooth, it allows for blending and easy coloring.
Some of the illustrations in the book allow you to add your own personal touch to the design – which is really neat and is great for those who are really creative.
Along with the awesome quirky illustrations, you will also find some neat retro designs, like telephones and typewriters, that you can’t help but just love! There are so many things to choose from in this book – there is definitely something here for everyone!
This is an awesome coloring book – sure to put a smile on your face and become one of your favorites!
