Talkin’ or Racin’? Car Fabric for Boys (and Girls!)

Sometimes it can be hard to find awesome boy friendly fabric, so I was excited to see this new monster car design from MK*Designs! Of course, when it arrived my daughters insisted it was for them and were pretty bitter when I declared it was for their brother. Monster cars for everyone! Each of the… Continue reading Talkin’ or Racin’? Car Fabric for Boys (and Girls!)

I wish my photos weren't so blurry today (rain + hyper 6 y/o who doesn't want photos taken + suddenly discovering SD card was full, does not a nice photograph make!!!).

Face Your Fears!

I'm not really one for Halloween themed fabric, but when I saw this Stitch panel along with the Oogie melted crayon, I showed my son and he was *all about it*. The kid adores melted crayon, and in addition to being cat obsessed, he's also really into dogs, so this was a win-win for him!… Continue reading Face Your Fears!
