I often watch your blog posts and now have become the follower.
I have 2 sons and they both admire cars, that's why my favourite fabric is this one http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.190917935.jpg.
And I'm in love with owls. When I imagine my lovely boys having something sewn with owls... Mmmm...

Hello! Just became a follower but I have stalked you for years! Sorry, it sounded so creepy. The pattern is so cute to make a dresser cloth for my son.I loved the "Riley Blake - Wheels - White Signs" fabric at Cherrylanetextiles. Is on my favorites until I get approval from the hubby to buy (he has me on a budget on fabrics after I spent over 300 dollars last month). Thank you!
