FUN fabrics!

I saw this site... http://www.bugfabrics.com/ in the back of the new Threads magazine.
It is full-to-the-brim with fabric for children or adults who like whimsical and/or fun themes.
Since I made the 'jammy bottoms', I've been looking around for fabric for another pair.
I wore the 'frog jams' yesterday with a black tee.
I was so comfortable and could even answer the door... or take a nap.
Anyway... I found this site and drooled! So many fun, fun fabrics and good quality too.
I love the 2 fabrics below with metallic thread... no, not for pajamas... ouch!
But they show the variety of bug-related fabrics they have.
They'd make lovely throw pillows, jacket, vest, etc.





They specialize in all types of bugs including but not limited to ladybugs, dragonflies, bees, and butterflies. They also have other critters like frogs, geckos, and snailsAnd don't forget dinosaurs, monsters, and farm animals too!

(Click above categories for a sample!!)







Aren't they adorable??
And many of them have coordinating fabrics.
By the time I got to the end of the site, I was ready to make a child's quilt.
A close friend of mine has 3 little boys and I saw so many prints that would make great pillowcases that I know they'd love to sleep on. Hmmmm... Christmas?

Off to eat oatmeal and drink tea. I got up at a ridiculous 5am.
XOXOXO

Those fabrics are darling! I especially like the one with the frogs doing "poses!"

Are you all getting excited for your trip?

What absolutely adorable fabrics!!! Since so many of my friends are getting new grandbabies, I may have to order some! Of course, I wish that I were getting a grandbaby, but no such luck!!!

I'm loving all those fabrics and if I wasn't catching a plane in two days, I think I'd be out fabric shopping. You've certainly given me lots of ideas!

5 a.m. IS ridiculous! Thanks for the great fabric link. I suspect I'm a lot like you -- love those relaly fun fabrics and am always looking for fun ways (pillowcases, jammies, etc.) to use them -- there just don't seem to be enough ideas to suit me!
