For a little guy

Pin It I got a commission project, and it showed up on my doorstep today (thank you fabric.com)

I think I'm going to use Julie's Circle Around design... at least for one side.  I'm going to leave the other side a surprise.

It will be twin-size, and I have more fabric than I need, but I (and the mama ordering) wanted scrappy and reversible, (and Hawaiian of course).  (But you know... on second figuring, I don't think I'm going to have too much extra!)

So here I am showing it off to the little recipient's mama (and the rest of you). :)

Not my typical fabric choices (what, Tracey...surfin' monkeys aren't your thing?)... but I think it's going to be so cute!

Now to get to work!

Its fun to work with something differnet once in awhile, as long as you like it ... if they had picked out stuff you just did not like it might be painful to work on the project.

Lets see those monkey surf!

Been in California a long time, have seen some ugly surfers, so monkeys, why not?..."shaka bra, little dude" hehehe. Very cute fabric, can wait to see what you make from it.

I think this will be such fun - and the pattern looks ideal for all that colour and pattern in the fabric. Juliex
