Ta da! The first fabrics are here. Paper cranes, alligators (or crocodiles?) superheros and monsters (or aliens?) that look and feel beautiful. These fabrics aren’t cut yet– they were sent directly to me from Spoonflower after two international participants ordered them. Since I am one of those folks who can appreciate the pains of living…
