    Check out this cute fabric

    I just got a few yards of this. I think it's just too cute. I'm making my daughters some pencil cases and i-pod wallets so they can use fabric sharpies and color them in themselves. That way, it can be their own. I don't think I've ever been this excited over any fabric I've gotten before....lol.

    I really like the fabric and I know your kids will too when they see what Mom has made for them.

    That is a great idea - I think I saw some similar to this on QB a month or so ago - I think its perfect for little girls.

    I found someone selling it online. It was $10 a yard. It's by Michael Miller so it shouldn't be to hard to find. I'd check etsy first to see if someone had it there.

    It looks like great fun for the kids. I learned from a friend recently that you can use ordinary Crayolas on fabric and then iron it between layers of paper towels to get the wax out. It goes through the wash surprisingly well. The kids might find that more manageable than the pens because they don't bleed and there are more colors. If it were to fade a little after many washings, they could have the pleasure of coloring it again. It's a good idea to stabilize the the fabric with freezer paper on the back before doing the coloring to keep it from puckering under the force of the crayon. If the design is small, you'll want to sharpen the crayons often. Here's an example someone posted showing a border design she is doing with crayons and embroidery: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t195717.html

    Really cute fabric. Great for the kids stuff. I think letting them color it is a wonderful idea.

    Great idea for how you're using it. And the coloring the items themselves will tickle them to death!

    Why not just buy the crayola fabric crayons? The colors last a loooooooooong time.

    Cute idea!

    Oh! what pretty fabric. The colors will not wash away with fabric sharpies...where did you purchase the fabric...and where do you purchase the sharpies? Thanks for sharing.
