Call Of The Wild

Call Of The Wild

Today I found a great deal on some beautiful animal skin fabric - giraffe and zebra -- and I bought as many yards as I could afford to put in the calicodaisy shop. I don't normally go for the animal prints, but a friend of mine has me all excited about a specific project she's come up with. Thus, I was on the "hunt"!

These fabrics are very smooth with a tight thread count for a high-end look. The black and white colors are nice and bright for a great contrast. I'm going to pair the zebra one up with some hot pink and green fabric, and I bought some zebra print ribbon for accenting as well.

I also have some leopard print, too, though not in my shop. I can get more, though, as I saw that print still at the fabric shop today. Just let me know. You can see it on the mouse-head applique above and on the covered buttons.
