IF: Transportation

When I was a kid, I read the book The Littles Take a Trip and totally fell in love with it and in the idea of little people! I imagined there were entire cities all around me that were so tiny that I could not possibly see them with my human-sized eyes!

I would even leave out my matchbox cars and hot wheels for them at night ... just incase....

This transportation scene I designed for Michael Miller Fabrics is called Tot Town.

Gosh what a busy picture sadly the small viewing on my computer screen doesn't do this wonderful piece of art justice.

I played with little cars on a striped rug when I was a girl! I like the detail on the fabric!

It's a good thing you can run with a bruised arm! I hope your half marathon is a fun one filled with fast miles and lots of fun!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and seeing what I did with your amazing fabric!!! I can't make them fast enough for friends. I was so bummed when they discontinued those two fabrics. Why? They are adorable and there really isn't anything out there nearly as cute. You did an amazing job with it! I'm honored to have met you. I really admire your artistic abilities and I hope you continue to find wonderful outlets for such a great talent. Best of luck always!
