Bow is not Hello Kitty‘s privilege, it can be more than a simply bow tie, gift wrap or bow hairclip. Make your own bow pillow, bow scraf, bow shirt, bow bracelet, bow necklace, bow ring, bow clutch and more. It’s so nice to see bows all around everyday!

Buy Knit Fabric Online

Jay-Cyn Designs Organic Knit Fabric by birch

Jay-Cyn Designs Organic Knit Fabric by birch

I love knits! And I am trying to buy organic & more sustainable where possible, which is one of the reasons I love the organic cotton knit especially for babies and kids.


Frankly it is really difficult to find good quality knits online if you aren’t buying it in person, I can’t tell you how many times I purchased knits online and the fabric screwed up badly. I am nervous about what I might be getting that I’d rather choose some good-quality brands like Monaluna and Birch Fabrics (I got them from Modes4u Fabric Shop).
