Car Fabric for Boy’s Room

Modes4u.com has a good selection of fabric for boys, including cars, airplanes, dinosaurs, robots, pirates and more, with reasonable price and excellent customer service. The shipping from Hong Kong doesn’t take too long, which my parcels usually arrived in 1-2 weeks with tracking number. The only problem is spending lots of time in the shop as everything is so cute!

 

Finally I have ordered the car fabrics for the big boy room revamp and some washi tapes, which altogether added up over $78 to enjoy the free shipping. (Fingers crossed xx)

I have many scarves in different colors and patterns, but all are made of very thin, lightweight knit fabric which could not protect much in the cooler weather.


Why don’t make a super easy and warm infinity scraf with flannel fabrics in just 30 minutes of time?
