Even though I´m not patient enough to sew I am a big fan of well designed fabrics. 

The wax prints on african fabric have been among my favourites for a while now. If I was a more talented tailor I´d like to design a line of children´s clothes made from wax print fabric with animal prints. I think they´d make great little  dresses: simple cut, colorful design. I´m a bit sick of the "cute" and "retro" prints on fabric that you can find everywhere. (Not only for children. On grown ups it´s even worse) The animal prints are simple, graphical and happy without obviously being designed for kids. I like that.

Until I become a very talented tailor and children´s fashion designer I´ll use my wax print fabrics to display them on my walls like paintings. For me this print is perfect for the bedroom because the material is warm and cozy (much nicer than sleeping under a frame) and the print is not too serious (which is  the attitude I prefer in the bedroom anyways!)
