Thanks. Will have a look.
Seen a few on celtic fusion as well. Seems like you have to like owls! Will keep looking for boyish prints.

I get mine from Celtic Fusion Fabric. They have Robert Kaufman Cool Cords. I have made shortalls with the owls and trousers with the diamonds which look like golfer pants!

Not bought from these yet, but am looking....

More girly than boys, but the squirrels look good

I love the golfer print, thats a must, and the squirrels are cool.
Do you think you could put a boy in the pig print? I really like it but is it too girly because its pink?

I've been wondering the same as I like the pigs aswell. I thought maybe a pair of trousers with orange or brown gingham pockets and waist to add a bit of boy colour.

People often say my little boy is a girl anyway as he has long curly hair, but it is adorable and I won't cut it.

Looking forward to a pic when you are done.
