Cute kitty print! I think the marigold snaps would match that. I wish I had some bright red for you, because those would be cute as well. I think the marigold would match on the car print too. I love the recycled longies! I really need to try to make some of those!

Actually I ordered bright red when I got my press!
How much would the standard count for the pieces be for the navy and the marigold and teal. I guess the count of 100 caps and 75 sockets and 25 studs would be better than the 100, 50, 50 since I use more sockets!

100, 75, 25 of marigold, teal and medium navy would be $9.00...shipping would be about $1.50.

Actually Joann's is having another 50% off sale on flannel- I think it's just solid colors though.

Apparently I need to go to Walmart! That's two cutenesses with fleece from there! Love the flannel dipes! what did you use for the soaker?
