Recently, I got an email from a new friend, Ashley. Here's what she wrote:
"I was wondering if you've ever come across Auto Mechanic fabric? Something with Wrenches, impacts, tools, etc... I was just sitting here thinking how nice it would be to make my next cozy in this fabric if it can be found. I lost my 50 year old father to Cancer in August. He was an Auto Mechanic for many years, and then taught Automotive at school for the last few years. He was always teaching my 3 year old son (his only grandchild) how to fix certain things on a vehicle."
So...we searched and searched and found this automotive fabric on Ebay. The coordinating checkered print was from Joann Fabrics.
A felt button with two overlapping wrenches were the perfect finishing touch. I found the tiny metal wrenches on Etsy. They were shipped from England in record time.
I hope this Cozy blesses Ashley and helps her feel close to her dad for years to come :)
Sending big hugs to you, sweet lady :)
