That's really really cute (: I haven't watched Chobits in forever, but I love that show. Would you consider posting the pattern? (or selling a downloadable version of it on your etsy?) And, the fabric you used in the  background, where oh where did you get it?

I second what Sovietweed said about the pattern and also the background fabric.

And, I totally squealed when I saw the picture in the itty bitty box on the front page, I LOVE CHOBITS, I stenciled an Atashi tshirt for myself when I first started stenciling, it was awful, but I loved it anyway, because she's my fav!

Thanks!  The fabric is actually a purse--Tokidoki.  I bought mine on nordstrom.com--they aren't cheap, but I saved for a long time to get one.

As for the pattern, I'll get around to it eventually--it's still in scribbles in my notebook.

Oh my gosh I thought I recognized her. Chobits was actually an awesome anime. Chi was the cutest on there. I even like the theme song too. Atashi is the cutest one there. I will wait very patiently for the pattern*sits with hands crossed on lap*. You did great I am hitting This Rocks b/c it just does.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
