Hot dog fabric would be great!  I just watched a show on batiking... bet it could be done that way easily!

it totally could - thats a great idea!

my mom used to be a professional batik artist and has done some really awesome stuff, so im sure someone could do some rockin hot dog fabric...if anyone does, please lost and let us ooh and ahh!  Wink

Ooo, artisy hot dogs a la Andy Warhol. Anyone else had those Papaya King hot dogs in NYC that crunch when you bite into them? I don't know what makes them "pop" when you bite into them, but they're pretty cool.

I have another comfort blanket to add to my to-do list. I promised my Sis&Bro in law that I would make one for them to donate to the hospital that is looking after my niece  Smiley

I just realized that with yesterday's project I am halfway to the 50 mark for the year already!  And it's only mid-April, so it looks like I am ahead of schedule Smiley  YAY, I'm productive!
