Dark Roast Nights


Sometimes it can be hard to find just the right fabric to make a gift for the men in our lives.  I was looking for some fabric to make my college-age son a pillowcase and everything I had seen was either too feminine or too childish, but this past weekend I found this manly coffee cup fabric at the quilt shop:

It's from a fabric line called "Espresso Yourself" by Wilmington Prints, and had a great coordinating fabric with names of coffees on it.

All it needed was a dash of Dark Roast Brown for an accent stripe and a fun pillowcase was born:

I wonder....If you sleep on a pillowcase made from coffee fabric, does the caffeine keep you awake?
