Tula Pink's Tabby Road Has Arrived!

Tula is a favorite designer of ours--And she didn't disappoint this time around either! "Tabby Road" is themed around cats, featuring cat food, mice, kittens, and even some hairballs (the adorable kind, not the usual!).

We got the WHOLE line, including all available precuts! It coordinates beautifully with all past Tula prints, which we also have a great selection of. Come on in and see it in person!
