    though the colours and type seem a bit dated, it still looks really nice

  • love love love! i thought of the pixies too. i think the type for the last two are refreshing too, fantastic! can i send you clothing to embroider? ill send money too!

  • wa!wonderful!~nice!

  • Cheers for all the comments!! These are all hand sewn and are inspired by song lyrics, some mis heard and mixed up but we kept the Pixies lyric untouched as we really liked the sentiment.

    James, here’s our email (hi@maricormaricar.com) if you’d like to get in touch. Thanks again for the kind words, it’s great to hear people like our stuff!
