Obama Kanga Fabrics - on eBay

Thanks to the special Black Threads reader who sent me a link last week to Obama Kanga Fabric on eBay (item 180312439834). The final bid for two panels was $61 + shipping. The winner receives fabric measuring 126" x 42." This Kanga fabric from East Africa bears the Swahili inscription: "Hongera Barack Obama. Upendo na amani ametujalia mungu." From the auction description, the phrase means "Congratulations Barack Obama. Love and Peace have been granted to us by God." Enjoy!

Wow. I live in Nairobi and they are being sold here for $10 per panel or less.

I've been on the hunt for some Obama fabric...not panels, but something smaller & modern. I just might have to print my own!!!
