Ooooh! Looky What I Won!

A few weeks ago I entered a competition on the lovely and talented Miss Ruth's blog.  And my prize?  I chose this fabulous Paco Peralta pattern:

Also included were some fabulous instructions and top tips - thank-you Ruth!  I look forward to making this up.  I am not too sure what fabric, but it will be making an appearance very soon!

Now, I know you are wondering about the rather quirky (and un-ironed) fabric that makes up the background . . . and here it is in glorious close-up:

It is rather fun in a really weird way.  I bought it after seeing an overshirt made out of a comic strip on Sew Essentially Sew's blog.  Ever since I saw Graca's version, I have been on the hunt for some similar fabric, and I found this version in the discount 'bin'.  Woo Hooo!  I plan to make a similar overshirt - I may be totally creepy and use the same pattern (Vogue 7848 - I have it in my stash) . . . . I hope Graca does not mind having a stalker.  I really am OK when you get to know me!!

So there you have it - a couple of new projects in the planning stage :)


  1. Nothing better than planning projects - can't wait to see them finished...J

  2. that fabric is fun! It will make a great overshirt. Can't wait to see your new skirt. g

  3. I'm glad the pattern arrived with you and look forward to your finished garment. Love the fun fabric too.

  4. What a great pattern and fabric as well :)

  5. I have to say that I think you have great taste in fabric! Sweet, that it was on sale. And I promise that I won't be creeped out if you choose to use the same Vogue pattern. I'll accept the fact as a compliment. The pattern pieces in Vogue 7848 are perfect to showcase the comic fabric. That skirt pattern looks lovely too.

  6. Fun fun fabric. Can't wait to see the shirt!

  7. That fabric is bizarre and hilarious--it's going to make a great top!
