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 :)
