Well here it is, January 2013. Some said we wouldn’t make it to Christmas, but what did the Mayans know?? Happy New Year everybody! I guess I should be listing my “new” resolutions, going over the good and bad makes of the past year, but that will have to wait until later. The news of the day is definitely Pretty Grievances‘ Jungle January.
The idea is simply to make something ravishing with an animal print fabric. Now generally I don’t do animal print, and almost certainly not fur, the stuff gets everywhere! I wanted to join in, but wasn’t sure what to do exactly. Cue a browse on Ditto Fabrics‘ website. I found this:
Now I can see a sort of 60’s style cropped swing-coat for Daughter no 2 here, think turquoise lining, or emerald, or even fucshia pink! I have ordered a sample, which should arrive pretty pronto, knowing the service from Ditto. I really hope it’s not too fluffy, because I think this could really work! 😀
Look out January, the animals are on the loose!

I’m a sucker for animal print, and have a piece already in stash so I think I might just run with this.
It’s going to be really interesting to see what everyone comes up with!
Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!! Stop tempting me with new fabric!!!! That is just fabulous…especially as I’ve been eyeing up the new Burberry giraffe print coat!
oo, I know! I saw that on Anne’s page after I’d found this beauty!
That’s where I saw it and am considering pawning the children so I can buy it!
Lol! That coat is the coolest animal print garment I’ve seen! Definitely worth 2 children! 😀
I thought so. 😉
That fabric is gorgeous! I hope it’s more like a velvet than fur so you can use it!
Definitely! If it’s velvety I will use it, no problem!
Oh man I think any of the linings would be amazing but my vote is emerald and as shiny as you can find!! Never heard of giraffe print before either ….
Yeah, the brightest, baddest jewel-like lining on the planet! Perhaps with sparkly bits in?? ;p
Ooooo sparkles …
I think I have found a kindred spirit.. sparkles.. mmmm 😀
Mouth watering! I was thinking of joining this – it might clear some of the animals from my stash!
Go for it! It’s going to be great to see what we all come out with! 😀
I’ve never worn or sewed with animal print, but I’m always attracted to the graphic quality of giraffe – I really like this fabric…. perhaps I’ll have to do some sleuthing! lol
I can’t wait for the sample to arrive! I really hope it’s not too fluffy..
