How do you like my fabric there? Actually, it's not my fabric - it's Anneke's and she kindly donated it to the swap at the great Belgian meet in July, and I swiped it because silk cotton yes please. Thank you Anneke! Here it is being red with some red October leaves:
So, another irresistible twitter challenge, and luckily not a very challenging one: make something red. In October. Hey presto, #RedOctober! I even have matching red lining already, so basically this should be easy. Except.
Except, what oh what shall I actually make with it, people? I tried draping myself in it, in case that inspired a revelation. It didn't, unless you count "don't wear that print on your boobs" as revelatory. Plus I seriously had a photo taking disaster.
How hard can it be?? I only wanted to show my face for once!! Hello!
Anyway, now I'm thinking this:
I've got about a 1.5 m square of fabric, and as I'm on the short side I think it should be enough. Plus, it's an excuse to buy another pattern. Although, this one didn't grab me at all when it was launched - funny isn't it how the fabric speaks inspiration into things?
Look how light and floaty...
Anyone got any better ideas that might save my pattern cash?? Or just, y'know, better ideas.
Are you doing #RedOctober? What are you making? Can I see your fabric too??
