Okay some details ~
Friday night I met up with some sewists to have dinner and welcome Lauren to town. While at dinner seated next to Amity (Lolita Patterns), Devra and across from the awesome Marcy, a challenge was born. See we were discussing how fat quarters are usable for real people's clothing and Marcy disagreed, her argument is here! So she challenged us to take some fat quarters she'd recently received and make a garment from them.
Here is my bundle ~
And the rules ~
- It must be a garment.
- No accessories.
- No handbags.
- No childrens clothing.
- The outfit must incorporate all of the 9 fat quarters included in the bundle
- I got an exemption from this rule because I really want to be able to wear my garments to work!
- It must be finished by April 30th.
- We are allowed to use other fabrics to mix with the fat quarters.
I'm actually excited about this challenge! I've been thinking hard about this since I received my allotment. I know I can make some fashionable work gear for my very professional workplace with my fat quarters combined with some choice pieces of fabric from the collection.
The other participants ~
So stay tuned for more on my ideas and garments for "The Oona's Drunken Fat Quarter Challenge!"
...as always more later!
