My primary sewing motivation is awesome and adorable fabric. When it comes to patterns and styles... well, I think I can honestly say that I'm not completely lacking in adventuresomeness but I do always have 4 to 6 "safe" patterns that I use over and over again. This is one of those.
First I have to show you some close-ups of the fabric. These kitties might be adorable but they're also rather bratty. Just look at those faces. They are definitely up to no good.
Especially this one on the sewing machine.
Now this one in the flower pot looks sort of sweet but still probably up to something.
Of course somebody had to get into the knitting. It's traditional.
I bought the fabric from eQuilter over a year ago. The pattern is New Look 6963. At first I was thinking of making it with sleeves but I like my insect shirt so much I decided to do the same thing with this fabric. Which was a good thing because it turned out that I didn't have enough fabric for the sleeves anyway.
And I love it! I think it might look better with my black jeans but only crazy people wear black in Oklahoma in the summertime. But, with the jeans and a long cardigan this could work for early spring too.
