and I thank you, Pretty Grievances, for hosting this Adventure!
Pretty Grievances invites us all to join Jungle January so we can “add animal to our life”. I don’t think I have ever worn or even owned any Jungle prints. I almost thought I wouldn’t be able to bag anything before Jungle January was over! Animal prints are about as common in my wardrobe as PINK! but Pretty Grievances’ Challenge was very, very tempting.
I hunted through my stash but came up empty-handed and having blown my fabric budget for the next few months already there was no way I was going to go near a fabric shop or on-line site! My sister, J.A.M. – JOANNA’S ARTISTIC MUSE, came to the rescue. She hunted through her stash and bagged a winner for me. Just enough Jungle print for my favourite TNT pattern, Butterick B5988.
My three easy pieces are cut out. I add some thread and some bias tape and I am done … and with not much fabric left over neither!!
I had a bit of a scare though, I left my fabric bits and pieces lying around unguarded and the Big Cats moved in for the kill.
My Jungle January is finished now and I plan on blending in with the Jungle, safe from all feline predators.
This is Sophie, the skittish one.
And on the right is Simon. Yes, his tongue is sticking out, as it quite often does!
I have made this pattern many times without problems. This time i left out all the darts for a more casual top. I have altered the length too sometimes.
For more Jungle Fun head on over to Pretty Grievances and have a peek at the wildlife!
