My April Minerva Make – Zebra Dress!
A glimpse into the inner workings of my mind when deciding on my next project for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network…
I could choose some of Minerva’s lovely denim and make a pair of jeans! *looks at denim* Ooh that’s nice denim. That would be perfect. I’ll just have a quick look at the quilting fabrics…
OH ZEBRAS YES I NEED THAT!! I could make a zebra dress.
But would I wear a zebra dress?
Yes I would.
But I’m a mum walking kids to school and everyone’s in jeans wearing black and I’ll look out of place.
But if I make it with an A-line skirt then it’s practical and it won’t blow up in the wind.
But really I should make jeans because that is a good and admirable skill.
No, there is a reason this is quilting fabric, it’s because it isn’t meant for dresses.
Then again quilting fabric is excellent quality and it wears and washes well and it’s 100% cotton poplin. And look the zebra fabric is red, and red is my favourite colour! I could wear it with black tights so it’s definitely practical.
I really ought to make jeans.
I could make jeans next time, maybe.
