Every once in a while I sign up to do a Minerva make. When I saw this amazing cactus print I could see a really fun make. Origionally I thought it might have been a heavier cotton perfect for a bag of positivity but when It arrived it was much lighter. I mused on it for a week or two. A cushion? A dress for a small? Too white for any of my known smalls. Outdoor fun means grass stains and mud. as it should be, might I add.
Should it be a top? Camber? That would work. Then the Zadie struck again. Decision made. I love this pattern.
Read more about it on the Minerva blog. All of the thoughts are my own. I’m gifted fabric in return for a blog post and I only make when the fabric draws me in. I no longer make for the sake of making. As much as I love it, years of making means I have a ridiculous stash and the inclination to make strikes less often.
However when inspiration does strike I have to get it out of my system before it blends into the background. So. Next is a bra that fits!!! Hopefully. Then a long winter coat. Pretty sure I have fabric for both of those…
