Oona’s Fat Quarter Challenge – Fabric reveal

OONA'S DRUNKEN fat quarter CHALLENGE - Workroom Social - Sewing and Screen Printing Studio in Brooklyn, NY

She said it couldn’t be done, but I say “Oh yes it can!” And to prove it I am participating in Oona’s Fat Quarter Challenge. In short Oona has graciously given me 9 fat quarters (her Project Sewn winnings!) to make an adult sized garment for myself.

THE CHALLENGERS

Carolyn from Diary of a Sewing Fanatic
Amity from Lolita Patterns
Devra (the queen of patchwork!) from Puu’s Door of Time
and Me!

In our discussions about this challenge, I had two questions for Ms. Oona.

1. Do I have to like the garment? No.
2. Do I have to wear the garment in public? YES.

I didn’t look through the other challengers’ bundles, but I hear someone got some pink unicorns. I kind of feel at a bit of a disadvantage here. Surely, unicorns will win!

I’m planning to start work on this challenge soon because I think I’ll need the time. Until then, I’m taking suggestions on things to make! Any thoughts?
