I'll tell you a little secret. (It's not really a secret.) You can tell when I have finished a project at the last minute, because I'll be modelling it myself. That is definitely my last-resort backup option!
It is almost the end of May, and I'm just squeezing in my Whimsy design for this month.
For a little while (and possibly still), there seemed to be a lot of leopard print going around on the blogs I read, and it got into my brain, along with the quote I've used for my whimsy's title. I don't know if this quote is attributed to someone, but it is being used so much on the internet that I couldn't find out!
I loved the idea of making a leopard-print flower, and wanted to experiment with using different fabrics with this hand-made flower technique I learned at the last International Millinery Forum, in a class taught by Serena Lindeman.
I managed to find a leopard-print top in an op-shop (don't worry, it was ugly) and here is the result!
Now I just need to get the June design made in time to get it modelled by someone else...
