AHHHHHHH. I am SO EXCITED to get to reveal’s this month’s Fabric for Pirates shipment!!!
Judy and I were a little nervous about our pick, because it’s a print with a little bit of a wild side to it. But we were also STOKED to send it out….because it’s freaking fabulous. Our selection this month was a brushed waffle knit in leopard. YAAAAAAAAS.

It was quite comical to see my husband’s expression when he saw 800 yards of leopard fabric sitting in our house. He and our kiddo think that I’m quite ridiculous with my love of leopard, so it kinda seemed like I fell off the deep end with the quantity of it being in our space. Once they came down from their shock and realized that I wasn’t trying to hoard it all for myself, they were okay with it. Ha! My space was so fun and happy with all of this leopard goodness filling the shelves.
Brushed waffle is my newest love. I’ve always loved a good waffle knit, but this base is scrumptious. It’s SO. SOFT. But it’s also super easy to work with, and can be turned into pretty much anything you’d like to make it. Of course you’d typically lean toward a sweater or cardigan, but I took my fabric and made it into more of a basic tee.
Well, actually, I turned it into a Favorite Tee.
One of the options with the Favorite Tee is a split side hem with a high-low look to it. I’ve been really into doing the whole “blogger tuck” or the “French tuck” with my tops lately, so I thought it’d be fun to do so with a split hem. I actually made my front length the t-shirt length, and the back is at a tunic length, so mine is actually more dramatic than the pattern intends but I dig. I think it was fun to mix up the hems that I’m typically wearing every day.
What do you think you would have made with your Fabric for Pirates shipment this month? Tell me! (Because I have more scraps laying around my house that just might need to be turned into another top!!)
