I thought my sewing bins of fabric were organized but apparently not. It took me awhile to find what I was looking for, must label the bins with more detail.

I was searching for some leopard print fabric. I'm inspired by all the animal print that is out there. Leopard print belts, leopard print shoes, leopard print cat suits...

Don't worry, I'm kidding about the leopard print cat suit. I was just checking if you were awake.

I think, I'm ready to jump on the leopard look with my own version of a leopard print garment.

Now were is it?

Here it is!

About four metres of leopard print corduroy. Isn't it lovely?

Yup, I did say corduroy.

I bought it years ago when Fanny Fabrics closed down in Winnipeg. ~sigh~ So many fabric stores closing down in this city. But that is another blog post.

The fabric is pre-shrunk and ready to go and I have got my hands on the Marcy Tilton jacket pattern, Vogue 8752 that I would like to use.

But there will be left over fabric. What else should I make?  A cap, perhaps?

Shelleyj from New Vintage Lady has a super cute 1940s style beret pattern up on her etsy shop.

What do you think?  Any suggestions?
