9am There’s a knock at the door, it’s the postman with a package. For me, yipeeee!!!
9.02am I open the package. It’s fabric from Luckyshop0228. Whoop! whooop!
9.10am I find myself happy dancing. It’s OK, no one’s watching.
9.30am I wash my fabric. 30 degrees on a quick 20 min wash.
10.30am I hang my fabric on the radiator to dry. Mmmm!!! I love that smell.
11.30 My fabric is dry. Hurrah!
12.30 Using my trusted friend of a pattern, The Ziggy top, I cut my fabric. Oooo! I’m so excited.
1.30 I begin to sew. Ahhhh! therapy.
2.45 I’m finished. Rama lama lama ka dingity dinga dong!
How’s that for the speed? Oh yeah I’m a sewing ninja I tell you. Call Mark McKinley. It’s officially a record. From knock at the door to splendiferous Ziggy top in 6 hours. I’m officially amazing.
About The Ziggy top
The Ziggy top is one of of those blank canvas patterns. Sew it as it is, or ‘just add detail‘. For Scout’s mushroom Ziggy I simply lengthened the back, keeping the front as is. And although already a roomy boxy style, I sized up for longevity.
You wouldn’t think that by cutting on the fold, it would leave mushroom for error. But somehow, and I really can’t explain it, I managed to make one side longer than the other making a diagonal ‘feature’ at the front.
But I kinda like it. I only wish that it was more of a drastic difference so that it looks deliberate. Next time I’ll exaggerate the wonky.
I could be on to something.
OK, enough pictures.
Model: Mine, also comes in older, bigger, taller size.
