Rorschach Teddy
by Oriana Laura Follow

A few months ago I had to make a teddy for a class and I decided to purchase the ugliest fabric I could find since I knew I would never wear it...needless to say the garment sat being damned in a corner for a few months unfinished...until today! Thank you gnarly winter weather for forcing me to finish old sewing projects. This was fairly simple to put together and I was actually quite pleased with the way it turned out. The fabric is even starting to grow on me a bit. :) Oh, and it fits snug like a glove. 

If you stare at it long enough you start to see faces in the fabric. So far I have found a sloth and a frog, and my friend found a horse.

    I don't think it is an ugly fabric.  It turned out really sexy.

    You did a great job.

    I agree with Nora and was suprises when I red the text, I think it looks nice, love the coordination lace.

    Did you use a pattern or draft it?

    Oriana Laura replied 8 years ago

    Thank you! I used a pattern from a school called Portland Sewing. I did have to make a few changes for it to actually fit me the way I wanted it to.

    I actually thought, wow, what an amazing teddy with such cool fabric, so innovative and fun! That's why I clicked on the picture. I think it looks fabulous, I'm very inspired. Which pattern did you use

    Oriana Laura replied 8 years ago

    Thank you! The fabric on the bolt looked awful, but once I cut it I actually started to like it. It's a print that definitely looks better in small doses. The pattern is made by a school in Portland called Portland Sewing. I see myself making a few more of these in my near future. :)
