Fugly Fabric Make... yuk

In the Hobbycraft sale recently I got my hands on this fabric; it was cheap and I just knew my Mother would love it ~ and she did.
In the words of my Granny, 'there's nowt as queer as folk' ~ personally I think it's awful, and perhaps scary at best!!



Imagine spending time working with it, I am a little traumatised!
Mother has an intermittent lower back ache and uses a plug in heat pad, and she has lost the cover for it so requested a new one. Well you guessed it, this is it, lined with some fleece and a velcro top it couldn't be easier.


Oh she was delighted with it ~ honestly I think I would cry if someone brought me this.


There's nowt as queer as folk!?!

Oh my god, they had that same fabric on sale at my local Hobbycraft too! There was also some horrible horse fabric... looks like the horse and cat-loving purchaser for all branches went a bit mad there!

Alex said...

I love cats but cat fabric and other related items are very often creepy as hell. That fabric is the perfect example! Ah well, as long as the recipient likes it.

ps - I can't do eyeshadow either, that photo was taken after a makeover thingy at MAC!

hmm, no i don't think that exactly falls into the 'cute fabric' category, but nice that you found a use for it ;)

That's a lot of cats! :) x

There are a lot of cats but cats are good and I'd rather like a dress or maxi skirt just because it's totally silly.
Lovely thing for your Mum though, I bet she's really touched. xxx

lemonade kitty said...

Being a cat lover I quite like it too!! lol Lucey xx

Bethany said...

Oh. Oh my. I'm a dog person myself. All of these kitties leering at me give me the willies.
And I was sitting here chuckling at the Fugly and WTF you used...that's what I would have said too.

daisychain said...

Someone in my past had that fabric, I swear I recognise it.

Memory Heirlooms said...

Haha, I saw that very same fabric too in my local Hobbycraft!

FoofandFaff said...

Hmm that many cats at once sure is creepy, they're not very cheery are they?! :)

Pene said...

I'm allergic to cats and swear I'm coming out in hives just looking at it LMAO!!

Jacey said...

It wouldn't be quite so bad if they were cute adorable kitties, but they are quite odd !!
Thankyou so much for the run down on how to do my blog button, very much appreciated. xxx

What a lovely daughter you are! I don't love the fabric but think it would be nice for a cat lover! Hope you are well xx

Ali said...

Lol - hmm it is quite scary - but as long as your mum liked it - thats what counts :-)

Lucy said...

Hahaha, my landlady when I was studying in France had a pair of trousers in that fabric, or one very similar, couldn't believe my eyes at the time. But now I'm thinking ... a skirt ... in a sort of ironic "I know it's hideous" kind of way... ??? Glad your Mam liked it though.

Loving the mental image of you sewing your boys' clothes actually TO them as you do it on the go! You don't iron clothes while they're being worn as well do you?! x

dosierosie said...

I'm a dog person myself so i'm afraid that wouldn't be allowed in my house, but I know someone who would love it.

My mum was slightly cat obsessed.......perhaps it's something that happens to us as we get older.....perish the thought!

jane p said...

I salute you. Not only were you able to touch the fabric, you made something out of it. You're a brave woman.

Jacquie said...
