When I designed Jack and Jenny, it was after a rainy vacation to Greece where there were some donkeys in a field and I really wish I had my wellies with me so I could go slog through the mud to visit them. (Who would think to pack wellies for a beach vacation to Greece!?) They looked so cute out there, but there was no way I was going to be able to slosh through that field in order to get out there for a proper hello (especially since I was a teensy bit bitter about the rain putting a damper on my supposed to be sunny beach holiday!) The memory of those cuties out there sort of stuck in my head and in my round about way, my Jack and Jenny donkeys in rainboots collection was born. I just love what sweet faces donkeys have, don't you? And those big long ears? And now they get to wear sassy rain boots.
For inspiration, here are some projects I made using Jack and Jenny. I'm still hoping to make myself a pair of PJ bottoms soon :)
Skirts and tanktops for the Tam Ky Orphanage project
Baby blocks I made for a friend.
So in celebration of Donktober, for all of you donkey lovers out there, I'd love to send you a FQ set of my Jack and Jenny fabric (in all 3 colors!). Just leave me a comment here and I'll randomly draw a winner on Friday 10/26/12. If you have any donkey tales to share, I'd love to hear them. And if not, I'd love to know what you might make from the fabric. As always, international entries welcome. :) And don't forget to include a way for me to contact you. Once you've left me your comment, head over to Erin's blog for loads of other Donkey related projects! There's a darn cute sock donkey project that's calling my name...
