No, really… this post is going to blow your mind for multiple reasons. First of all, prepare to be blown away by my terrible photography skills! If anyone knows of a way to photograph a blanket that doesn’t make it look like a giant lump of fabric, let me know. My space is limited, so this is what you get. Sorry.
Secondly, I shall amaze you with my follow through. Yes, folks, I have managed to keep my January goal! Granted, I gave myself a ridiculously easy one, but I followed through nonetheless. Here’s the proof!
Innit cute? Little pirate boy and his swashbuckling whale friend! And a little octopus that you can just barely see in the photo! What could be better?
Funny you should mention it… That brings us to astoundingness number three. THE MOST PERFECT FABRIC IN THE WORLD.
I am known for hyperbole, yes, but in this instance I am not kidding. There are a few things I’m obsessed with, and this fabric brings them all into one perfect little bundle.
Let’s get a close up on that, shall we? And also ignore how freaking blurry it is. No matter what I did, every picture of this side came out blurry. That’s life.
It’s a monkey. It’s a monkey pirate. And this fabric completes the hat trick with a monkey pirate pun. Puns are quite possibly my favorite form of humor in the history of ever. But folks, while this fabric is completely made of win, it also tells me one very terrifying thing. There is another person out there that thinks exactly like I do. I’m not really sure the world needs that.
My only regret about this blanket is that it’s only 2 yards long. Despite my short stature, I prefer 2.5 yards for my blankets. But the first pirate fabric had been something that someone got cut and decided they didn’t want. I figured I’d take it off the store’s hands. Since I had that fabric first, when the MOST PERFECT FABRIC IN THE WORLD came along, I knew I needed to cut it to match. But at least I have my new favorite blanket. I won’t even tell you how long I’ve been holding on to the fabric (at least two years….).
