If you know me well, you know I couldn’t have gone the entire month without throwing some Brian Setzer at you..enjoy!

In the stylish Florida Loft, Coco has brought us  Vogue 1315 and I love it!! She’s entering the bonus round by the way!Image

The Garment Farmer is all Renfrewed up and proving that dogs and cats can get along- sartorially. See, Bruderlein? Image

Lisa, I am coming over to molest your fabric stash- you keep turning up the heat with these jackets!!!blue 1 good copy

Inge put out a call for help deciding what her first (I hope) pattern would be- we said jacket! She said Vest. Well, it’s an awesome vest!! junglejanuary3

Country Girl Couture slithers up next with a gorgeous Alma. Belt! Adding the danger of snake and the sweetness of a bow belt is a fab contrast- love it! Image

Shanni has taken what she refers to as ‘hideous jungle print’ and made a gorgeous portrait blouse- seriously, I want this fabric! Go see her blog! 8394732851_d5a4e9153b

    So many Steamy hot garments! The jungle sure has been roaring and rumbling! I must get sewing or the month will be over. You all have been such and inspiration!


  2. Oh my, some more real winners here! I must somehow steal that bowtie belt. And who doesn’t want to be serenaded by a stray cat?? I am about 3/4’s of the way through my Jungle January entry (trench style coat). And every so often, I make “eeeeeee” noises, because I’m so excited. It’s my first coat, ever!! And made 250% better due to animal print fabric 🙂


  3. This has been just the best start to a year, looking at all these ‘wild-women’ in their element…there really are a lot of brilliant sewers out there who can rumble in the jungle during January…J


  4. I want to thank you for this challenge!! I would of never thought to make anything like this if it wasn’t for all the awesomeness I’ve been seeing! I love the way it turned out and I will never look at animal print the same! Call me a jungle junkie now!


  5. I found your blog via Chris Lucas’s – and immediately spotted both Brian Setzer AND animal print in the same post!!! Truly the most wonderful things in the world. I’ve actually inadvertently joined in with Jungle January – my first make of 2013 was a zebra-print sweater dress. It’s lovely seeing all these wonderful makes and fabulous prints together.
