Never a cross word

by Erin on September 12, 2012

But always a crossword dress! Thanks to Sarah Dyer (aka @colorkitten) for pointing out to me that there’s a new crossword novelty print quilting fabric out there, in multiple colorways.

I was really tempted by the aqua, but I went for a more classic (if not more subtle) look:

Moda Crossword fabric

Right now I’m thinking that a) this will be another 9929, because they’re SO EASY and b) this means I should really go back to the ACPT next year, huh? It’s been a while since I showed up in a crossword-puzzle dress, ready to place far, far down in the standings.

Check out the Spoonflower typewriter fabric contest this week.

love the fabric. have you ever wanted to devise a clever message in the squares – like an acrostic of your name and leave some squares blank. use embroidery floss or fabric paint pens.
(just ignore me, I’m on my own planet. I want to use it to cover my kid’s school books and fill in the title in the squares.)

Your taste in dresses is so much FUN. The Secret Lives your dresses are living must be very happy ….

Hi Erin,

I confess, I looked b/c of assumptions of what it could be…
(a) George Clooney or the Fantastic Mr. Fox
(b) I thought it would make you look foxy….
(c) I was so taken with You Don’t Have To Be Pretty

but I like this very much.

Enjoy browsing!

Oh, thanks! I didn’t buy any more crossword fabric but there were some new alphabet prints I hadn’t seen …
