Hillary's Blinds competition!

Hillary's Blinds are running a competition at the moment...they send you one metre of fabric from their new 'Country Retreat' blinds collection, you make something with it, then blog about it...and you could win £1000! 
Of course I had to have a go! I picked the 'Wild Poppies Vermillion' fabric, and thought it would go really well with some denim - so I cut up a couple of old pairs of jeans I had hanging around, and this is the result!

The pattern I used is the Farbenmix 'Jackie'.

I wanted to do something a little different, with mixes of fabrics, textures, colours and stitches as that's what I like, and thought this fabric would be perfect with it's reds, purples, pinks, subtle green, and cream - a lot to work with! The denim pockets are taken from the jeans, reshaped, and added to the jacket, and the back adjuster came from the back of one of the pairs of jeans!
I plan on wearing it this afternoon as the sun is shining to go collect my son from school lol!

Thanks for looking, and wish me luck!
