Outrageous Outfits!

What to wear – maybe those rainbow I Dream of Jeannie pants, or maybe that tie dye shirt, or maybe those skinny jeans… so many options!  Too bad the outfits are only 8 ” tall.  Rats!

Playing with Steam a Seam and fabric sure is fun!  Even though I can’t draw worth beans, I can do quite well with just free handing with a pair of scissors.  Although I’m sure the fashion police would be horrified at my combinations!   You can tell I have a very active imagination and had so much fun making this quilt.  I basically tried to come up with the craziest color combinations possible and the shape of the tops and bottoms were just how I happened to cut them out.  Hope this quilt makes you smile 🙂

    1. You just made me smile Diana!!! Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂
      I really did have a blast making this quilt. I also tried once (and only once) to make an outfit that was closer to 12″ tall. Oh my gosh what a funny disaster that was! Since I was just freehand cutting with scissors, the larger size accentuated all of the irregularities and imperfections. It looked so bad that I tossed it. The smaller size is very forgiving to look at – the mistakes just look small too 🙂 I was so surprised that the scale made such a big difference. Anyway it was a good experiment 🙂 Have a great day!
