And now for the jeans...

This little cutie has on some hippie style jeans - decorations on the side seam and lower edge, and a cute tied belt. I have some blue jean fabric that has flowers in the design and thought it would be perfect for those jeans. Here you see it with my first idea for a tied belt.

I love the fabric for these jeans, and the pink belt would have been cute, but I already knew the background color I was going to use was a brown, and I wanted something that would work with brown better. So I ended up using this blue fabric. This started as a white fabric that had brown embroidery in it. I used textile paints and made it blue. It's been in my stash for quite some time waiting for the right art quilt to come along.

I wanted the creases on the jeans to be visible, so I used a white Inktense pencil to make them stand out more.

Here's what it looks like all put together:

I'll talk about the background in my next posts. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  1. This is coming along spectacularly. It's good to know that white Inktense pencil markings will show up on dark fabric. You are managing to capture not only the look of this precious child but also her perky personality. Love what you have done so far.
