This is what I came up with!
A dress inspired by a Fox Quilt Block
Fox Ears Headband complete with cute little flowers
Zipper Pouch featuring a miniature Fox Quilt Block~Rag Quilt Style
online shop, even creating rag quilt patterns, so that others can learn to make these out of the box styles of rag quilts.
So when I was issued the challenge of incorporating 2 things that I love doing (one that I am pretty good at and the other, not so much).
My inspiration for this dress came from Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Fox Quilt Pattern. I have been seeing this quilt block pop up all over instagram and have been dying to try it out. So I knew which quilt block I would give a go. Next up for me was the hard part, figuring out how to incorporate it into clothing. Wearable clothing at that!
Its all business in the front and party in the back.
Next up, no little girl outfit is complete without a cute headband, Right? So La Bella Rose Boutique came to the rescue with the cute headband and flowers. I then decided last minute that she really needed some ears. Every Fox needs Pointy Ears!
I think she was more excited about having a purse than she was about her outfit. I haven't had a ton of experience sewing with zippers, and I had just ordered these cute little lace zippers, so I gave it a try adding one onto her cute little clutch.
A few little side notes: The white shirt came from Target. I didn't purchase the quilt block. I couldn't find anywhere what size the finished block was to know if it would work for this dress. So I just winged it. It would have been a heck of a lot faster to just buy the pattern, but then I didn't know if the finished size would be right. I didn't dare take the chance. Plus, at 11 pm at night when I finally had a second to sit down and get this outfit going, I didn't want to take the time waiting for a reply. Patience is definitely something I need to work on *wink, wink* I used fabrics from Riley Blake Designs. They are all 100% cotton.
It took me a couple photo shoots to get this girl and the weather to cooperate with me. She gave me lots of sad pouty faces:
and then lots of sass:
