Unusual Source of Inspiration

My younger daughter has designed a dress and commissioned me to make it. She would like the skirt to have zoobles on it. In the photo above, the actual zooble is in the middle, surrounded by my reverse applique-and-sequin depictions of zoobles that will go on the skirt. I made the wings out of sheer fabric, and used different colors for the face/body. The stitching is bobbinwork using pearle cotton. I jumped right in without testing, so the ones I did last came out better than my first one. My daughter likes her zooble skirt so far.

    Well they sure are cute little characters and the way you chose to execute them implies light, airy and transparency so well. Your daughter’s skirt is a lovely happitat for them.

    It’s fun and what a creative daughter you have. Are you planning on teaching them to sew?

      If they want to learn I will certainly teach them. It’s hard for them, though, because they see me sewing and everything I make turns out pretty much as I planned. They wonder why they can’t get the same results.

    How cute, and what a lucky daughter to have a skirt exactly as she envisioned it. I admire her creativity.

      What’s funny is, the things I make them never come out exactly as envisioned. Sometimes they like them, sometimes they don’t.
