New This Week: Rainbow Connection

Recently I was invited to participate in an online-auction for the Fairy Godmother’s Design group Anniversary Launch. This is one of several groups on Facebook that host small auctions with amazing designers. I am honored to be invited. The theme of this particular auction is Rainbow Connection. Being as I primarily sew for boys, Rainbows are a tough theme. Here is what I came up with, though.

This blackboard fabric with mathematics theme is as close to rainbow fabric for boys I could find. Maybe it was Phineas and Ferb’s opening song playing in the other room, but I thought that the theme fit these two brothers perfectly.

Completely by accident, I noticed the snap closures made a perfect little Mickey head.

My second project was Toy Story inspired. While not exactly the whole rainbow, it is definitely colorful.

And my final project, which was something rattling around in my mind for a long time. (I bought the fabric last summer!) was this Pete’s Silly Sideshow inspired dress. I made the skirt with adjustable buttonhole elastic.
