Poor Lily

Poor child........grandma didn't do such a good job.......should of stayed away from the fabric crayons!
Well it was a fun first try......I'll see if I can do any better :0)!

I love the fabric crayons! Now I have to try that! I thought you had pieced her shirt. Very clever, grandma! Lily is even cute in fabric!

I think you did great, and it's all such a learning experiece, isn't it!?

I think it is a wonderful interpretation.
Are we supposed to look like the picture? LOL
My hand has a mind of it's own, so whatever I do is not under my control;)
I like the idea of fabric crayons for shadows and highlights, great idea.

I like it! I thought the shirt was pieced, too.

Well the shirt is a recycled sweater ( the pink part) with a piece of red boxy printed red fabric on top.
I used the crayon on her face and lips and went a little overboard..I think it looks too blotchy....but for my first try I think its okay.......the eyes are kind of cool....and yes it is a learning experience.
If you click on the picture then again when the magnifier comes up you can see her face is two different fabrics.....the right side is a tiny check....her hair is a tiny plaid, from a recycled shirt, that is supposed to be like her tiny ginger curls.

Happy Sewing

that's what it's all about.. giving new things a whirl!
I bet you could continue to build on it. maybe trying something with the shadows.. I see that great smooshy pouty chin on the original photo in highlights... lovely golden locks!!
I find doing anything artistically using my child's photo is never to my satisfaction...it's never as perfect as they are!

Gotta experiement....and don't forget the quilting adds alot of details to bring it all together....keep going, can't wait to see the end result....

I like it and don't worry, you can use 'concealer' for the naughty fabric crayons. I didn't even notice really until you said something.
