fun with fabric

I've been experimenting with some of the dyed fabrics I made in Rayna Gillman's class. I made some more stamps with fun foam and stamped away. Even the dyed fabrics that I had been disappointed with seemed to benefit from the extra layers.
Once again, Matilda has to be in the photo.
Notice the two baby hummingbirds on one of my stamps!
It occurred to me that these fabrics might look great in clothing. So I made a blouse, mixing in some other fabric that I also stamped on. What do you think?
My dressmaking skills are still rusty. I'm still figuring out current-day pattern sizing versus current-day me sizing!

I love the blouse that you made! It is so cheery and of course in my fav color scheme. You did a great job.

Oh Cindy! It's absolutely adorable! I love the patterns together along with the great colors! Can't wait to see it in person (so I can order one!)

Thanks! I'll wear it at Long Beach. I'm already plotting another blouse with some more of the dyed fabric.

This totally made me smile, Cindy. I don't think anybody has used the fabrics they printed in my class in a GARMENT! It is just too cool!
Thanks for letting me know about this.
