I am always late to the party. I just found the new "color me" fabric last week. I couldn't resist ordering some! I chose the Royal Life and Christmas Candy Border designs at fabric.com.
One pattern I have been eager to try is the Izzy Top by Climbing the Willow. I have seen so many cute versions and it's a free pattern!
I couldn't decide if the yoke should be white or a color. I am still not sure! I used white pique. There is a one-button closure at the back of the yoke. This is the kind of pattern you can make over and over again. I used about a yard of the fabric. I cut the yard along the middle, making 2 pieces about 22" long each x 1 "design" wide. Then I used the princess part for the front skirt and the clouds for the back skirt. You could certainly use twice as much and have the design go all around.
This is for my god-daughter Ella, for her 3rd Birthday. Her Mom loves to color with her and she's OCD enough so I know this will be well done- LOL!
Mouse House designed these fabrics and she offers a wonderful tutorial on making pillowcases from them. I plan to make my little boys cases for a little pre-Christmas project! I think we will have fun coloring them and using them!
I bet you're off to order some Color Me fabric right now, aren't you??
