Barbie in a Bag
I was asked to create a Barbie something for a special birthday gift calendar. Now that the gift has been given and the surprise has taken place, I can show you.
That's a Basic Barbie, and I did a little embroidery on her jeans and t-shirt. Then I made her a special personalized quilt.
Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous photo shot for the calendar. (Don't look to closely to see the cat food dish in the background. Like I said, soooo glamorous!)
Did you see my How to Draw Barbie Tutorial, over on the Sketchbook Challenge blog? I drew her in my sketchbook, then scanned and printed her onto fabric prepared for an inkjet printer. Then I cut her out, fused her to the quilt and to the gift bag. (See my gift bag tutorial here, for some more cool ideas with these muslin bags.)
Wouldn't this make a great gift? You can make one yourself, or you can buy my one-of-a kind Barbie in a Bag in my JaneVille online Esty shop.
