Princess Sweater

She's coming to the market with me now to buy fabric. And chooses. Purple fabric for example. And  I am left wondering what on earth I am going to do with it.

Until I see it next to her family portrait of us. Purple and black and princesses actually go very well together. I am very proud of my little helper.

Well, I am the helper, really.

I'm not so fond of purple myself, but the sweater in combination with the drawing is so cute. Looks as if you're becoming each others perfect helpers :)

Love the purple princess, it is such a lovely idea... my boys would love to do this :) Hope you don't mind if I pin this to my pinterest board?

This is so adorable! Not being a huge fan of purple myself, I'm amazed by how good you've made it look:) Can you share your technique for transferring the drawing? It looks like your daughter is drawing it directly onto the fabric - is that right?

i love this and i'm SURE my daughter would too. i know just what you mean - it definitely feels like i'm the one that's the "helper" these days, and she is the creative director. :)

@ lucinda. I enlarged the original drawing with a copier and cut out eyes and the mouth. Pinned it to the fabric and we drew the outline onto the fabric. Then we used fabric paint and a brush to make the lines thicker. Hope this helps :)

Looks great! And the technique sounds like a lot of fun too :)

Lucinda said...

Thanks for the mini-tutorial! It sounds like a fun project to do with my 4 and 8 year olds. I just love coming to your blog to get inspiration - your pattern making blows me away!!

Can you take a picture of your "market" when you shop for your fabric? I just want to see what that is like! Like show me what shopping for fabric looks like in Barcelona, Espana!!! I'd seriously love to see that! lol! Very cute sweatshirt! You seem like a super sweet mom! :)
