All Operations Ground to a Halt...

Well we received a panel today that was so cute that all operations ground to a halt while Jeannie and I studied it and tried to figure out what to do with it! This is the Paper Dolls Panel from Blue Hill Fabrics and I am totally smitten!

Here's what we came up with so far:

1. Make a traditional paper dolls set by fusing the panel onto a backing fabric and cutting out the dolls and clothes - stay stitching around the edge would probably be a good idea. I thought that putting velcro on the doll and the back of the clothes would be a good idea - Jeannie thought it would spoil the old-time fun of the tabs -- then she came up with the idea of putting a bit of velcro on the tabs!
2. Make a little wallhanging with the dollie appliqued to a background and then have the clothes there ready to put on the dollie (with velcro).
3. Make a whole quilt with each of the dollies in her own square - then put a pocket on the quilt and put all the clothing in there!
4. Jeannie wants to make a traditional quilt using all the bits and pieces but her ideas are still percolating.

You can order yours for 9.99 using this link: Paper Dolls Panel (the panel is 23" x 43").
