Mini Me

Our Little Bits Miniature Quilt group decided to exchange small fusibles of ourselves based on this Circle of Friends pattern by Karen Eckmeier.  It has been very fun to try and personalize them and make them uniquely "you".  I am always impressed with the creative talent in our group, but this has been especially fun.  I can hardly wait to see all of the finished products.

So far I've only received one, from Max. Max is a knitter/crocheter as well as a quilter and she likes to make scarves, hence the scarf on her "fabric self".

Here is my fabric self!  I finally finished them up this week!  I was trying to think of something to make mine unique and came up with the book bag because I LOVE books and I LOVE to read.  I also added the teeny tiny, and I mean TINY maroon buttons because I had them, so why not?  I'm not sure where else I will use them, but they sure are cute!

We are also to make a spool of thread and a fabric block.  I chose to make mine green because next to orange I really like lime green.  I was going to make my shirt orange but with my blue "jeans" I didn't want to look too much like a big Bronco fan, so I opted for the gold colored flowered print and I like it.
Notice the "thigh gap"??  Only in my dreams....  But hey, in fabric I can look any way I want!
