This is a design for a yard of fabric with a cut and sew skirt for a girl of six to eight years. I have to proof it, but hopefully, in the near future you will be able to buy to make up yourself, for a little girl who likes swishy circle skirts. I couldn't resist adding the contrasting stripey background as I wanted the yard of fabric to be pretty in its own right, now I'm wondering if I should produce the background as a stripey fabric part of the nautical collection I am creating.

|Alfred's Happy People fabric design|
He drew his happy people. I scanned them. He chose his pallet then using a tablet and pen 'coloured everything in'. I helped with the layers in photoshop but basically its all his work.
I am amazed how children as young as my smallest is has no fear or inhibitions when it comes to computers and technology.

I was having a nostalgic look at old college work and I found this, it was for a children's book about a small boy who launched his boat in his bath, sailed through stormy waters and was ship wrecked on his flannel. There was a happy ending to do with warm fluffy towels and big hugs I seem to remember.

(I couldn't resist the requisit surf board in the roof!)
Now I am going to, after all that, unstuff it and take all the stitches out and I will be left with a flat pattern exactly the size and shape I need.
I am sure there are other ways to do this but this suits the way I work. If that means I am bonkers so be it.
