I sent her to the fabric store to purchase the fabric and this is what I came up with.
I just love the big, juicy flower on this one.
And this one is obviously for a boy who loves "Pirates of the Caribbean" so I decided to go with the cross bones...because making a template for a skull sounded a little too difficult. Of course, I wish I could have cut the pirates to lie in the correct position, left to right, but using exactly 1/2 a yard of fabric only allows for the pattern to be cut one way so that the pieces all fit. That's why I prefer those all-over designs, there's no right-way or wrong-way.
