So I began brainstorming for design and ideas.
- blue shimmer fabric representing water -- I used the hologram sequin fabric in aqua
- fish net --- I actually used gold mesh ribbon
- the Bubble Guppies -- I ordered iron on appliques on line
It magically came together.I couldn't have been more pleased.
A four piece set including top, skirt, bloomers, hair bow.
The top - added bow and straps of fushia that matches the fushia color in the iron on appliques.
The skirt - two pleats in the front and two pleats in the back with elastic at the back waist.
The bloomers - the mesh ribbon around the elasticized leg openings to show just below the skirt.
The hair bow - not shown, but is the fushia ribbon like the bow on the waist.
So un-plannned was how the iron on appliques had the same gold color and fushia color as the ribbon colors I was already planning on using. When the applique arrived in the mail, it was a sweet surprise that all the colors coordinated.
Really really an inexpensive outfit.
1 yard of hologram sequin fabric was $4.95/yd. It only took 1/2 yard
1 roll of mesh ribbon $1 on the Christmas clearance isle that I happened to buy for my stash.
Bubble Guppies applique set ordered on line $4.95
Fushia ribbon roll $1 on the Christmas clearance isle that I happened to buy for my stash.
Add it up:
APPROX TOTAL::: $ 9.50
A think it's going to be a winner. We will see.
