This way cool.. I was thinking maybe you take the kids drawing and design fabric from it would be way cool also.  Oh I had just watch Project Runaway the one where they design their fabric.

I finally got around to doing this!  My daughter likes it.  Actually, I had forgotten all about it, but then I noticed that she had started drawing dresses, which reminded me of it.  Here is a blog post where you can see photos:

Claudine,

What an adorable dress you have collaborated on with DD. I love her drawing and the final version.

Claudine - what a neat concept.  I'd not read this thread before today.  The dress for DD looks great.  I'll bet she's thrilled.

 Your daughter's design, brought to life by your skills, resulted in a beautiful dress, Claudine!
