Music Blog Hop

Sign up for November

Hurray!  It's my day to share with you my project for the Music Blog Hop.  When Carla, of Creatin' in the Sticks, announced that she was going to host a musical-themed blog, I jumped at the chance to be included.  What a fun idea!

In my stash I had a yard of Alexander Henry fabric called Going Steady.  Its several years old, but I never found the right project to use it until now.

In the book Kiddie Cocktails by Stuart Sandler, was an illustration by Derek Yaniger, one of favorite artists.  I decided to make a wall hanging using his picture as my inspiration.

First I made a background of pastel colors reminiscent of the 50's,  

Next I drew and cut out my teenager shapes.

I used fusible web to adhere most of my pieces to my pastel background.  I found a poodle applique that was so popular during that era.  And the shoes were so much fun to make -- penny loafers, Oxfords, and sneakers.  

Remember the old 45's?  I had quite a collection and a portable record player on which to play them.  


I used the Going Steady fabric for the backing for this wall hanging.  I think it goes well with the subject.  


This has been such a fun hop.  Thank you again, Carla, for hosting this wonderful hop.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my contribution.  Now boogie on over to the other bloggers' sites and see what they have made.
