This meitai was inspired by a batik by Hoffman: Tree of Life I could not just purchase the fabric and make a meitai. The meitai print is appliqued. I had fun doing this panel - there are so many ideas turning in my head now.
The entire meitai panel: Some detailed photos of the applique:
The bird: The butterfly: The matching bag I just posted is perfect for this meitai. If you fold it just right if fits right inside.
I love this pattern by that*darn*kat, it is the coming and going bag! It is a really easy bag to put together and the result is just perfect. The green fabric is actually appliqued onto the bag. The lighting is not great in these photos - but I need to send this out today.
The inside of the bag is lined with the green floral fabric.
This fabric from the two Young Street line is so much fun! The halter dress is a size 2. The back is shirred and the skirts are three layered. The first and third skirts are of the two Young Street print and the middle layer is a pink tulle. The skirt is almost a complete circle for maximum twirl factor.
