    Hi all, I wanted to share a couple of photos of some fun I had modifying a pattern from Little Things to Sew, in order to make headpieces for my daughter’s ballet company production of Sleeping Beauty last weekend. These headpieces were for the White Cat and Puss in Boots. I used the hood pattern for both, modifying as needed. A cat mask pattern from Oxeyedaisey on Etsy was also used for Puss in Boots, and attached to the hood. Both were a great success in the show! Thanks to Liesl for her wonderful talent and beautiful patterns.

    Oh, how beautiful! And how fun that they were used for that particular piece, which is a favorite of mine. I love the graceful cat-like motions. Thanks for sharing!

    Photo credit to the incredible Mr. Richard Calmes! My fault for leaving this off the original post. Very grateful for his photos.

    Sorry, bit off topic. I can’t help from asking this because of my curiosity. How did you get that contract? Even I have plans to do fabric designing business but not sure where to begin. When I googled I got an idea about the marketing strategy (http://www.grassrootsadvertising.com/blog/offline-marketing/creative-strategies-for-offline-marketing/) but no idea how to implement that. How do you get the contract from the production companies?

    Hi Beverly, I wish I could help you with some business ideas, but my sewing for the ballet was done on a volunteer basis! No contract or anything like that…just an email from our ballet mistress saying, could you make these for us, please? 🙂 Fortunately, I had Liesl’s amazing book at my disposal, which made it easier. Maybe you could take a marketing class, perhaps a local adult-education program or design school, to learn some strategies? Good luck with your business!
