sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows

I'm now in official "freak out because I need a bunch of stuff for the craft show" mode. But before I embark on my daily freak out, here's a sneak peak at one of the designs that will undoubtedly be making an appearance at the show.
When this burgundy and rainbow striped fabric came into the fabric store recently I knew it had to be in the line. I didn't know what I would make with it, but it HAD to come home with me.
I love rainbows. As a 5 year old I named everything (including myself) Rainbow. I have a deep child-of-the-80's love for the rainbow in all it's forms.
I'm also spending a chunk of my time these days studying for my motorcycle license (!) so that I can get a Vespa and scoot around town like a hep young thing circa 1964. So here is my nod to mod skirt lengths (18" below the waist. Not the scant 13" I wore back in college, but SO much more flattering) and colorblocking mixed with a healthy dose of Rainbow Brite.
