Moo moo #43 Double Rainbow
I love the internet. Inspiration abounds. This week's moo stems from the Double Rainbow video that swept the world last month. If you haven't seen it, you need to.
Find it here.
Okay, wondering how you ever lived without it yet?
Next I feel compelled to direct you to an interpretation of how Neil Young may have been inspired into song by the Double Rainbow, performed by my celebrity crush, Jimmy Fallon. Dang he's good! It's from NBC, so there's a short advertisement first, but I promise it's worth the wait.
This Moo is my contribution to the double rainbow phenomenon.
I constructed it out of a basic rectangle (still adhering to the basic Moo pattern from the beginning of the Moo Moo 100 project). The skirt bottom was cut on the fold, then I cut a large opening out of the middle of it, for, you know, leg room.
The rainbows are composed of excess bits of fabric I have from various other projects and I included and small pocket of green gingham sporting the famed words, "all the way". Huh? Just watch the video again.
The green fabric of the moo is found fabric. Being as such it has a few marks ... looks as though it had been washed with something indigo ... dark wash blue jeans maybe? It's left a few marks (mainly on the shoulder sections) that look like ink blots. Rorschach anyone? I love these kinds of surprises in found fabrics and feel it's an integral part of the garment and how I feel about sustainability. It's not flawed, it's unique.
You can find it for sale on Etsy here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/55588612/moo-moo-43-double-rainbow
