    I have made several poodle/circle skirts for my grand daughters over the last few years, as their elementary schools have an anual sock hop. To make them fun we used different fabrics. Polka dots, bright colors, what I had in my stash. They have won several prizes I'm proud to say.Now that I'm done bragging.....I have the scrap fabric left from the skirts and thought it would be fun to make a sun bonnet quilt for the girls,then I thought how cute it would be if she was wearing a poodle/circle skirt. But it has been impossible to find a pattern.Does anyone know where I could find one?

    Are you looking for a sunbonnet sue pattern itself or one with a poodle skirt. You could put apoodle skirt on any pattern I think.

    I should think that would be an easy pattern to make. Just find the shape of a Sue that you like and dress her as you want.

    Oh gracious, this is gorgeous and precious and I'm jealous. NO I'm not, but sure makes my 'wannabe' status stronger!

    Blessings,

    I made two of the Fancy Sue quilts. The first one was for my grandaughter and was pastel colors. The second one was a Christmas quilt.

    Marmie.... you could use the fancy sue pattern in one color that way they will look circular and they have poodles for the Barbie doll size poodle skirts that you could put on them ... just a suggestion

    I like the fancy Sue. I have not seen that before. I would think that you could make a Sun Bonnet Sue and use the dress and applique a poodle on it. That might work!
