    VIP is coming out with a new group of (licensed) Barbie fabrics. What do you think of these? Thumbs up, or thumbs down? (There are five fabrics in this collection.)

    The only one I really like is the third one (Barbie in frames). Not crazy about the pink and black. :thumbdown:

    I absolutely LOVE the shoes print (fourth, I believe), it's so perfectly vintage Barbie. Otherwise... not so much.

    I like them all. Have to save a little money (or a lot) because my 44 yr old dau will have to see this. She had lots of Barbie's & I made the whole wedding dress/tuxedo, plus lots of other patterns. She had a suitcase full before it was over with. I think she still had them until someone knocked the lock off the storage unit they were renting & stole lots of her things, including her Class Ring.

    I like black pink white but dont care for the ones with actual barbie on it sorry. I would hate to have to work with that fabric for any length of time at all.

    The only one I would see myself using is the second one - the pink with the tiny shoes, purses, etc. This is probably weird, but these fabrics look more like gift wrap than fabric to me. (But then, I'm an old lady.)

    They are all cute but the Barbie in frame is more BARBIE then the others.

    The first one - pillow covers, the second one - a tote bag, the third on - valance for window, fourth and fifth ones use in a quilt. I'd add some of the second on to the quilt for borders and maybe binding. ALL for someone who is into Barbie dolls or a collector of Barbie dolls. I have my Barbie dolls from 1964 but am not a collector, nor do I like pink that much so that leaves me out.

    I've seen a lot cuter Barbie prints. They don't really "speak" Barbie to me, except the one with the actual Barbie on it.

    I think they are adorable. I could see a little girl that is in to barbie being thrilled with a quilt made of those.

    I'm with them. It just doesn't say "Barbie" to me. Maybe it is geared more toward adult Barbie fans and I was expecting little girl stuff.

    I like them all. I have 7 granddaughters, and I could see lots of quilted gifts made with them. Are they in the stores yet?

    I like the pink with the tiny shoes and the one with the poodles. The others not so much.

    I think this is a very sophisticated looking Barbie...not something that is appealing to me for little girls :D:D:D

    Now I feel old :-(
    None of these look like Barbie as I remember, except the word "Barbie".

    I like the third pic the best too. But when you put together a quilt, I can see pieces of blocks in the other fabrics. Try using it in a pattern with other materials. Pink and black are colrs from the 50's.
