July Craft Challenge - Nature

This is my submission for July for Adele's  '12 Month Craft the World Challenge'. The theme for this month is 'nature'.  I've chosen a certified organic cotton* to make this wrap around dress.  The print is called "Garden Poppy Scrolls", designed for Mod Green Pod by Nancy Mims and is part of the "Free To Grow" collection.  In my mind it looks like a field of wildflowers, so to this backdrop I have appliqued some trees, using other organic cottons,  then added some happy dogs frolicking in the flowers and put some singing birds in the trees.

Here is the back view:

This is the detail of the applique on the front of the dress. Shows the detail of the fabric print as well.

You can see what others have come up with using the theme of nature in the month of July by following the links over on the page Adele has on her website (here)
