Great job. Tell me where you listed all the materials you can use for hair. Thanks, classmates. Ginny

I just used two fabrics, one sort of mottled charcoal gray from Stonehenge and the other had black, gray and white swirls that I fussy cut to look like gray streaks.

How did you attach the eyeglass frames? They're a wonderful element to this portrait and I couldn't begin to say enough about the hair ~ it's fabulous!!!

Thanks. I adjusted the shape of the face to match my actual face using the picture method Carol Ann suggested. I had to bend the glasses a bit to make them flatter . After I finished quilting the whole thing, I punched small holes for the sides of the glasses to go through and sewed the glasses in place from the back using the screw holes (where the earpieces had been attached).
