Q&A with Oleo

kikilou asked:
could you please thell me what are molas? i have dog picture i want to do, did you just use the outline of picture ?
Oleo answered:
Here is a link to some photos of molas, They are elaborate reverse applique panels that are turned into blouses that the women in SanBlas Islands of Panama wear. I went there on a tour to learn how to do this and meet some of the women who do this work http://www.panart.com/mola_gallery.htm

It's adorable, simple but effective. I will try to portrait my bichon, wish me luck!
Oleo answered:
Good luck!
MarleneC asked:
If there are instructions I sure can't find them. I've clicked on the picture and on Sparky and Oleo and nothing helpful.
Oleo answered:
I didn't post instructions because I made it up as I went along. If you google "reverse applique" you should find some ideas.
