I created this design at the height of the Pussy Riot affair in Russia, as a pastiche referencing images that use 'girls' as a lure, and various silhouettes that I balaclavaed and subverted (see if you can spot the knitter) to try and turn them, together with strong colors, into an image of strong women. 'Deep hot pink (d8279c)' is a coordinating solid. An alternative colorway is 'From Moscow in mulberry and balaclavas' - with the mulberry and strawberry colors giving it a quite different feel.
My thanks to everyone who commented that it works as a celebratory image of the strength of women, and to Sue Ellen for the suggestion to enter it in the Girl Power Contest as a potentially interesting fabric for older girls' clothing.
It printed beautifully as a fabric (I have yardage on poplin that I'm looking forward to sewing and wearing). And I'm delighted that it's being used as one of the pieces in a 'Feminist Quilt'.
Ink pen & stencils, designed as a half-drop, basic repeat.
