Bravo for tackling this folk story! Robin McKinley wrote an incredible version of it entitled Deerskin.

Thank you! I never thought about using it as a patchwork panel. It would be fun to make a fairy/folk tale quilt :D
This is a interesting way to utilise elements from an obscure fairy tale in a versatile design. As well as being made up into dolls, the fabric is suitable to be used for applique or as a feature panel for patchwork.
I've found a site that shows similar stories to Donkey Skin: http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/donkeyskin/other.html#LOU

I haven't heard of that variant, but I'm sure there are dozens. The first version that I heard was "Catskin", but I absolutely fell in love with Arthur Rackham's depiction of her. So I went to Donkey Skin where I could do my own work without outside influence.
I love the color of the sky dress :)
nice! I've also heard this story as "Cap of Thrushes"
