I'm not doing a Super Stitches Post today. I have a birthday party to go to, full of 6-year old girls and Hello Kitty stuff. And cake.
Yesterday I made the birthday girl, Sophia, a little present. I finished it up this morning and can't wait to give it to her :D
flora and fairies. It came out so cute; I love it!
I used lots of different odds and ends. I'm glad I decided not to throw away my tiny scraps that were too small for even hexipuffs! They were perfect for her hair, body and shoes.
The skirt, limbs, and flower were all made with a bamboo-cotton blend by Queensland. I found this yarn at Tuesday Morning and bought it with no real intention and it is nice and soft for the flower. I did, however, have to iron it to keep the petals nice and straight.
I don't think I'll be making another one any time soon, though. There was an awful lot of sewing up, and it was all done with small needles, and oh my gosh all that hair! Not to mention I had to embroider the face on, which is not exactly my strongest suit.
