My latest applique project was inspired by Daughter No.3's cute picture. She drew a picture a couple of months back of the sweetest little girl (see next photo). I was wanting to preserve the picture as I just love it. Stitching it means she will have it for much longer. And it keeps me busy as well. I'm not good when I don't have a project to get on with.
Here is her drawing but I've shown you it before if it looks familiar. I want the two bigger girls to draw something as well so they can have a wall hanging and not feel left out. Goodness doing four of everything is rather trying sometimes, luckily I just love making these. Could be good little pressies too perhaps.
I started by cutting a polka dot dress out of scraps. The sleeves are puffed with a little stuffing. So cute! I really enjoyed doing the embroidery drawing of her.
I tried to get her hair to look just like her picture, but it was a little tricky. Messy hair day for her I think.
And I found a signature of hers on another drawing and copied it. Another tea towel background! It's the off cut from the applique tree. I do like to use up all my scraps. I do love to buy new tea towels too!! Any excuse for another new one.
Now I've had rather a lovely week at the post box. I will have to show you all our new goodies next time when I have some photos of them. It's so lovely to receive such nice gifts in the mail. I really must organise a few to go out too. Hope you lovelies are having a wonderful weekend. May the sun shine down on you.
