it's in the details!

The last couple days I've been working on the detailing of little miss Dandy! I really love watching a project come to life! Seeing something go from this...

...to this, is probably one of the funnest and enjoyable parts to being a crafter/sewer! I just love how she turned out and really came to life!! I think this is officially one of my favorite new techniques, interactive piecing!!

It is as she is really taking flight!! In case anyone is curious, for the detailing I machine stitched it using a stitch length between a 1 and 1.5 (for the more detailed areas I used a 1) so the stitches would be smaller and I'd have more control.

I'm still going back and forth with what to make, a pillow or wall hanging. The decisions are what I have the hardest time with. :)

I also received my lovely package for the Urban Home Goods Swap, from Melissa!! A cute mini that I already have hung right above my piano!! Isn't it lovely, and I don't know if anyone knows, but I really LOVE to sing, so this was perfect for me!!

I also received a set of cute matching coasters, with lovely ric rac trim!! THANKS, Melissa!!

I better get to deciding on what I'm going to make little miss Dandy into, so I can fly her home!! :)

  7. How did you make her? It looks like raw edge applique. Did you make the image bigger with a printer before you traced he? I am sorry for all the questions. I just want to learn from the best and I love your work. She is so cute!!
