It's all about Me....... blog hop

It's Thrusday the 21st sew.......
It's my turn to share with you what I have done with the fun little pattern that Amy Bradley share with us.
There have been some great projects created sew far and what imagination some of the creators have.
Sew without further ado here is my little project.

I could only fine one stripped fabric in my stash, sew I also quilted on the bias to add a little more.
I did add a couple little touches with the brass spool of thread and of course I seamed to always have a threaded needle attached to myself when working on a project, sew my lady has one too.I changed up the hair just a wee bit with my bangs and added prairie points and buttons to fame her up.

Here is the list of today's blogger's be sure to stop by and have a visit with them too.

  27. She's really cute, Annette!!! I love the threaded needle! (I have a tendency to stick mine in the knee of my blue jeans since I like to sit with my legs curled up. It's a little disconcerting to find a needle there when I've forgotten about it!)
