Musical Fairy

fairy

Im excited to share with you a new adventure I will be trying.  I have finally opened an Esty shop.   My first item is this Fairy that my daughter created.  I   took this sweet Fairy and transferred her onto some cotton muslin and embroidered her.   Here are some pictures of how she turned out.

I really love the Klutz book on beginning embroidery for children it is such a great book for anyone,  wanting to learn how to do hand embroidery.  One of the things I love about it is it shows the author’s work.  Through out the book it is illustrated with pictures that have been embroidered.  So cute and when I first saw the book it reminded me of my daughter’s drawings.  So I had originally gotten it for her.  : ) 

I have another Music Fairy in the works that Im hoping to get posted soon.  But it has been interesting to see how each one takes on their own look.  It has been a fun experience to share with my daughter.
