Nightingale...Done!

Any time I can claim a completed project, I am thrilled!  It doesn't happen all that often.  Usually the things I am making...take months.  Even Nightingale has taken about a month.  I don't like to rush myself.  I like to take my time and really enjoy the process.

But, I sure am happy when something is done.

May I present....

Nightingale

I have two iris in bloom...figured I better show them off cause they're so pretty...but only for about a day.

I've given her a gi belt.  Girl's for real!

Don't you just want to squish her face?  Loving her eyelashes and coy little smile.

Sassy little flip-flops!

And her patchwork shell...alright, granted the shell is a little wonky, but it was hard to keep it straight.  I still like it.

Here's how I made the shell...I just sewed together a little patchwork square, cut it into an oval and then I sewed a gathering stitch around the edge.  Pulled in the gathers, stuffed it with fluff and....there you go.  A sort of shell shape.  Then I simply used needle and thread and stitched it on her back.

Don't mess with this ninja.  She'll take you down like she did this flower...the flower had it coming.  Hi-Yaaah!!

Mmm hmmmmm...she's a toughie. 

Thanks for reading!

  3. Heather that is one cute ninja! Nice job! Did I ever tell you that my friend Judy's grandaughter's name is Nightingale? Also...when I was little, I thought iris's looked so pretty and smelled so good that they had to taste good. I ate the all the time!! They didn't taste that good..but I kept thinking they should!!

  5. Nightingale is so sweet. Every single detail is so adorable! Honestly, I think she would make a great character for book...you should write one! Not. Even. Kidding. Maybe you and your girls could write one together ;) I can just imagine all of the adventures this little ninja could go on....
