Cute mini HD!

I finished the birthday gift for my friend's daughter. This is the blue ballerina from DMC, but the little girl said she likes purple and pink, so i converted her tutu (correct?) to purple, i used beads in place of french knots, which i know will come out horribly!!. Also converted her hair to match hers, she is a Fil-Am (Filipino-American). Fabric is dyed by me, and the frame is glorious! I went to Michael's with hubby and my son last night and found this frame for $6.99! I came home with 2!!! Not only was it cheap, it was also deep enough to accomodate the mounted piece, since most ready-made frames are only capable of fitting a picture, this one was just perfect! I did not even have to go through the whole 'discard backing and replace it with kraft paper, and then dragging out hubby's hammer and nail a hanger for it'. It was a piece of cake!

I have been stitching again on OUAT, will post updates later since there isn't very much to see, I have decided to convert the fairy's dress this time to white, so I have been frogging what was already there, and i had to order the materials needed for my conversion. I'm hoping it will look awesome once done.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting! Have a lovely day!

Thanks again for the tip about how to make the pictures clickable. Many readers didn't know that either :-D

That is really cute! She will love it! I am so jealous that you are able to dye your own fabrics and it come out looking so good! I'm sure mine would be a terrible mess!
