A Feathered Fatima!

Here she is! LOL!
First, I finished the back with some of the gold lame--she needs the glitz, don't ya know?--over some of the craft foam. I centered a piece of gold cording for the hanger and tucked in to the inside. Next, I got out the old Singer and sewed around all the sides, leaving the bottom open. I then turned it inside out and stitched the bottom shut. This apparently was the easy part! Sewing fluffy feathers on the sides was total fun--little fluffs of pink feathers float in the air, while I stab myself with a very sharp needle! But, we think she is beautiful and I know she is going to be welcomed in her new home.

As Jane says, thank goodness there wasn't glue and glitter involved!

LOL indeed - no wonder you were sneezing. She definitely has character, personality, and is quite sassy - I'm glad you gave her some eyelashes!! I'm with Jane - TG for no glue and glitter. maybe some little earrings? I'm sure she will be well received and treasured. Another heirloom has been created.

She's a knockout! LOL

What a hoot. You must have been laughing all the time you were attaching the puffy little feathers around the edges. No wonder you were sneezing.

Jane, laughing herself in CH
