…..and an arm for that matter!!
Today, I had a few hours in the studio and was able to get the other arm, hand and henna tattoo on my girl…….
I had mentioned in the last post that I was uncertain whether I was going to use real beads or applique them in fabric and several people told me that I should use real beads. So, today I pulled out a box of beads and found this beaded trim that I had bought somewhere…..
I clipped off a few of these bead sets and strung them together to give myself a idea of what it might look like……
Right now I am thinking that this is the way I will go, but I am not completely sold on it. Part of me thinks that they need to be a bit bigger…..we will see!!
Unfortunately, I may not have a lot of time over the next week to work on her, but am looking forward to the next steps. The things that I still have to decide are….
- What color to make her pants and socks
- What background do I want to use (I am leaning toward the vegies that were around her)
- How big do I want it to be (I hope to enter it in some shows and want to make sure that it meets the minimum size).
- And the real biggie…..how am I going to quilt it!!!!
