My niece's present....

I just have to share this with you because I was happy with how it came out and I know at 5-years old she isn't on Blogger....yet. Oh to be 5 again! I think I might even make a set for  myself.

I bought the pattern from LuckyNielson on etsy and used what felt I had. I had purchased the little wooden peg dolls/game pieces from Michael's to use with a pattern I saw on Wee Folk Art, but decided on the Forest Friends instead. I guess I purchased the boy wood turnings as they do make them with a flared body/dress for a girl.

A painter I am not, but I tried. Hopefully my niece won't look too closely.

I also decided to hand stitch everything together because I am not that great on the sewing machine and it would take me longer to figure it out than to just go ahead and hand stitch. This gave a little extra detail to the flower teepee, but made the hats flare out a bit in the back. We'll just call that dimension. : ) I used pinking shears on the leaf as well for added detail.
