Introducing Little Miss Chloe

First adventure outside ~ here she is just testing her little legs on the moss....
Oooo are those pretty pink flowers I see over there?...

Isn't she sweet? She is made entirely out of felt from a Pattern book called Felt Friends from Japan by Naomi Tabatha. This little book is loaded with fun little patterns. I bought it for my daughter who is really into sewing these little felt guys, but I'll confess the cover was cute enough that I wanted to make my own little four-legged friend.

I added some red checked Farbenmix ribbon to offset her Aqua coloring. Who doesn't love red and aqua together? Ok some of you probably don't, ssshhhh!

And where should miss Chloe live? Perhaps she'll keep me company at the sewing table when I'm cutting out fabric...

Happy Sewing!
