Mixed Media Monday - Stitches

I chose "stitches" as the theme for this week's challenge on Mixed Media Monday because I wanted to do something different, since it's my third time in a row as host. I like to mix it up a bit :-) This little "Stuffy" is about 8 inches tall (20 cms) and is made entirely from fabric, apart from her beaded necklace, the button in her flower and the metal butterfly pin that she is holding. Her face is drawn and coloured with Sharpie pens and her blush was done with a pastel pencil.
