Quicky for me!

Once I laid my eyes on the stylish lady adorning a pillow given to Amber over at A Little Bit Biased ,I had to make her. I Had to copy her and make one for myself. So I did. I love the tweedy texture on the wing-back chair, it was so much fun to stitch.
I printed the image and traced it onto white fabric and then I embroidered it in colors similar to Amber's pillow.
I didn't have a printed fabric that would complement the little lady and her pup but I soon found this wonderful Japanese fabric at this ETSY shop and I received it in just a few days. I think I have a tiny bit of turquoise gingham I can add to the mix.
Now comes the hard part...I always have trouble at this point in my projects. Should I add green ric-rac?
Should I pull out more of the Turquoise by adding these solids?
Maybe I should add pink? I am not sure but I do know that this will become a tote bag for me.
Notice how I made the pup look like Rugby? She is sitting at my feet right now. ;0)

How cute! You'll have to send Amber a picture of your finally product! I like the green ric-rac touch and some of the pink...but maybe I am partial to those colors...

Fun project! Now, I feel like spending the raining day sewing!

The pattern with he lady is very cute. If you must add something it should be the turqoise color that matches the turquise stripes.

Oh that is so cute! And I LOVE your floral fabric you got to go with it! Just perfect! My sister-in-law Brittany made the pillow for me, so I can't take any credit, but thanks for sharing it with me. It's adorable!

P.S. Love your mushroom/bug project in the post below too!

Oh look at all the lovely things you've made recently! I like her, she reminds me a bit of Holly Hobby, do you remember those dolls? I'll bet you do.

I'm going to vote green, I think. The reason being that it would add a nice contrast. I'm always in favor of more colors, vs. fewer :-)

It's good to see your screenname, Jennifer. I see you've spending some quality time under snow, creating as you go.
