Dutch Doll Block

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Her cute embroided eyes - I had no more dark embroidery thread so I used usual thread, plus I lost my favorite needles so I had to use an inapropriate needle, and last but not least: the last time I emboider was... long time ago. So I wasn't very confident and finally I am happy with the result :-) What advice would you give someone starting this project? As for any paper pieced block, be careful with the fabric selection: the background has to contrast enough with all the other fabrics of the doll. And have fun!
