Fire Fairy

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am happy with how it turned out - almost identical to the photo in the book with my own interpretaion. I wasn't sure if I was going to cut out a fire border and use rat tail binding - but I decided to keep it square and add a very tiny black border - I built the light of the flame into it. It still needs to be stitched around the border and I will be adding crystals to the dress and belt. I also painted the background with paints before coloring with the pencils. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow your Inspiration and make it your own.
