I made this as a thank you for my step brother for letting us use his beach house! I think I am going to turn it into a pillow in a few weeks.  I wanted to get the stitching all done so I could start on so swap crafts! Here's pics of the girls.  I think this turned out so cute I just love it! I almost want to keep it!  I wish I would have made this skin out lining a darker shade.  I don't know if it pop's enough.  I am still new at this so I welcome all comments and criticism!

the thread does seems a little light against your fabric ... have you thought of crayon tinting the body parts? they might pop a bit more that way. I must say, your stitching is beautiful, very neat and even looking. What a great sister you are!

Thanks I love stitching.  Its so relaxing. I've never ventured into the crayon tinting.  Can I do it after I've already stitched? I thought you had to do it before you stitched?  I've considered it but just haven't tried it yet.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Your stitching is so wonderful. You can tint after you stitched, but it's a little bit harder to get into all the lines-you could use colored pencils.
