I stitched this up for a friend's birthday. I tinted it and then added the rhinestones to her hair.



I hope she likes it!

Thanks! I tinted her hair with crayons after I ironed the pattern on but before I stitched. The rhinestones were added after with fabric glue.

Thanks everyone! I really love this pattern. I think the next one I do will the ocean/beach colors.

I don't have the patience (at this point  Cheesy ) to do beautiful stitch work like this and I really admire it!!  This is a very fun piece and I bet she loved it.  Grin
