It's been a while since I've been here, but I wanted to share my latest project.  It's the first time I've tried hand embroidery, so I know it's rough, but I do hope it becomes a treasure for my little girl.  I used this tutorial for the shape, but couldn't track down her awesome trimmings and other felt goodies, so I went with this design instead.

Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!

That's precious. And it looks great for being your first attempt at embroidery. Now I want to make some for my girls. Good job!

This is beautiful! I love how it has more of a fairy queen look than the typical tiara look.

I love it, too. She will be the princess at her party! I like how you did the flowers, and let me guess...her name is Emily?  Grin or maybe Elizabeth? Very nice!
