I stitched up this little witch and turned her into a drawstring treat bag. I wish I had stitched her skin in a different color because the color I used ended up blending with the fabric more than I'd like, especially for the face. The stars are stitched in glow-in-the-dark floss. Smiley

I found the design here. The download link doesn't work anymore though. While searching around for a link that might work, I found a kittykill blog post from 2010 that included the design.  Wink

If you are really careful with a fine point Sharpie marker, you can touch up your lighter flesh color stitches Grin
That, or another idea is to color in the insides with either the marker, or a fabric paint. I use a spray fixative before I begin these sorts of projects. It keeps the markers and paints from bleeding. Very interesting project. And it was nice of you to take the time to research for the design. I hate when the web links bomb  Roll Eyes


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

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