Finished little Dixie yesterday - a darling little RainbowBridge doggie, that was custom made for her mommy.
It all started with Hurricane Harvey-  my IG friend asked me if I'd want to help her with setting up a fundraiser and I offered to make a sculpture and drawings for prizes. We raised $500 for a senior dog shelter and the winner of the fundraiser gifted her prize to her friend, who had just lost her lil girl - love how much caring for pets and people were involved in this collective effort  <3
I was originally going to add this to the last craftster challenge about doing good, but we were a bit behind with drawing winners. So, here she is - a teensy felted Dixie girl Smiley
