At long last, the Beatrix Potter color sampler is finished and framed! And Katrina is still young enough to want it hung in her room, which is nothing short of a miracle. I was starting to think it was going to be her high school graduation present.

Whole sampler:

Details:


I think the framer did a great job. The narrow green border is exactly the same shade as the lighter green in the grass. The larger cream mat is the same shade as frame. They are yellow enough that they don't clash with the white fabric, and they really set the piece off well against Katrina's orchid color walls.

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail are probably my favorites. Although Mrs. Tiggywinkle is pretty cute, even from the back!

So (sew), having asked everyone to help me come up with a name for my cottage industry, I figured I had better share pictures as well.

I have Katrina's owl hat and wings completed, though I'm undecided whether to make feathery legs or not:

The wings are fleece with felt feathers, and the hat is fleece as well. The yoke velcroes in front and attached to the wrist with elastic.

Next we have Peter Pan, including some custom shoe covers that I just love, even though I made them myself.

I love the hat too.

Finally we have Tinkerbell the dog. The collar threads through the top of the costume, and the tutu sits at the waist. The tutu is green tulle and metallic green mesh on elastic, the base is fleece, and the wings are wire armature covered with the metallic mesh. It's to fit a beagle.
