Kate @ Lilipopo is hosting a sew along project where she offers 6 patterns of the dancing princess series with the idea that they are each made up in two different ways so you end up with twelve princesses.
I really enjoyed making my princess -- I decided to give the applique method as shown on Kate's blog a try.
I also used a plastic spoon technique found in Japanese Quilt books when I filled in the shoes. It helped picking up the needle really easy.
I used "Doodle Stitching" book as my helper. I think it is a good book for beginners with lots of project ideas and overall stitching techniques. You can read the reviews from Amazon. :)
Here are some projects in this book:
On another note, My Patchwork Tote bag has been featured on Threading My Way. Thank you very much Pam! :) I am truely honored.
