About this design:

I was looking at the” fun with felt section” on LB and just thought I’d have some fun. I have to work on lips and no that’s not hair on her chin, it’s her neck (hahaha with a little hair)- just wait you young ladies- what you lose in youth comes back in hair(in unwanted places) 😂. She’s wearing a lovely necklace and gaudy earrings to match. And yes she went out of her lip line with the lipstick. Anyhoo, I will flaunt her as a broach on my fall jacket!

    Beady , no she doesn’t look like me- But I remember when I was a new nurse – my first job was in a nursing home and one of the ladies I took care of always had her purse, jewelry and lipstick on. She often missed her lips and I just grew to love her land smile when I saw her. Plus I don’t know how to cut out little lips hahaha! These were just fun time while in quarenteen.

    What patience to sew these cute pieces with such tiny pieces of felt. Those tiny flowers are adorable with the tiny seeds in the middle. You’ve created a nice depth by stitching the ‘floss’ over the hair felt–love the curls above her cheeks. It’s nice that everyone can share their creative endeavors here at Lima.

    Both are cute! Which one is you? I keep tweezers in each car and my purse and bathrooms just for those “whiskers” that seem to pop up out of nowhere!!! :D

    MM- I get the tweezer thing(too funny). If I had to choose which one is me, I’d say the one with the big mouth and hair on her chin-hahaha.
