Meet Florence

Isnt she just gorgeous??!! Florence is an Annie Smith design and I made her for my Mum for Mothers Day. Mum lives in QLD, so I sent it to my brother Simon who also lives in QLD so that he will hold on to it until Sunday and give it to her for a surprise.


Her dress fabric is made using pink chenille for the bodice and Mary Engelbreit fabric for the skirt part - Mums favourite designer!!
Her face is hand painted apart from her nose which is stitched.

In her little pocket, she has a little Raggedy

I just love her shoes!! Hand painted with pink ric-rac around the edge finished off with a little green bow!! Florence is quite large - approx 86cm tall!! I have a 'body' done for myself, so when I get some 'me' time, I can decide on some fabric for mine....... but before I do, I have afew gifts on the go..............
Take care
Sarah xx
