I recently stitched and finished one of our new needlepoint designs, “Happy Doll“. I still smile every time I look at it.
I bought her an actual barrette from the hair accessory store and pinned it into her hair. Also, I sewed buttons on for her jumper. The white hem is done in Turkey Stitch and came out adorable.
I got the idea for this design from my first grader’s homework assignment (she was learning the letter D). There was a similar drawing in her workbook. My daughter is now convinced that this piece is for her room. I had to gently break the news that I’m shipping it to one of our retailers to hang in the shop. Are you a needlepoint store? Carry our stuff and make some little girls happy.
