Tooth Fairy Pillow

I made this several weeks ago. I had a tooth fairy pillow when I was little and I always thought it was so exciting to put my tooth in it. It was pink with a little deer on it and lace trimmed but I created this more updated version with a design I hand screened and made the pocket out of a linen shirt I upcycled. I have another idea for one too but it will be a while before I get to it. I have a shower curtain project ahead of that on the sewing schedule!

Another Flower Pot

I just finished painting this flower pot. This is the 2nd layer as my first idea was not a winner... at all! I bought this specifically to re-pot an indoor plant from my grandmother's funeral. I really want this plant to live as she was a master gardener and could save any plant and root anything from the smallest clipping. I think after getting it done though that this pot just isn't big enough to transplant it to and it really doesn't have the look I wanted for it. I really only have one room to put the plant in and this doesn't match the style. I'll have to find another use for it!

Just finished this portrait drawing of 5 children early this week. Whenever drawing several faces on one page, it is always a little tricky because unlike paint.. you can't paint over it to start over! and you have to draw lightly at first so you can erase. After collecting various photos to work from and carefully scaling each one, this portrait finally came together.
