Finishing touches.



Okay, so I know I said it was finished, but I've found some olive-coloured fabric and yarn that I will probably try making into my dream poncho/cape thingy.

For the time being, I'll make up a couple of these little outfits and put them in my Etsy store.  It takes so long to design new stuff, and my shop hasn't had any new additions for too long.

Today, I needed to make the tunic in the colour I originally wanted, so I cut into my pretty new violet fabric and got stitching.




















The different coloured tunic gives the outfit a totally different feel. I'll use the stone coloured tunic in a different outfit.































I made some more little crochet flowers and attached them to the hat, with some bead centres, and now the outfit really is complete.

...Unless I work out how to make a damn fine poncho... =^-^=

    1. It's kind of based on what fabric I had - which reminded me of Dartmoor, with its moorland greens and violet sunsets :)
