Being Cute is What I do - MFTWSC32

I promised Karen I would attempt sewing again and today's MFTWSC32 was a great layout to try it on, or "sew" I thought! :)  It started out really well.  The outer edge was pretty good but when I sewed the pink dotted panel on I think there were too many layers and the tension went crazy.  These were my last bits of Imaginisce Fairest of Them All, Magic Meadow pattern paper so I just kept on sewing!

I stamped Being Cute is What I Do in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with copics.

I just LOVE her little outfit and can't resist paper piecing it!  The solid cardstock is SU Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue which I ran through the BigShot with the SU Perfect Polkadots embossing folder.  I used the MFT Simply Scallops die for the border and the MFT Pretty Posies for the flower.  I added a little button in the center of the flower and tied a pink twine bow.  I was trying to follow the sketch but realized my little PI girl was too big on the piece of paper I had stamped her on, so just cut around her and mounted her on top - I like this look!
