This toy is lucky number 13 for the toy drive.
This is Francisca, dressed as a butterfly. She is one of Owlishly's creations, the same lady who made the Sleeping Sarah pattern. The pattern was ROAKed (that's a Random Act of Kindness for anyone not in the know) to me last November and figured the toy drive was a good reason to give her a try.
The detailing on the wings made me feel like when I was a little kid in art class. You look at the teacher's example and try to make it that pretty, but the skill just isn't there. Embroidery is going to have to be my next crafty lesson, lol. Hopefully whatever little kid get Francisca won't wonder about the lack of symmetry in the detailing.
She's a hodgepodge of yarn...black is Caron Pounder, blue and white is RHSS, the brown and tan are unknown. The tan is a ww and the brown seems to be a DK or sport. Those are both over 15 years old with no bands. I wish I knew what the tan was, as its almost finished. Its the perfect shade for skin and I've yet to see anything that even remotely matches it now.
And just a random thought...before adding the wings and the antennae, she looked like a burglar to me. Just one more sign I've lived in this neighborhood too long, haha!
