Bon jour!Yes, I finished a project!  

She was such a delight to put together--all by hand.  Felt has to be one of the most forgiving crafting mediums to work with and the results so rewarding. Which is not to say that I didn't have a few oops moments, but I learned a lot on my first attempt and think the next one will go even smoother.  I made a small change to the dress by embellishing it with three delicate Mokuba ribbon rosettes I picked up from Nan's shop, très magnifique!

I think Charlotte's almost as cute from behind, and her tail acts as a convenient tripod, allowing her to self-stand.

Cynthia has added some very cute details to the dress, like the felt button that holds Charlotte's dress together below her tail. And yes, those handmade buttons are working buttons!

Got any Paris recommendations for Carla--places to eat, shop, visit?

Au revoir!
