Flora the Explorer

Hello friends!  Sometimes, at the oddest moments, I'll get an idea in my head for a new design and I just have to get my notepad out and figure out the pattern for it.  Well, a couple of days ago, I had one of those moments and with out delay, I sat down to start working on a new little kitty.  I know it's cheesy, and I couldn't resist, but please meet Flora the Explorer!!  Isn't she sweet?

As usual, I've used hand woven felt to make her body, shoes and suitcase, and a pretty floral cotton print for her dress.  She's a quite a bit bigger than most of my animals and measures just over 6 inches tall.  Her dress and shoes are removable and I've made embroidered 'travel stickers' which I've appliqued onto her case.  I just love this little girl and I hope you do too!  Her pattern is now available in my shop.

Flora is easy to make and would be the perfect companion to take along on a nice long journey - after all, she loves adventures!!

Have a wonderful week:)
