finally finished!

i've been working on this tote for a few weeks. i think i put the design on the bag maybe 3 weeks ago, and i did the stitching just in the past few days. i'm such a procrastinator sometimes. i was gonna add it to my etsy, but mika saw me making it and she was like "that's mine" and "for mika?". how could i tell her no? haha.

so that's why her hat and dress are yellow with yellow polka dots, because that's mika's favorite color. i just used back stitch and satin stitch for this bag. im really happy with how my satin stitch came out. cause those polka dots took forever to do. mika loves it. as soon as i was done, she took it around the house and put her favorite toys in it. :) i need to make her some more stuff. i haven't really lately. since she loves yellow so much, and all she wants to wear are yellow dresses, im thinking of getting some plain ones and stitchng some stuff on them for her. like alice or wall-e or eva.

it isn't much, but this was my entry for sublime stitching's tiny monogram pillow contest.
i'm sure i wasn't even close to winning, cause there were some really awesome entries. but it was a quick project and it was fun to make.

the hello kitty is lovely. I can see why mika loves it. how sweet she carried it around the house putting her toys in it.

and your little pillow rocks! I guess the m is for 'mom' or 'mika'? What are you going to do with your little pillow now? Is it too small to give to Mika to play with?

thank you! it is too small i think for now. its it an inch across the top and bottom. i am thinking of making her some bigger ones for her dolls to use. :)
