For the last few weeks I have been working on this little Frida Kahlo softie/cushion as a Birthday gift for my sister. The idea came to me watching a short film on Frida recently. I loved her unique style, passion for her Mexican heritage and her colourful self portraits. So after spying this gorgeous fabric on one of my recent shops
I got to sketching and practicing my pattern making skills. Using a template of a babushka doll that I had made recently,
Raiding my fabric stash I found these cotton napkins that I got to use for Frida's face.
A little poncho with pom poms made me smile.......arribaaaaa!!
Hand stitching felt flowers for her hair piece....
