Brown-Eyed Sue

Hello, Friends, and happy Monday to you!

Today I’m switching gears from my normal papercrafts, to sharing one of my latest little fabric creations. I know it’s still July, but the last couple of weeks has found me knee deep in fall and Halloween production mode. Before we know it, back to school time will be here, and the change of season, too. And it’s always good to be prepared.

I’ve been thinking about my upcoming Fall Shop. This year I am super excited to not only share my prims with you here in my own shop, but to also have them featured in the adorable Rusty Bucket store in charming downtown Apex, NC. So I’ve been a busy bee, trying to get ready.

Of course it’s still too soon for ghosties and spooks. So when the girls and I got together this past week for craft day, I turned my thoughts back to summer with this little cutie pie flower girl. This is Brown-Eyed Sue. The perfect flower for the late summer garden.

She has flower petals for hair, and a green dress for stem and leaves. I made her a little corsage, too, using dies from my sweet friend, Tammy Tutterow, and some of my own hand-dyed fabrics. So silly! She just makes me smile.

Now I’ve got other ideas for flower girls in my head! And the pieces are cut out on my work table already. I’m hoping to finish this week, and perhaps list some new flower girls in my Shop, too.

One last fling before the spooks begin!

    re: the lime green cake I baked for Lione is called Pandan coconut cake, Pandan is a southeast Asian plant, in English is called Screwpine. It is very fragrance and you can see in most Southeast Asian cooking, places like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

  3. Oh, my! Just LOVE the flower petals for her hair…so creative, Audrey! Love her dress and corsage, too! Your brown-eyed Sue is so adorable! Big congrats on having your awesome creations at Rusty Bucket…how exciting for you!
