    She is cute, once you do the sewing around..it may take away from the one hand being a bit off. Are you going to use a blanket stitch?

    Or you could sew in a flower being held in her hand and it's stem to cover the gap :)

    Very nice start! You can use a blanket stitch or zigzag, or even use a straight stitch for raw edge applique. I'd put something in her hand to hide that little gap.
