    Cute, cute, cute. Practice drawing some faces on paper first. Usually I go for one thing, but wind up with another. ;-)

    Lovely! I agree with Dunster.....I am hopeless with faces, mine always look a bit demented.

    it was in miniature quilts magazine back in say...1999/2000! But I think they also published it in one of the book publications on Miniatures as well. Would have been that same time period. THey closed up in 2003 I believe so it would be prior to that!

    I love this too! If the magazine is out of business, can you share the pattern with us?

    no, the magazine is no longer printed, but the publishing company is still active and owns the copyright!

    So cute.....I use tiny black beads and leave the rest of the face (nose and mouth) to someone's imagination. It works for me!

    Just so cute. Practice drawing on paper first. Maybe just dots for features to start with?
