    She wasn't difficult. However, these are what I learned:
    1. a fat quarter of fleshtone is plenty but it will take most of it. I only used one shade ~ not 2.
    2. The necklace on mine wasn't attractive, so I re-did it and used my own beads and iron on crystals.
    3. I changed mine. I realized that she had missing and blacked out teeth (think hillbilly?). Not for me. I wanted someone cute!

    Enjoy. Her name is Whackzinka!

    Too cute. I love what you have done with her. I got mine yesterday, and she looks like something from a Frankenstein movie(LOL). When I get around to making her, I will definitely have to adjust the pattern alittle. It is definitely a fun site and kudos to paperpanache for coming up with this.

    I like knowing that our fairy quilt godmothers take care of themselves.
    Whoever heard of a haggard fairy godmother?

    Wow, that looks like a lot of hard work. But sure has some personality. :)
