I’ve continued the work on the details of Anna’s outfit and I’ve made lots of progress 🙂
I showed the embroidery on her vest last time and I’ve just finished all the decoration on her blue skirt. I used fabric paint as I thought I would after going back to the store for some better colour options. I mixed a couple of different blues for the floral motifs and of course the magenta bloom according to the drawings. Painting so small was a bit finicky and one has to be in the right frame of mind to do this. Brushes were too big for this so I wound up using a pin, lol!
Speaking of pins, I used a pin board (for quilting) covered with a layer of plastic for protection to secure the skirt and keep it taut and still while I painted. Seemed to work ok 🙂
No paint, just pinned and ready to go ……
Scalloped edge first. This took a number of coats.
Then some of the florals…..
And some more florals….
Last, the magenta stylized blooms….
I continued sewing up her collared, two layer cape. Some I did with the machine and the rest I did by hand. It will need the pretty edging, but I finished the front clasp. I’ve used sterling silver plated copper wire and hand turned it to the right shape before sewing it to the cape. I’ve added some silver beads to finish the look. There is a hook and corresponding loop hidden under the decorative wire clasp so that it can be fastened closed.
The last big thing for Anna will be her boots. I’ve made careful note of the designs on the fronts of them, and that’s what I’ll be working on next. Then fasteners on the skirt, vest, Elsa’s dress and finally attaching Elsa’s snowflake cape and this project will be complete!
Thanks so much for reading!
