Meet Pearl

When I was a young girl, I was totally into dressing up, fabulous thrifted outfits and making stuff.
Surprise, surprise!!

So when I turned 12 (my Bat-Mitzvah year), my siblings wanted to get me a special gift.
The thing I wanted more than anything in the world was a mannequin to show off the girly stuff in my room.

So, I got Pearl (so named because of her earliest accessory choices).

Here she is modelling a fabulous selection of necklaces (including my favourite pasta necklace made by Jake) and a bag I just made for my neice who is currently into wearing "olive".

And here's the other side of the bag ...

and the inside pocket ...

complete with a 'patchandi' label.

For those of you interested in how I do my labels, check out this great tutorial.

Have a stitchin' Thursday.

Hi Pearl. It's been so long since I've seen you and you haven't aged a bit! You do bring back lots of memories of long ago times. XX
