Demented Ramblings life is too short to refrain from eating jam out of the jar

Whatever happened with all that pink fabric?

Obviously, I couldn't just post a picture of it last week, I wanted to keep it under wraps until the birthday girl had seen it.  And usually it's my rule that the recipient must see the gift before the intarwebs at large.  Tho' sometimes, if you see me in real life, I'll show you a sneak preview pic on my phone.  I had trouble keeping quiet about this one, I was so proud of the results.

I will have to give a thank you shout out to my friend Homes, who not only pushed me away from a skull necklace and toward pearls (much more Mimi) he also recommended a tutu.

Without further hubbub, I give you - Miss Penelope Jean, the pink hippo or pippo.

Here she is, on the guest bed, chilling with Lenore, giving you a good view of her sparkly pink eyes and the huge fluff that is her tutu.  I love how one ear lies down and one stands up, she demanded to be that way no matter how much I argued that her ears should both do the same thing.  It gives her pizazz.

Showing off her pearls.

And with her new person, I believe they will be a good match.  Mimi seems quite happy.

Usually, I don't name my creations, I allow the recipient to do that.  But Penelope whispered her name to me while I was sewing her together.  But maybe she'll whisper a different name to Mimi and her name will change.

Except for the buttons that I used for her eyes and nostrils, and a little bit of fleece for the tail, everything that went into this project came from my craft stash.  Some of this fabric I'd been hoarding for years waiting for just the right project to come along.  It did.
