Ever since I was little I have always enjoyed reading about the French Revolution and Marie Antoinette. There was something fascinating about this rich queen with ornate dresses, expensive parties, and a mountain of hair that forced her to sleep on a wooden block to keep it nice.
So when I stumbled across this little doll in the Wee Wonderful book (which also contains the Vera worm pattern), I was drawn to it. And I knew it would be the perfect birthday gift for a good friend.
Light pastels just seemed perfect for this little Marie Antoinette-esque doll. I chose gold thread for the french knots on her skirt and hair, then added the ribbon and beads for some outward detail.
I haven't done much embroidery in the last couple years, so I really enjoyed this different take on my crafting time. And it was fun to do a feminine, soft, and girly project!
