This was the great sketch we got to work with (I turned it to fit the image)



I paper pieced the dress, boots, hearts and hair tie and I just love the extra touch this adds to the image.
This was a sketch that when I first saw I thought I couldn't use but when I turned it on it's side I thought I'd give it a go and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
