Princess Block: #4 Complete

Here is another Princess Block that I've completed!
I started by adding a piece of pink tulle to the princesses hat and a teddy bear button in her hand Then I started adding jewel butterflies and sequin butterflies are fluttering around the block.
I added a rainbow braid to the right corner and above it added Rebekah's name using running stitch in pink and whipped it in purple, then added yellow and green buttons.
There is also some pre-made silk ribbon flowers that I attached above the princess.
The bouquet is made of of different ways to make flowers like using lace gathered together and a blue tulle gathered, an organza yo yo flower and some leaves made from lace. I added some feathers and buttons beads and some reclaimed wedding lace leaves and tatting that had been reclaimed from a mistake a friend was working on instead of getting trashed.
I added little buttons and running stitch "seams" to the patchwork print along with a fairy button.

The block is DARLING!!! I love the bouquet of flowers! The different textures of lace and organza and tulle all look magnificent together!
That tulle draping from the princes hat is pretty adorable!
That tatting looks like no mistake now!
I have GOT to learn how to do this kind of stuff!!!

Oh my goodness!!! It looks so fantastic!!! Thank you so much. I finished the dress for Rebekah. The dress is not quite what I had hoped but if I decide to stick with it then I will finish the last 4 blocks (almost done) and we can set a date when I come out there. I was actually thinking just now that next week would be good because it is Spring break. Maybe on Thursday? Let me know how that sounds and I will talk to Jon about it.
Hugs,
Wendy
