Here's Florabelle! Isn't she cute? She's another Bit of Whimsy pattern. She's a Christmas gift for my niece. She was so fun and easy! I added some extra touches to her also: the ribbon bow and collar, eyelashes, and a nose.

You may be wondering why she's holding a stuffed pickle. Well, it's a bit of a joke you see. When I asked my niece (she's 12) what her favorite things were so that I could make her something she'd like for Christmas, she said she liked monkeys and pickles. I told her I wasn't sending her pickles so she said, "How about a monkey with a pickle?". She's a bit of a smart aleck.--so here's her monkey with a pickle!
