Flutter, flutter little bat, how I wonder where you're at....

"Bat Girl"

This dazzling handmade Bat Girl has just fluttered into my Shop. Act fast as I have a feeling she won't be lurking for long.

I shall be a rather sad to say goodbye to my little friend. Having spent many hours creating this eye-catching little character I felt in a constant bubble of 1920s costume parties. She has the look of a dazzling flapper about her in her black lace and sparkling sequins. I've not used a machine at all, preferring more and more these days to work free hand. I enjoy the slow, calming sense that hand stitching gives me. If you witness every tiny stitch in a piece, you get much more of a thrill at the end.
