I thought and thought about how to do the face. I finally settled on a needlepoint approach with two skin tones, pink for the lips, and brown for the other features. I worked it with only one strand of floss. I think it came out very well! The texture is different than the arms and legs but it still works together.
Almost done now! All that’s left is a few details on the crown, the pink flower in her hair, and some grass to stand on.
