Nora Corbett Alphabet Fairy C
Stitched on 32 count Oceanic Fantasia by Crafty Kitten
Using the Crescent Colours recommended
I made one or two minor changes.
I used DMC 356 to backstitch the skin (it's my preferred colour for the job).
I used DMC 208 for the swirls on the thing in her hand and stitched it over 1 using the chart CC.
I used DMC 500 for all the other backstitch just because it looked better than brown.
And of course, one major change! I didn't stitch the square border or the filled in background. None of the other fairies have a square border and by using a beautiful hand-dyed fabric like this you don't need to stitch the background either. I extended the waves on the right and the top so they are more curved. On the original they were cut flat by the border.
