Iron Craft #14: Blue Skies

This week's challenge:

"We haven’t had a color challenge in awhile, so let’s celebrate those lovely summer blue skies. For this challenge we want you to make something where the prominent color is blue. It can be anything from the palest blue grey to a bright cyan to the darkest midnight blue." (courtesy of Just Craft Enough)

I have been working on a ton of birthday presents and custom orders from friends lately, so thankfully one of those involved some blue! :D

Lucy! From Peanuts.

(Actually... the pattern I had for Lucy called for a red dress... but I've never seen Lucy wear a red dress....?)

 I sewed several expressions on Lucy's face and finally ended up with this one. Not exactly happy about it, but it captures her well enough. I had tried closed mouth, open mouth (like when she's yelling BLOCKHEAD at the top of her lungs). I tried slit eyes and bead eyes. I tried eyebrows and no eyebrows. Nothing made me happy. Everyone else I've shown her to seems to think that she's great though. So I stopped worrying about it.

She was the last in a series of Peanuts characters that I made for a friend to give for a birthday present to a boy who has recently discovered the Peanuts through a school animation project. Cool!

I made Charlie Brown first, then Woodstock and Snoopy and finally Lucy. :D

My Lucy project is on Ravelry here.

What a great set. Woodstock is my favorite.
