I've been meaning to share this with you for a couple of weeks! I recently participated in the Fairy Tale Mini Swap and this is what I made for my partner. She wrote on her swap survey that her favourite Fairy Tale is "Snow White and Rose Red". I had never heard of this fairy tale so I googled it and read it and now I love it too!

|I used raw edge applique to attach the girls and animals to a batik forest background. I bought the batik while on vacation in Jasper National Park. The forest animals are from "Forest Friends" line by Ingrid Snyder for Moda.|
|I wrote the girl's names with thread using my sewing machine as well as a quote from the story (upper right of photo). The girls are from a pattern kit by Carrie Payne of Believe Magic. You can buy them in her Etsy Shop - Believe Magic.|
|Here you can see the quote from the story in the upper right: "What one has she must share with the other."|
|Here is a closer look at some of the forest animals.|
