Lisa of Glitter in My Coffee, sewed the cutest Gabriella Fae for her daughter. Best of all if snowed before her photo shoot so the pictures are especially festive and magical. You won’t want to miss this tour! There’s also a pattern giveaway at the end so make sure to stop on over and leave a comment.
