Reubenita the Fashionista--a Friday Finish



My name is Reubenita.  





This is my head shot.



I come from the Ric-Rac pattern, Reuben the Donkey, and Summer Song by Riley Blake.  



I have brown eyes, brown hair (which I like to style with pinking shears), embellished ears, and I love to watch Project Runway.



My favorite style is whimsical, and you will notice that I love flowers.



When I'm not hanging out in the buff..



I like to design and sew my own clothes.  My favorite dress is my Summer Song halter dress.



Nice to meet you.  Happy TGIFF to you. :) Oh, and Happy Donktober!



And now, I'm off to a party. ;)

*finish it up friday, manic monday @ sewhappygeektgiff @ better off thread,  can I get a whoop whoop, craftionary, crafty soiree, ladybird lane, project queen, do something crafty, strut your stuff, project inspire, sunday showcase, the dedicated house*

She's so pretty!! It may sound like a strange question but can Reubenita stand on all four legs? My SIL is looking for a donkey pattern to go with a nativity set (for the children to play with) and I thought Reueben(ita) may be the perfect pattern!
