Crafty like a fox

When I was a little girl my FAVORITE movie was The Frog Prince starring Aileen Quinn (Little Orphan Annie). My sister's child loves the film with a similar fervor. I always liked Princess Zora's blanket, and decided to make one for my niece for Christmas.

Fur helped me with the pinning and sewing of more than forty yards of red satin ribbon. We made the blanket slightly more fabulous than Zora's, with wider, shinier ribbon and bigger bows:

Don King does not appear overly impressed with her blanket in this picture, but Brigid says she loves it.
