Lord Ganesha/Fitting trial of cardigan(Updates)

I embroidered a ganesha for this vinayak chathurthi which took place last month end. To give a better look, i attached a felt material attached with the lining cloth. Hope this looks better now.

Then, i wanted to try the cap sleeve cardigan made by me. Wanted to try on a 3 yr old kid who is my neighbor’s daughter. Want to check whether it actually fits/too small/ large etc. To my surprise, it fitted the small girl perfect except that it was little small as expected. hope it would be perfect on 2yrs!! hope to try much more hereafter!! here is the pic
