My little Amelia Thimble has been very, very busy lately. I have a handful of tiny “Christmasy” dresses made and she has had to model all of them. I must say that she did a very good job, looking as cute modeling the last dress as she did modeling the first. After Amelia’s job was done I told her that it would be a good idea to lie down and take a nap. She is such a little thing after all. However, my dear tiny Amelia wanted to chat with the new girl, who isn’t much bigger than she is. More on the new girl later…
Here is my first set of dresses. They are all knit out of super kid mohair/silk lace weight yarn. This yarn is so soft and fuzzy. I love it, but the fuzziness of it requires some patience when embroidering on it. I found myself always pulling those long mohair strands out of my embroidery. Grrr! Well worth the bit of aggravation though, don’t you think?
This trio of super kid mohair/silk dresses all have holiday themed embroidery. The pink dress is embroidered with a large red poinsettia at the waistline, mint green evergreen boughs, and clear seed beads. The lilac dress is embroidered with smaller poinsettias in pink and red. I added clear seed beads to this dress also. I think they give an icy effect to the embroidery.
I love this shade of blue. I know blue isn’t typically a Christmas color, but it seemed to work as a holiday dress when embroidered with holly. I just had to add some pink roses too.
I hope you enjoyed this tiny taste of the upcoming holiday season. For more information, please check my website.
