“Sunshine & Posies” for Patience

Patience is all about summer sunshine and flowers, flowers everywhere.  Doesn’t she look all bright and happy and ready to make you smile?

I love Patience in hats.  This one is crocheted with three strands of cotton in two different weights of thread.  The brim can be turned up, down, or a bit of both.  The band matches the dress.  I “free hand” crocheted (no pattern) the flower to coordinate with the shapes on the dress.  It is a cup shape and filled with yellow beads for the stamens and has a curly apple green stem.

    This beautiful little ensemble is perfect for patience. The colors suit her well. The hand beaded tuck on the hemline really does bring out the yellow in her dress and her hat is so cute.
