“Teddy ‘n Me and the Apple Tree”

Hello everyone!  Oh my, I’ve been absent for a while, haven’t I?  Sorry I haven’t been around to chat with you all.  My excuse is that I got on a Craftsy kick again.  I purchased a few knitting related classes, so I’ve been preoccupied with learning some new skills and practicing them.  If I could only do one craft I think it’d be knitting.  I could give up sewing, embroidering, crocheting, but not knitting.

After my Little Darling, Gina, saw Lucy and Alice dressed up in their apple themed ensembles she got really sad until I made her one too.  I cannot stand these tiny beauties sad!  Good things come to those who wait though; the teddy bear was an afterthought, but made Gina extra happy!  Doesn’t his golden color work perfectly with this set?

I customized Gina’s teddy bear with a little bow, a crocheted scarf, and an apple button.  While we’re on the subject of accessories, Gina’s red delicious apple is kept safe in her crocheted apple cozy.

Gina’s light as a feather knit cardi is made with baby alpaca/silk lace weight yarn in a beautiful golden yellow.  Little red bullion stitched embroidered apples decorate the front and wooden beads are used for buttons.

Gina’s beret is knit with a slightly heavier red wool.  It is knit in the round without seams.  The golden yellow rayon ribbon and English cotton Cluny lace were hand dyed to match this set.

Do you recognize this fabric?  It is the same print (by Elea Lutz) I used for ” ‘Tis Apple Picking Season”, but in the white colorway.  When they’re this cute who can buy just one!

    I can see that Gina is happy indeed. The apple theme for the girls has been so enjoyable to view. Just adorable. That little red beret is the perfect topper.

      Hi Joy. The apple ensembles were indeed fun to create, and now it’s time for more fall-ish things. It is still hot and muggy here, but probably not for long– fall is on the way. Hope you have a nice Californian day.

      Thank you, Wanda. I think if I knit a sweater for a person, even a little person, it would probably take me the entire year! (lol) For me, doll knitting is the only way to go. I also noticed that the tinier the yarn and needles are, the less my hands get stressed. Who knew! Hope you have a great day!
