Dress Sets From My Tinies Closet

A giant hello to you all from my tiniest girls, Amelia Thimble and Izzy.

They have some news for you today.  Amelia and Izzy will be offering their new dress sets up for sale tonight.  They’ve had fun modeling them for you, and now would like to share them with their tiny friends.

We’ve been busy little bees working on these for quite a while now.  It’s been almost a year since I’ve made these tiny dresses, and I must say I enjoyed working on them once again.  Below are some in progress photos.

“Do You Want to Color?”

Hello to you all!  Now that it is mid September all school children should be back in the classroom.  I know a lot has changed since I’ve been in grade school, but children still spend time coloring, right?  They must, if a box of crayons being on the school supply list is any indication.  By the way, I think that new box of crayons is the most exciting school supply!

I have quite a few memories of coloring in school, especially in first grade.  Coloring is actually one of my only memories of first grade.  My teacher would line up piles of mimeographed (remember those?) coloring pages on top of the heater.  We were to start by coloring a page from the first pile, turn that in when finished, and then go on to the second pile, etc.  I’m sure we actually learned something in first grade, hope so anyway.  Since I LOVED to color when I was young, that is probably why I remember coloring and not the math or science lessons.

My Little Darling, Lucy, has a new coloring book and crayons, and a brand new fall outfit to show you.  I showed you a peek at this ensemble last time.  In case you didn’t see that post, you can go back and read it here.

Lucy’s coloring book contains pictures of things from her backyard.  Those butterflies, snails, bumblebees, birds, feathers, and flowers are also pictured on her blouse.  Her “beeswax” crayons coordinate with her ensemble and have their own crayon box.  (The coloring book and box of crayons are hand made by me.)

Lucy’s pinafore jumper is hand knit and made to look like a vintage jumper (probably) from the 1970s.  You can see that one here on my Pinterest board.  Lucy’s is made with a slightly muted sky blue (wool, nylon, Donegal) tweed yarn.  Two bullion stitched and beaded butterflies flutter on the skirt.

Her blouse bodice is lined with hand stitching; the sleeve seam allowances have been double turned and hand hemmed to produce an inside garment completely free of raw or serged edges.

Lucy also has a pretty blue rayon ribbon for her hair, cozy tan/white striped cotton tights, and a butterfly charm bracelet.

“Do You Want to Color?” will be available tonight (September 11, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

Here’s a question to ponder, what was your favorite school supply?

Wishing you all, my friends, a peaceful and beautiful day.
