Millie, my Kaye Wiggs 11″ BJD, is here today to welcome the new week and say hello to you all. Millie is not minding the frosty weather we are currently “enjoying” in northern Illinois one bit; after all, she is dressed for it, and has a little buddy who was made for this weather.
Millie wears a dress made out of a teeny tiny snowman/Christmas tree print. This cotton print is from Japan. French cotton lace that looks like tiny snowflakes edges the hemline.
Millie’s cardigan sweater is knit with a beautiful pine green merino/silk lace yarn. Bright red holly and leaves are hand embroidered on the cardigan’s front panels. Bright red glass bead buttons add to the festive feel of this cardigan.
Millie’s cute hat is knit (in the round) with a heavier weight of the same type of green yarn. I added a wide border of “fur” trim in baby mohair/silk lace yarn. Just for fun, and because Millie’s personality called for it, her “fur” pom pom dangles from the top of her hat with a couple of bright red jingle bells completing this fun hat. Can you hear them jingling?
Little Frosty is needle felted with wool and hand made by me. He wears a tiny elf hat (knit in the round) that matches Millie’s. Another bright red jingle bell can be found on the top of his hat. His features are created with Delica and seed beads which have been carefully sewn on to give him the perfect look. A tiny yarn “scarf” is looped around his neck.
Millie’s other accessories include a red wool scarf with mohair fringe, bright red rayon tights, and a minty striped bracelet with a heart and bell dangle.
“Little Frosty” will be available tonight (November 13, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
I hope all of you have a great start to the week! Enjoy!
