“Little Frosty”

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.

New Year, New Pattern, New Ensemble!

By now it is 2017 everywhere in the world, so a Happy New Year to all!

My husband and I went for a brisk walk in one of the nearby forest preserves today.  The paths were a little treacherous in places, but we were careful and the sun felt so nice.  It was the perfect way to start 2017!

My Little Darling, Lucy, is also here with her bright, smiling face (and her itty bitty snow baby) to wish you all the happiest start to 2017!  Before most of our snow melted last week Lucy and I made this tiny snow baby. She is still trying to decide if this snow baby is a boy or girl, so she can give it an appropriate name.

While outside she told me that her new sweater coat, hat, and scarf kept her toasty warm.

Lucy is wearing a dress made out of my most favorite snowman print.  I LOVE this print!  It’s colorful and a little bit primitive looking.  There are “zillions” of snowmen lined up on this fabric; all looking equally cute, don’t you think?  Snowman lovers will find this print adorable.

I previously used this fabric in 2014 (“Snowman Luv”) to make an ensemble for Gina.  I decided to make it less Christmasy this time, so it could be worn more as a winter ensemble.

Isn’t this the cutest fabric!  I think they are the happiest little snowmen!

Lucy’s ensemble will be available Monday, January 2, 2017 at 7:00 pm CST on my website.

“My Little Snow Baby” is a one-of-a-kind ensemble, but if you’d like to knit your own sweater coat, the pattern will also be available on my website (January 2).  The instructions include a step-by-step guide to add your own patch pockets.  Once you see how easy they are to make, you’ll be putting patch pockets on everything! (lol)

Thank you for visiting with me as we start this new year together.  Bye for now!
