Cardigan Sweater for Effner’s Little Darlings


I’ve just completed this sweet cardigan for the Little Darlings.  It is hand knit with super kid mohair/silk yarn and lavishly embroidered with bullion roses and rosebuds in little girl colors.  I made it longer than usual so it can be worn with skirts and slacks, as well as dresses.  This is a versatile sweater that will dress up many different pieces.  The cardigan closes with genuine freshwater pearls.  Nothing is too fine for these beautiful dolls.



The cardigan can also be worn buttoned up the back.

New Summertime Dolly Things

Just completed is a new dress for Amelia Thimble and a dress ensemble for the Little Darlings.  Amelia’s dress is hand knit and embroidered with strawberries and strawberry blossoms which are perfect for this time of year.  The strawberries are oyster stitches and the blossom centers are colonial knots, two new stitches that I learned from Mary Corbet’s Needle ‘n Thread.  Her stitch tutorials make it so easy to learn new stitches.  Thank you, Mary.

The Little Darlings dress ensemble is truly fit for a princess and is filled with sweet surprises and girly colors.

Both are available for sale on my website.
