It’s Starting to Feel a Bit Like Halloween

I’ve been pulling out my orange fabrics and embroidery threads, mixing up different shades of orange dye for my wool, and buying tiny pumpkins and candy corn for photo shoots.  So here in my studio it is “starting to feel a bit like Halloween” even though it is still over a month away.

I made three teeny tiny dresses for Amelia Thimble.  I custom mixed and hand dyed all the oranges for these dresses.  The embroidery took some thought.  It was a challenge figuring out how to embroider pumpkins and candy corn.  The first dress coordinates with an outfit I made for Wilde Imagination’s new Patience doll.  See pics below Amelia.

Here is Patience in her new outfit.  I absolutely love this new doll.  I wish there was more time in the day.  There are so many things I would like to make for her.

And, there is Amelia being a bit of a rascal again.  Patience is appropriately named and puts up with all of Amelia’s shenanigans.

Amelia is a helpful rascal.  Here she is showing off Patience’s sweater.
