Amelia Thimble’s New Dresses from the Garden

Look what bloomed from my needles (both knitting and embroidery needles) recently.  I love making these hand knit and embroidered dresses for Amelia Thimble so much and my Amelia loves modeling them for you.

4 Amelia Dresses 169

These four dresses are quite a colorful bunch.  Each is hand knit with a different yarn.  From left to right:  kid mohair/silk (Aloft), bamboo thread (Aunt Lydia’s), hand dyed merino/silk (Gloss), and a tonal baby alpaca/silk (Shimmer).

This yarn produces very faint stripes in baby blue, lilac, and a blue in between the two.

I had tiny bits left from a previous knitting project of both of these hand dyed colors in my stash.  It was just enough to make this pink and blue set for Amelia.  The hat is knit with both colors also.  The photo doesn’t show it, but the top is knit in blue.  I added a very thin sparkly ecru ribbon embroidery thread for a bow.  It’s itty bitty, teeny tiny.
