Tiny Holly Elf

Four inch Amelia Thimble is all ready to lend a (tiny) hand to help Santa.  She knows there are things that only she can do like arranging things in a little girl’s dollhouse so it is just perfect when she finds it on Christmas morning, climbing into a stocking and getting the little gifts to fit perfectly in the toe, and testing out a race car on it’s new track (she is very brave).  Her dream is to accompany Santa on Christmas Eve and maybe this year her dream will come true.

I’d Like You to Meet Talyssa

Introducing my first Kaye Wiggs doll, Talyssa.  Isn’t she just the sweetest little thing?

Talyssa is currently the largest doll that I am creating outfits for so while sewing for her may be easier, knitting for her takes a bit longer (but that’s okay).  On the other hand, because she is larger I will be able to use fabrics, ribbons, etc. that always got pushed to the back of the drawer because they were just too big in scale for smaller dolls.

I am looking forward to making many new things for Talyssa.  Her debut outfit is for the upcoming holiday season, of course.  It is called “Elves Needed”.  Don’t we all need lots of little elves to help us with holiday chores?  Talyssa is ready and willing to be a little elf for us and help in whatever way she can.  Here are some pictures of her modeling her new Christmas set.

Pukipuki is Here to Welcome the Holiday Season

Okay, I know it is early.  Halloween was three days ago…!  By the time Thanksgiving gets here, though, I think we will want to have some idea about what our doll displays will look like, no?  I must confess that I actually started making things for Christmas in July.  While I was enjoying the hot Florida sun I was knitting Santa hats and I am glad I did because time seems to be slipping away already.

So to welcome the season here is my Pukipuki Sugar.  She is wearing a winter white hand knit and daintily embroidered dress in a mohair/silk yarn.  On her head is a ruby red Santa hat with fuzzy trim.  If you listen closely you can hear the tinkling of the little bell which magically sticks to her hand (oops sorry, no magic here, there are magnets in Pukipuki’s hands).

Here is a closeup of the embroidery.  It is quite tiny.  Two different varieties of evergreen boughs and berries, and tiny embroidered bows encircle the waistline of this dress.
