“Sunshine Day” for the Little Darlings

Since sunshiny days are so difficult to find this spring, I made a new ensemble for the Little Darlings that is filled with the warmth of yellows and pinks.  It’s sure to brighten your day as it did mine while I was making this set.

The photo below highlights how delicate my mohair/silk lace sweaters are.  It is especially difficult to embroider on such an open knit as the embroidery threads easily show through to the front of the sweater.

(The lemon yellow/pink roses remind me of strawberry lemonade.)

I had the perfect colors of bicone crystals in my stash (thanks to my sister’s bead destashing last summer) to use for the bracelet; pastel blue, yellow, and pink match perfectly and add a bit of sparkle.  I also found a pastel yellow Swarovski crystal butterfly that matched the bicone crystals and used it for the end of the purse’s dangle.  Since there isn’t a heart on the bracelet I sewed a pink heart to the inside of the purse to show that this ensemble was made with love.
