A “Bitsy Pumpkin Patch”

I know that I’ve been talking Christmas, Christmas, Christmas all week.  Let’s get back to reality for a bit…

Here’s the first of my teeny tiny dress/hat sets.  This one is made just for Wilde Imagination’s Amelia Thimble and Izzy dolls.

Oh, I did get some sewing done yesterday.  I now have my first Christmas dress made along with the sweater and hat.  Now, for the fun and creative part–adding the finishing touches and making everything “just so”.

Bye for now!  Thanks for reading.

Hope you had a great day!
