I had to use this “super cute” print again for one of my last 2015 Christmas dresses and Gina begged me to make it for her. Who can say no to Gina? Certainly not me!
Last year I used this print for Talyssa. You can see that ensemble here.
Gina’s sweater is knit with tan mohair/silk lace yarn. Embroidered all the way around the neckline are berries and leaves. I’ve also embroidered a few hearts because there are hearts on the dress.
I wanted to make Talyssa a Rudolph toy last year, but didn’t, so this year I was determined to give it a go. It’s a fair amount of work to draw the pattern pieces, dye the felt, and put it all together. The little faces, or expressions, are the most important part on these little toys, I feel. They have to be “super cute” and make you say “awww”. I hope I was successful…
This little guy is a two dimensional toy and stuffed with plastic bean bag pellets to give him some weight. I think Gina likes her little Rudolph.
