Millie is a “Spring Princess”

Happy first day of spring (or fall, if you’re down under).  Hopefully the weather is cooperating for you.  The sun isn’t up here in northern Illinois yet, so it’s still a surprise at our house.

It’s Millie’s turn to show you something new!

Here’s what I made with my last color way of these sweet cotton rose print fabrics.  It is a very light pastel aqua or sky blue.

This delicately colored fabric definitely needed a light as a feather mohair sweater; nothing else came close to being as perfect for it.  Since this yarn doesn’t come in the perfect shade, I hand dyed a white mohair sweater to the lightest pink.  I love the finished result, do you?

Sweet Millie has a flower bouquet for you.  Will you accept it?

Every princess needs a crown of jewels, and Millie’s jewels are on her pearl headband.
