Good morning! Are you smiling this morning? If not, Lucy can help you with that!
My happy Little Darling is here to model her new ensemble… and she’s got a little bag of cookies for you. And I promise these are calorie free. 🙂
Lucy’s dress is made with a simple cut out cookie print. Hearts and stars are printed on a linen-like printed textured cotton. I wanted to add some color and sparkle to this dress, so I outlined with embroidery random heart cookies in one of two shades of red, and gave the center of some star cookies a decoration of a golden iridescent seed bead (sewn on). Delicate scalloped English cotton Cluny lace peeks out from the hemline.
Lucy’s deep red cardigan sweater is hand knit with lace weight merino/wool yarn. Embroidered around the neckline is a one-color decorative leaf/vine/berry design. Mixed amongst the embroidery are the same beads (sewn on) as used on the dress. The sweater can be left open or buttoned with coordinating glass pearl beads.
A small knit lace motif has been added at the shoulders and the back of the sweater.
Every helper elf needs a Santa, stocking, or elf cap. Lucy’s Santa hat is hand knit in the round with wide stripes in both bright and deep red, a coordinating taupe-ish heather, and natural colored Peruvian Highland wool. A multi-yarn pompom and gingerbread cookie button decorate the tip of this Santa hat.
Lucy carries a bag filled with coordinating cookie shapes. It is tied off with cotton thread. Underneath it all is a pair of deep red rayon tights, and on her wrist is a bracelet with a heart dangle.
