Specially made for Dianna Effner’s 13″ Little Darling dolls
6-piece Ensemble includes:
Sweater Dress – hand knit
Sweater dress is hand knit by me in warm pale blue merino/silk blend yarn. The fur-like edging is knit with mohair/silk yarn. Gina’s dress is a graceful a-line style with a working pocket. Hand embroidered holly and ivy botanical motifs, snowflakes, and iridescent crystal Delica beads are randomly stitched towards the bottom of the dress. The dress closes all the way to the hemline with crystal look glass beads and buttonholes.
Headband Ear warmer- hand knit
The headband ear warmer is made with the same yarn used for the dress edging. Holly and ivy embroidery adorns each side of the headband. The two ties are of different lengths so that when tied in an off center bow the ends are the same length.
Tights – handmade with cotton knit
Red/white striped tights are the perfect touch for this ensemble! The tights have an elasticized waist and all edges are treated with Fray Check.
Scarf – hand knit
This extra long scarf is made with deep red merino/silk blend yarn. It can be worn looped or casually thrown across a shoulder. Bright green fringe adds that festive touch.
Snowman – handmade needle felted
This tiny snowman is needle felted by me out of merino fiber. He is tall and skinny and fits into the dress’s pocket. This snowman wears the tiniest hand knit hat in deep red merino/silk yarn with a bright green pom pom at the top. His scarf matches Gina’s scarf’s fringe. The snowman’s face and buttons are beads which are securely sewn on by hand. His arms are crochet thread which are securely attached. He is a miniature work of art in and of itself.
To show that this ensemble was made with love I’ve made a bracelet with red and white seed beads and a red heart. All beads are strung on stretchy jewelry cord to slip easily over Gina’s hand.
