Here is a special little project that I just worked on over this weekend! I made a sweet little dress for my tiny Betsy McCall doll from a Wren Feathers pattern. I thought it would be fun to try.
As you can see, I call it Lacy Valentine! I used red wool felt for the handsewn dress, and added lace and rick rack to the bottom. I made the flower and leaves from ribbon, added a picot-edge ribbon sash, and added a little hip decor with another ribbon flower. The straps are ribbon and her head band is wool felt.
I enjoy sewing by hand, and love to make dolls, clothes, and cute little things like bunnies and hearts!

So, here she is, my Lacy Valentine!!! BTW, she is an 8" doll.
Until the next project ...
