next on the runway we see.. oh wait, it's BARBIE!
Posted 12 February 2007 - 06:13 AM
I have now finished all these pieces. I had shown photos in the CAL but many of the items have had a few small additions since then. I hope to get some more things finished between now and Sunday, but I am not overly fussed. She is going to love these! All but the burgandy nightgown are my own design, and I haven't written notes, sorry! I got bored with having only the Barbie the streaked hair to photograph, so I opened the doll I got for her bday. Ummah! I will only have to open it that day right? saves me time fighting the packaging in front of an impatient child.. right?? (i am at my graphic limit, no smilies *sad face*)
This is a cardigan crocheted from Coats Milford 4ply cotton and a hook about 2.5mm (it's old school, says 12 but not sure if that is Brit or US). A belt designed so as little fingers can just loop a bead through and it's all "tied".
Mint nightie is a piece of fabric edged in crochet, the night cap an unlabelled cotton, maybe size 30. Both blankets are variegated baby yarns. The small square one is in anticipation of the Barbie nursery (with baby) I hope to buy. Burgandy nightgown was designed by Mary Jo (many thanks once again) and is worked in DMC Babylo size 10 and a 1.5mm hook. The slippers are crocheted too, the mask a fun extra. The cream on the burgandy nightie is the same cotton as on the mint one and the cap. The moon is also crocheted and then sewn on.

Barbie is ready for the beach! Her charming 2 piece swim suit crocheted in Aunt Lydia's size 10 cotton even contains built in underwear! Her floral lei is but 2 strands of embroidery floss crocheted as flower motifs and joined upon making each one. Her very stylish net bag is.. I don't remember! But I do remember the flower on it was made with a 0.6mm hook. Wow! Her very vibrant blue beach towel was cut from one of my face washers.
A snazzy and fun 2 piece pink skirt and top from Aunt Lydias size 10 cotton. Her very mini handbag being made from embroidery floss is super soft!
Another 2 piece set. White DMC Cebelia size 10, the teal DMC Babylo size to. Accented by a row of very cute opalescent shell shaped sequins and 4mm pearl beads. A bead in the centre of her top, and 3 on the side of her skirt to highlight that which acts as a button on her matching clutch purse! Her necklace was tatted, it too containin a pearl.
Assorted accessories to highlight every outfit! Starting in the top right is a skirt very much like that of the swimwear, only the skirt is longer and contains no built in undies. The 3 handbags as previously seen, a pair of actual Barbie shoes for size comparison, a floral lei as seen above, a knitted scarf (4ply Panda Regal cotton) and tucked in the middle there is a "hand towel" hehe An off cut of the face washer.. it just called my name, I swear it! So I edged it in crochet. Waste not want not!!

i'm also a single mom and I know how hard it is. Please believe me when I say that it's a much bigger deal to you than it is to her. By the time she's 10 she'll be lucky if she has vague memories of being 4. I guess that's why we take so many pictures lol.
I think any little girl would LOVE it! Are you going to wrap everything separetly so it looks like there's more? (single mama hint)
