Pyjamas & Dressing Gown.

Nice warm pyjama's & gown complete the winter wardrobe for this little man! Made of flanelette in boyish colours..

A hunting we will go!

Here is the brown corduroy version with a hoody this time. So cute & with a matching brushed cotton long sleeved shirt underneath which peeks out from the jacket sleeves....

Little Boy Blue!~

This week I have been treating myself by making a winter wardrobe for some 11 inch boy "Babies".. these little men are overlooked most of the time & to be able to modify patterns to fit is a great feat! Isn't he adorable?
This one is made of blue corduroy & the little long sleeved shirt underneath is brushed cotton to keep him warm!.

Glorious Green

With the cooler months arriving fast in Oz it is time to start sewing for the little ones & here is a beautiful fine warm pinwale corduroy in a lime green with tiny white spots.. using machine embroidery for the Teddy bear with green colours to match the overalls. A white skivy & white frills around the bottom of the overalls completes the ensemble nicely.

Luscious Lavender!

I have always loved the colour lavender & this little set is so pretty & delicate. "Shyann" models the matching hat & onesie underneath the overalls perfectly. Each leg has a white spotted frill & the lilac Teddy embroidered onto the front of the overalls completes the ensemble.

Little Boy Blue

With Winter coming to Oz soon it is time to think about some warmer clothing for the babies. Here is a lovely little suit in pale blue viyella/brushed cotton. The ankles of the pants are smocked along with the wrists & Bishop neckline. Using Royal blue thread & attaching matching buttons it is a lovely little set.

........ and the back view............

Even the back is gorgeous!

Following on...........

Here is a full view of the previous gown set.......

Magnificent Gown & Bonnet

This all-white ensemble has turned out to be the most magnificent gown & bonnet set. Made of white fine cotton with pin tucks, insertion cotton lace & a large smocked panel in the front. The wrists, both back bodices & even the shoulders are smocked using this unusual pattern. The bonnet has a wide smocked section with lace. Any child will look wonderful on their Christening Day, Naming or Dedication Day. An heirloom for generations to come. It has ribbon ties at the back for the old traditional look. Several tucks are also applied to the skirt section which is quite long. Due to the beauty of this one I will post a couple more pictures showing the full length & trims..... it is available for sale to anyone interested...

Here is one of the cutest little sculpts - dark haired "Christina" & she is all dressed & ready for an outing...! I have added apricot buttons at the back & apricot ribbons to the bodice, sleeves & her hair. These are very desirable dolls for the serious collector - this one is 11-12 inches with bent legs.

Teddy Bear Quilt

I have a love for Teddy Bears so it was obvious that I would make a quilt featuring them. I have several patterns & hope to make many more but I thought this one was particularly nice with all the lilac, mauve & lavender shades of fabric. It has been hand quilted & backed with flanelette as our climate is warm enough without thick blankets. This one is cot size & ideal for a lap rug when it turns cool.

Miss Milly in the Mud!

Here is my little Chichuahua "Milly" after she discovered that mud was a great thing to play in... from white fur to dark brown mud!! A bath quickly ensued.

Off to France....

Here is a dainty little dress for a very special little girl who lives in France. Made for Helen & Nick's first new addition with love. Poly cotton gingham was chosen for easy laundering with frilled sleeves instead of lace. The tuck can be let down next year when she grows taller...

New Zealand Twins

Here are gowns for two adorable little 10 inch 'babies'. Made of fine batiste with narrow laces & matching pearls amongst the smocked Bishop necklines. These were a custom order for a delightful New Zealand lady & the teeny dainty booties were from Canada - aren't they sweet?

Smocking aside for a day or two & I took up the crochet hook again.. little mice like this one are very pretty & the model is the teeny Luca of 10 inches. Doesn't she look cute.... there is even a curly tail at the back.
