Cinderella

This Cinderella Topsy-turvy doll was knitted for Bethan for Christmas 2011. She looks a little saggy now but when she was first made her face and body were plumper. It was surprisingly easy to make, it was simple knitting and purling.  It did take a very long time to finish though, especially with all the making up at the end. The pattern for this doll came from Jean Greenhowe’s Christmas Special.

Meringue skirt

Although this is not the first skirt I’ve ever made, it is the first one that I’ve made without help. Paul bought me the Colette Sewing Handbook so I had to make  something from it! It was my first go at darts, zips and a curved hem, but I’m rather pleased at the final result. When I’ve lost a little more weight I’ll make the Pastille dress from the same book.
