My Dear Jane Journal

I have moved all the posts for my "Dear Jane" quilt to a separate Blog.

Knit doll dress

Barbie dress #1
I knit this with baby yarn. It was a test knit of the top half of dress. I then went back and crochet the bottom of dress. And since the baby yarn made it bell like, I added a tulle underskirt.

Barbie dress #2
I used a finger weight wool, purchased at the thrift store.
I mostly followed the pattern for this one.

And Acorns
Each Acorn top was about 1 1/4 inches.
The leaves are paint stamped on felt.
Each Acorn body has three sections, using scraps of fabric from my Dear Jane quilt project.
I was thinking mini pincushion, but think it would make nice ornament as well.

So cool! Seeing those Barbies brings back some memories. My aunt used to sew clothes for my dolls. They were so awesome!

Cute acorns! I can definitely envision these made up as little wrist pincushions.
