Bev's Half Doll no.2

Bev also knitted this stunning dress.
Sylvia is dressed in a pattern from Karen Green
called Debra Out Strolling.

This stunning skirt is adapted from the pattern
by Karen Green.Instead of knitting the
V shaped top as per pattern,
I just added a knitted waist band,
which is shown in the video in the
tutorials page.
Bev used bead no. 651 and D.M.C. cotton 712
Contrasting bead no.7283.
This pattern uses 2 x hanks of main coloured beads
with 2 x balls of main colour cotton.
1 x hank of beads for contrasting bead.
Pattern by Karen Green called
Debra out Strolling.


Bev's Half Doll

Bev Barker of Launceston chose the elegant doll Dorothea,
dressing her in a pattern by
Beryl Minter called Bridget in Blue.


Bev chose bead no.587T for the main colour with 
Presencia cotton no.4059.
 Bead no.691 for the contrast teamed
 with D.M.C. cotton 818.
This pattern takes 2 hanks beads
 for the main colour
and 2 1/2 hanks beads for the contrast.
4 Balls of cotton(2 for each colour bead)
Pattern by Beryl Minter called Bridget in Blue.


Curious George

I made this sweet little monkey to go with a Curious George book that I brought for our
 Grand-daughter Juniper's first birthday.
The pattern is from Lisa Pay who gives out the free pattern as well as other cute animal patterns with instructional videos from her youtube channel
 "Pay it Forward".
He is made from felt,I filled him with rice instead of the plastic beans.
He was quite simple to make with the follow along instructional video,
even for a beginner.
