I tried to crochet with fine silk thread. It was impossible. I moved up to silky tapestry thread and that was actually too thick. I had nothing in-between. Sigh.
So as I played with it and it was becoming a joke, I thought I would set it aside and give it a creative think. Rosebud has only one good leg (and a half leg). I thought maybe I could use the bulk of the crochet and some stiff lace and make a 1880’s style dress that could get her to stand!
This is a little antique lead dog I found in a bag of toys from a thrift shop. Only recently I discovered he had a slit in his mouth so he can hold a piece of paper.
Now I know how to work a dress for her. At 3 1/2 inches tall, she is a challenge for these big hands of mine. I also wish I could paint her eyes and lips, but her tiny features are out of my realm. It is a shame, as she has finely defined features.
