From Doodle to Embroidery
The coloring of the little girl was done with colored pencils, an idea I borrowed from Shelly at Gingermelon dolls. Shelly has used this technique to lovely effect on some of her sweet embroideries. It is a great idea if you don't want to fill the open space with embroidery stitches :-)
Here is a collage with some closeups of the embroidery. Nothing but stem stitches, lazy daisies, and French knots.
Knit pullover sweater
The sweater is knit from DK weight yarn (I used Berrocco Comfort DK) and size 1 single point knitting needles. Her blue jeans are just the panties pattern, lengthened to pants length.
Enjoy the day, and enjoy the crochet :-)
