A while back a Flickr and Blogging friend of mine Beth who has a lovely blog, 'By Hook By Hand' decided to do a doll swap - I had been admiring her crochet dolls very much and wondered if she would like a Hitty doll. I was delighted when she said she would like to do a swap.
Hitty '9' aka Hitty Serenata was finished and sent on her journey to a new home in the USA. I really enjoyed this project and had fun making up her wardrobe.
First up we have the poor girl bravely posing in her 'birthday suit'
She is wearing her red 'coral' necklace.
Next she gratefully puts on a pair of pantaloons.
Some dresses are made for her - to suit the different seasons.
A classic 'Rose dress' as she was 'born' at Rose Cottage and a pretty spring/summer dress
Something for the cold winter months...and of course a Christmas dress.
A patchwork quilt to keep her warm.
A shawl to ward of the chills.
Her trunk is packed...
She hops in...
Lies down and prepares for her long journey.
She has now arrived safely in her new home and I look forward to reading about her adventures.
