Christmas ‘Carol’

Christmas ‘Carol’ with her large stocking of presents

 Another Christmas Polly, this time a customer order and named after the lady herself!  Christmas ‘ Carol’ ( as with all my Pollies)  is made from wire and papier -mache. She is dressed in a bright red hand knitted Tweed jumper with this seasons look of patches on the elbows. She has aubergine Tweed wool wrapped trousers and a bright purple Tweed wool wrapped under top. She has a hand knitted scarf with pom-poms and a robin hair clip. Her Christmas stocking is made from one of my favourite fabrics, from the very special ‘Tinsmiths’ of Ledbury’ http://shop.tinsmiths.co.uk/natural-fabric/folk-prints/cat_9.html

Well, Carol has already gone off to her new home, so I have my knitting needles at the ready and am currently dressing some smaller Christmas Pollies, these will be shorter than Carol (she is 35cm) and  with smaller heads, after that I shall start dressing’ Knotty Knitting Nora’ as suggested by Kate in the Mollie Makes ‘Christmas’ book competition.

Following this seasons look, Carol has patches on the elbows of her jumper !

A robin hair clip and a pom-pom scarf, a Christmas must!

A candy cane and shimmery parcel

Christmas ‘Carol’ looking quite serious , I think its the surprise of having a robin in her hair!
