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.
