FO Friday : Chloe.

I have a lot to catch up on as far as all of my knitting! I'll start with one of my favorite Holiday projects.

Remember This?


Well it made A LOT of little characters for Evey's Christmas Playset! We had a barn, Spud, Chloe, a cow, a cat, a dog, a pig, a mother hen with four little chicks in eggshells, and three (not blind) mice! I still had some leftovers but was sort of unmotivated to keep making toys by that point, but more on that later...


My first project to tackle was Miss Chloe. She was going to set the tone for this entire undertaking. If she proved difficult, I knew the whole thing would be a giant headache. I was so pleasantly surprised!

Her head and torso were done in an hour and a half. Her little limbs flew off my needles. I was so pleased with the spead of all of it, I was beside myself.

After stitching all of her pieces together she looked like this. Evey found her in this state and declared her "Monkey!" and toted her all over the house. I was thrilled she liked her so early on! After retrieving Chloe and Evey went to bed I went back to work.

Next was the hair, her red hair. I didn't plan this, I didn't fall in love with Chloe because she is a fellow ginger (well maybe subconsciously I did), but I love that she is a spunky lil redhead! Her face had me so worried. I knew it could come out badly and make her look foolish but it worked out just right and I'm thrilled with the result!



All together and finished in two days. Evelyn loves her and calls her by name. She loves taking her little shoes off and attempting to put them back on. I love how Chloe turned out, and the rest of the farm, but you'll see those later :)
