I finished Violet's velvet romper/jumpsuit. They're lined and everything. The above hat was made by my friend Jenny. That's the cutest little hat--hand felted! (Say, "Oooooooh".)
I made a matching rosette headband, but she likes to change headgear every hour or so.
I think this was made in the 1950s to cover up pin curls. Kind of like a swimming cap covered with bright pink petals.
I love seeing this little face pop up while I'm doing daily things. Don't get me wrong...she can throw an impressive tantrum. In fact, she's been pretty whiney today. Most of the time, though, she's a little ray of sunshine. And I'm very, very grateful for that.
These photos are fab. You have captured her spirit, her delightfullness, a bit of her life at Chez Armadillo. On top of everything else this child has going for her; is it just me, or does she look like a fashion model in miniature?

I need a Violet fix...soon! She's also required to wear the hat.
