|Betsy Ballerina Doll|
Betsy comes complete with a beaded tutu skirt, beaded bodice, beaded arm cuffs & a beaded tiara.
Her hair is in a classical bun.
Her tutu is of double thickness with a picot edging which enables the tutu skirt not to flop!
I have always said I would never knit anything to do with work, but after my ballet school's recent show I was inspired! So during my holiday in the Isle of Wight, with my family, Betsy was created.
Betsy is dancing the role of 'The Candyfloss Fairy' from the ballet - 'Candyland' - as invented by my children!
I have used Sirdar Snuggly Pearls DK & Hayfield Bonus DK.
