Daddy's Little Girl
There is a special bond between Father and Daughter. For Father's Day I wanted a piece that would re-create that special relationship. Daddy is the strength and infallibility she comes to count on and she will never be more of a "Daddy's Little Girl" then right now.
Dad stands on his own at about 5.5 inches high holding his precious daughter high in the air helping her to "reach for the stars".
A classic gesture of love and encouragement.
I like the longer bodies, arms and legs of the "Thread Ted" and the cheeks of the "KnotHead" and the belly of BittyBears... so I kind of mashed those 3 patterns together to create the Dad.. adding a few rows here and there so everything was balanced.
The daughter, pfft.. (as in real life) proved to be more difficult... the only stuffed portions of her is the head and the body to achieve her small size. The arms which are only 6 sc around are not stuffed, nor are her cute little feet and legs.
It also helps that I used baby yarn (3ply) and a size 6 hook..
The sun has not fully rose yet.. it is very overcast right now - which I am hoping will blow over..
but then I will take some better photographs of the pair and place them on my Flickr & Ravelry sites.
I've not decided what I am going to do with the pair as of yet. My original intention was to place on eBay for sale.
