More Braided Trim- and Something For Dolly

Above: Some braid made of wide ribbon, with pastel pony beads braided in. This trim is the handle of a purse...
...that is made of bright butterfly fabric that has some sparkle to it. It is a nice little bag to store some necessities for dolly, such as a bottle or change of clothes. 
Above is a bit of "home made" trim on dolly's new dress. 

Here are some dolly accessories (clockwise from hat): crocheted beret, muff, and booties. 

The muff and booties were easy to make. They were just quick single-crocheted rectangles slip-stitched together at one side to make a tube (for the muff) or at the side and bottom (to make the booties). Ribbon bows make them charming. 



(Above: the underside of the dolly beret) The hat is a scaled-down version of a beret found years ago in a Leisure Arts publication. If you know how to crochet in the round, this is very easy. For the top of the beret, you simply alternate rows of crochet and increases, keeping your work flat. When your top is deemed big enough, start decreasing for the underside of the beret. Decrease until  you reach the head size you are trying to fit.
