Sapphire blue beaded Barbie crochet couture

saph-barbie1This one really turned out beautifully but took forever because of all the bead crochet in it.  I went with a strapless sweetheart neckline again because Barbie has the boobs for it. 🙂  The bodice is done in horizontal rows and the skirt in vertical rows finished off with a horizontal beaded border.  I did a beaded headband, a bracelet, and a necklace for it.  I finally got the shoes I ordered, so I can add shoes to the outfit as well.

saph-barbie2This one is done in cornflower blue Egyptian cotton #10 thread and is embellished with a sapphire blue mix of tiny glass beads.

I have sold 2 of these so far on Etsy now, although I probably make about 50 cents an hour for the time I put in on them!

      Thanks! I really love the color and I put more beads on this one than any so far. Took forever to finish it but it did turn out lovely. Wish I could charge by time and effort but I will feel lucky to get the $30 for it.
