♥ ALL DOLLED UP! ♥ The patterns in the "All Dolled Up!" line from Little House are cross stitch charts adorned with "pretties". We have used Mill Hill beads and a few buttons from Just Another Button Co. to dress up the cross stitch designs. We have also added a cube finish for Chocolate Box which is new for us! The use of "pretties" are optional but they sure "doll up" the finish!
