10 – 12 large silver jingle bells (local fabric store)
white long sleeve shirt (on hand)
red stockings or leggings (on hand)
black belt buckle (local fabric store)
1. To make each plait I have used 2 bunches of white yearn and 1 red one. I have tied the plait with red ribbon, sewed jingle bell onto the ribbon securing the whole thing from falling apart. Then I have sewn both of the plaits to the inside of the hat.
2. I have made the belt from red yearn with half trebles, using crochet hook, but almost any stitch, even knitting instead of crochet would be good. I have surrounded the red belt with black yarn using single crochet stitch. As a final step I have attached end of the belt to the buckle.
3. To finish off I have used the rest of the ribbon and jingle bells to decorate the dress.
