Rebecca's meet accessories, except the brooch, aren't anything special. I was really disappointed in the shawl. I do like it's tasty-looking mustard color, but like others, I was disappointed that it is only printed on one side. I have Josefina's heirloom shawl and was really expecting Rebecca's to be of the same quality.
I really like her little brooch. It features the hare from "Clever Karina," a story that Rebecca acts out with her Uncle Max. I like that it's not a pin, but it falls off so easily. I lost it twice while getting Rebecca dress and felt like an idiot scouring the floor for it. I'm not going to let her wear this if I take her anywhere; I wouldn't want it to get lost.
Oh dear, Rebecca's hat. I think the ribbon is really pretty, but I can't stand the hat. I'm nervous about keeping her curls looking nice, so I was afraid to really mash the hat down on her head. As a result, Rebecca looks rather foolish. I was happy to discover that a friend is interested in the hat, so I can let it go without feeling guilty. Hurrah!
The accessories would have been more complete with a coin. After all, the whole first story is about Rebecca earning coins with her crochet work.
