I am still in my "doll period" but this time I want to talk about a project that does not involve crochet or knitting. Here's the story; on my previous forays for treasure at various thrift shops around town I couldn't help but notice the irresistable bunch dolls all piled up in bins. Such a sad but hopeful hodgepodge of dolls in various states of undress and "hairdo's". Usually I take 1 or 2 home with me with plans to "fix it up" and give it away to a child. Afterall, oftentimes these dolls are still in very good condition. It's usually the hair that's the problem...or lack thereof I should say. But then who hasn't cut their Barbie's hair? No matter how careful you were the sides would be uneven and you'd cut some more ending up with a shorn headed doll.
These dolls have bodies and faces VERY similar to the AG. And yes, I realize that they are merely a cheap imitations so please, if you are an AG fan I am NOT belittling AG products in any way. And I realize that AG dolls retain their value and etc. I'm simply talking about saving a doll from the landfill and re-making it for some child to have and play with.
The wig will be glued on using Aleenes glue as per a utube instructional video. Then she'll get some new, handsewn clothes and she'll be good to go.
