While looking through things on the shelves in my studio who did I find in hiding?
Yes, Barbie and Ken…………They are at the sewing machine but they’re not helping me with my work.
I’m purging and listing on eBay and sending out sold eBay things.
They just sit there making eyes at each other.
I think they may need some new clothes….Barbie’s dress is just a gauge sample I knit on my knitting machine.
I knit Ken’s sweater by hand at least 45 years ago.
But the thing that worries me the most is red headed Barbie is hiding away somewhere with brunette Ken and GI Joe!
About 50 years ago I sewed Barbie clothes and sold them. I must have made at least 800 garments – mostly of my own designs.
I have NONE of them left as I gave the last ones away. I also gave my original Barbie to a little girl who didn’t have one.
20 or so years ago I did make some gorgeous Barbie clothes for my granddaughters dolls. Maybe they have some Barbie can borrow!
