Sun Suit

I made a little sun suit for Betsy McCall.

But I think I like it better on this older doll.

I think she's sweet.

Even more vintage!

Doll clothes patterns are a habit of mine!

AHA! Mystery Solved!

This thrifted doll turns out to be
a babysitters club character named
Jessi.  She is in her original outfit, but
someone has chopped off her hair.
marked: c1993 SCHOLASTIC INC.

Please Indulge Me!

Very tired
and all ideas seemed like work,
so I took this photo and...

...made this poster.

Cut & Color - Digital Photo Alterations

This thrift store find has had her hair chopped and I don't know
who she is, but I find her charming.

Well. it's a First Try...

I thought, since the little nightgown didn't fit Betsy McCall,
I would run her up one of her own, using the vintage one for
inspiration.  Not quite as successful as I could have wished.

Look What I Got!

I went to the flea market to visit my friend.
I ended up buying this from her.

I thought it might fit Betsy McCall.

Doesn't she look sweet in it?
There's a lot of overlap in back.

So pigtail girl got to wear it.
  It comes down further on her shoulders than I would have
thought to be good, but I like it there

Sorry, Charlie!

It had been two months, but Charlie Brown was still hopeful.

Sometimes, he knew...

...valentine cards... get lost in the mail!

So, with the same spirit...

...that made him try to fly a kite...

...form a team...

...and play a season of baseball...

...or attempt to kick a football
held by Lucy Van Pelt...

...he checked the box and waited the mail carrier, faithfully.

Two whole months later, he finally lost faith,
gave up and crawled ....

... into the mailbox.  Poor Charlie!
