Winner Drawn is -CrochetKitten-

 

I recently rescued an unwanted Barbie. After I gave her a good bath and detangled her hair, I decided to make her an outfit and give her a good home.  The only thing wrong that I could find with the doll, is that her ring is missing. She really would love a new, loving home. :)

 

Her wonderful outfit is designed by Agnes Russell  and is called  "String Along with me" from Feb. 6, 1996, Crochet World.  Her top is attached in back with hook and loop tape; the skirt is attached by gathering the tie, and tying it in the back in a bow.

 

I will take names from the forum until 5 pm eastern standard time, on Feb. 6th, and I will randomly draw a winner later on that day. I will post who the winner is no later than Feb. 8th, as I would like the doll to get to its recipient in time for Valentine's Day, if possible.

 

 

Names in drawing:

1-Jessicali

2-CrochetKitten

3-mom4x

4-grannyannie

5-MamawNaNa

No need to enter me. :D  As I have a few myself waiting to be dressed.

 

I just wanted to tell you I love the outfit and you did a great job cleaning a detangling her hair.

 

As for the ring, you could glue a bead or sequit there. :D

TampaDoll-I just wanted to tell you I love the outfit and you did a great job cleaning a detangling her hair.

 

As for the ring, you could glue a bead or sequit there. :D

 

Thanks, Tampadoll.  That's a great idea with using a bead or sequin for a ring. 

 

 

 

Peggy85225- No need to enter me, just want to say how lovely she now looks she's going to make some little one very happy.

Thanks, Peggy.  She is a very pretty doll.  I love her long hair.

 

 

Thanks Terri/Ladysorce, Bailey4, Pineapplequeen, and Pineknott for the lovely comments.

It was lots of fun giving her a cleaning and fixing her up.  Dolls are always fun that way.

 

Anyway, I just drew number 2.  The lucky winner is CrochetKitten.
