Tree Ideas and Barbie's Dress
The other day I was posting that I would like to do a tree for Altrusa on my own but couldn't afford presents. Today the most bizarre idea came to me, make a Christmas tree decorated for Barbie and then I could make clothes and such as gifts! The costs would be low because I would be doing all the gifts myself and I could use odds and ends for clothes and jewelry that I already have. In fact I have several ideas for the clothes already. The tree itself could be decorated in pink with a garland of shoes! If I bought three or four Barbie's the tree could be a great gift for a family with little girls! I think that this would be a very popular tree at the auction. In any case I am still working on the under skirt for the 1885 Countryside Attire. The pattern is made for collectors and actually the clothing falls 2 inches below the dolls feet. So I am changing the pattern to fit the doll. I love to crochet so this project will be a great pleasure to make. The idea just needs to be thought through. Just need to ask Barbie!
