Pinkie Bobette

5 Feb 2012

 This weekend, when I should be out in the garden or sewing some new cushion covers or cleaning out the garage which is packed with hay for the (guinea) pigs and chooks,
 I am instead working on some little dolls.

When inspiration grabs you I guess you need to act. I am working on four little dolls, only 8" tall but with lots of personality.
 Bobbie and the Bobettes.
 This little one is Pinkie Bobette.

Katie is in a school production of Happy Days and has been away on a camp to get things rolling. 
There are Pinkettes in the play.
 You see how it works, Pinkettes become a pink haired doll with a bob and so Pinkie the Bobette demanded to be made.
 Her sisters Blanche and Sunny are in the works along with brother Bobbie.

  1. Love the pink hair on the bobettes!

    Is Katie playing Joanie? She has just the face for Joanie.

  2. No Rose, she doesn't have a speaking part, she is doing lots of dancing though and partners Ralph Malph in the dance contest

  3. A production of Happy Days sounds brilliant. I imagine it would be so much fun and those skirts....I always wanted to wear skirts like that when I used to watch Happy Days, sadly I was never confident enough to go so against 'fashion'. I loved the dancing, twirling skirts, bobby socks and gentlemanly behaviour from the boys. Oh now I'm off on daydream alley....
    cheers Kate

  4. Just wrote a comment but it's off somewhere else....anyway just wanted to say a Happy Days production sounds great, lots of fun.

    cheers Kate
