When I found Penny at a doll show years ago, she was a real mess. She had no clothing, she was dirty, and her hair was all short and frazzled. I don't know why I bought her. Maybe it was her brown eyes. Or maybe I saw some kind of potential in her. Whatever it was, I don't know. I just knew I had to have her.
So I brought Penny home and cleaned her up. This meant cleaning between her fingers, toes, behind her ears, her eyes, and every other small spot with a q-tip.
When she was clean, she was still naked, so I found a doll clothes pattern I liked and some fabric, then made her a cute little dress and panties. She's showing you them in the second picture.
I bought Penny's shoes and stockings from a doll catalog, and I also bought Penny a wig. Yes, Penny's hair is a wig! But doesn't she look great?! She looks like a brand new doll, but she's not. I've had her for almost 25 years and who knows how long she was around before that?
Anyway, Baby Cat and I are now enjoying Penny and sharing her with you. It just goes to show what you can do with a little love, cleaning solution, some fabric, and a wig!
