    Hi Jean Marie, Thanks that was really hard to do as Barbie is slippery and I didn't really do a good job on it. I wanted to make a bathrobe for my little one and I tried to do one but she is kind of small and I have bulky yarn so the stitches I wanted to use didn't work out. Remember all those blankets I made? Well she loves blankets and she says those are hers so I decided to make her a blanket that really is just hers. I also have been asked by her parents to make clothes for Ken. That is another hard thing to do as he is bigger than Barbie and most of my effort looks girly. I saw on the Internet a picture of a jacket and pants (no pattern) but I thought I might try and see if I can do it. I made a pair of white shorts for Barbie to go under her Pinafore so her little fanny is covered up.
    Are you doing a lot of crochet on your vacation? Post what you finish so we can enjoy and not have to do the work (ha)
    Stay safe,

    Hi Spoula,
    I thought you did a good job. Did you crochet around the doll? Maybe you can find a pattern that you can crochet for the ken doll where you won't have to hold the doll while crocheting. I don't know why you think I'm on vacation.

    Hi Jean Marie, No, I did not crochet around the doll because the back is opened and it was just straight across just like the one I made for my little granddaughter. I just start a chain or a ring and try that around the waist of Barbie and go from there. I have Ken's measurements but I don't have the doll it would be easier to make his clothes. I only want to make a jacket, sweater and a pair of pants then I want to retire from Barbie clothes if my little one will let me.

    About your vacation?
    I read one of your post and it said something about Holland and I thought you were on vacation there. I wrote to you and asked you if you went to the same place as the last time you were on vacation and you wrote back yes the same place. I must have something all mixed up sorry about that. I need to read more carefully. Ha, It could have been an old post.
