Vintage Thingies Thursday -- Polly Pal
Today's Vintage Thingie is my Polly Pal doll. I was 8-9 in this photo. I loved this doll. I can't remember if Mom made her or if she had her made...regardless, she was one of my favorites. As was Ballerina Barbie who is in my other hand!I have searched and searched and my parents have searched and searched for Polly Pal, but alas, she has gone the way of most of my childhood toys and simply disappeared.
After I began my adventures in sewing I decided to see if I could find a pattern for Polly Pal. I scored this one on ebay!
Decided to try and make her. I've not made it very far. I changed her face a bit 'cause none would ever replace my own Polly. The body wasn't so hard. The clothes and the hair are a much more daunting task. Perhaps I will finish her someday. In the meantime, if y'all come across MY sweet Polly Pal w/her red hair and polka dot dress, send her home, please.
