A friend of mine blew-out her knee and had to get surgery on it. She is very into sports. The only doll I could find was a ballerina and I couldn’t leave her in her tutu………..
SO…….I took a ballerina Barbie, put her in some of Ken’s clothes, cut her waist length hair (my friend’s hair is short), cut her leg with a xacto blade and stitched up the cut with a needle and thread and made her a crutch out of a chopstick (from rb tee) and rubber for the armpit padding.
I am going to send it to her with one of my Goldfish Funeral cards. I’m going to write…Things could always be worse!

    So cute and humorous…I’m sure your friend will love and appreciate it. And I am sure it will lift her spirits. She is lucky to have such a caring, thoughtful, and talented friend.
    BTW, the photo is great! Love the perspective and shadowing.
