The Adventures of Penny Brite

7 May

PB boxWhen my oldest daughter was little I made a carry-box for her Penny Brite doll, using one of my dad’s cigar boxes. I found the box, and the doll, in the attic about a year ago, and decided to refurbish the box and make some new clothes for the doll.

I’ve had a ball! I bought scrapbooking paper at A. C. Moore to line the box, made drawers and inserted a clothes rod. I even hung a mirror!  I downloaded some patterns from the internet, and set to work making the doll a wardrobe.  I bought Barbie® hangers and snipped off the arms so they would fit both the clothing and the box.

Recently, I found a huge book with photos of America’s National Parks, and Penny has gone on a tour.  We’ll keep you posted on her travels.

    How wonderful! That is a great idea.

    Hi! It’s Tam from Planet of the Dolls. I thought I’d check in on Penny and see how things were going. Do you have Penny’s original red and white dress? I have about a million spares somewhere if you need one.
