Peaches and Cream Barbie

Today, I’m over at The Train to Crazy as part of the Handmade Costumes series.

Last year, I made the Gigglemobile for my son (and both my kids still love it, although it desperately needs some panel-beating!). This year, it’s time for a costume for my little girl, and what’s more girly than Barbie – more specifically:

Peaches and Cream Barbie!

Maybe I’ll just hide behind this stole.

And finally, later that day…
