Of Dolls and Princesses

So my little sister turned 6 earlier this month.  Her gift from me was a doll that looks like her and wears her favorite color - pink.  The week before her party I was telling my Mom about the doll and she asked if I could make K Rapunzel hair.  We sized a hat for her head and I took it home to use as a template for a winter hat that I then added long strands of yarn hair to, two strands at a time.  It was very time consuming, but my little sister loved the end result and it is a favorite for dress-up right now. Before the party was over she asked for it to be un-braided so that she could twirl around and have it fly around her.  It was cute.

I made the hair.  It took 4 skeins of yarn looped through a yellow winter hat that I also made.
Her first comment after I put it on.  "It's too heavy!"
She had fun decorating it with flowers like the girls in Tangled decorated Rapunzel's hair.

She had so much fun wearing it.
Such a pretty princess.
This is a doll I made to look like my sister.
I think she turned out pretty cute.
The headband is one my sister can also use in her hair.
And my sister has named her Kendra.
