In my quest for color to brighten yet ANOTHER gray, rainy Northwest day, I found these doll photos that I don't think I've shared with you. I bought her at the Seattle Art Museum's gift shop awhile ago because I just couldn't resist the cheerful quirkiness of the two-faced design. I think it's supposed to be an elephant in the second photo.
Then the salesclerk pointed out that under her dress, the body had a zipper that opened to reveal its own carrying bag. As you pull out the bag, the doll disappears inside.
She said little girls use these to carry around their dolls in their own purse, with room for any extra doll supplies or other goodies. I don't have a little girl to give mine to, but I love having it perched in my sewing room. And I can really appreciate the sewing details that went into it.
Have a colorful day!
