Our school is having a silent auction fundraiser tomorrow night. I made this knitting Barbie, I can't wait to see how much $$$ it brings. I love that on "teacher contributions" they put the value as "priceless" :) I also made a "Vintage Bubble Bag" from "Purseanalities" but forgot to take a picture.

The hats and flower were a baby shower gift .... baby, big sister and mommy

She sold for $85.00 YEA! She was purchased by one of my Kids Knit parents.

The Bubble Bag sold for $65.00 I am so pleased.

Thank you so much everyone! The knitting needles are toothpicks ... one of those knitting always on my mind grocery store moments. They are Diamond brand and called elegance toothpicks. They come in a clear plastic "jar". One end is pointed and the other is "carved" ... perfect knitting needles ... cut off to the right length and re - pointed using a nail file :)

Barbie is "Ballerina Barbie" and she is completely jointed ... making her very easy to dress and pose. Now, I want one for me ....

I used Nikki Epstein's Barbie knitting books sometimes following the pattern, sometimes not. Barbie is very easy to knit for because she doesn't care if you have to bend her arm all the way to her back to get a sweater sleeve on. She is so cooperative!

Thanks again for the complements!
