Roxanne's new bikini
Hello all ! A couple of weeks ago I told you guys that I was knitting a bikini for my step-mom's mannequin "Roxanne". Well, I finally made the 3 hour trip and got it to her. Thought you guys might want to see.

Roxanne's bikini is hot!

Is there a "story" behind the mannequin?

lmao... my step mom BONNIE just loves to play with BARBIE Dolls that she had to get herself a life size one Now the wrap has a stroy behind it. It was made out of scraps from 3 baby blankets I did over the last 2 years. One of which is her grandson's.

You did an excellent job on the bikini and the little wrap skirt! It just cracks me up that your mother has a life-size Barbie!
