I have not fired adult styrofoam head, her job is secure.
I was over visiting The Wee House of Crochet complimenting on one of her toddler hats. She told me that she had just ordered baby and toddler mannequin heads for displaying hats and help with sizing her hats. This reminded me that I was going to get one of my childhood dolls out of my keepsake bin for just that purpose. I was sure that she had a head circumference of 14 inches which corresponds with newborn size in most crochet hat sizing charts.
I received this doll from a couple that had taken a shine to me. They were our neighbors when we lived in Glasgow, Montana in 1972. She was a second-hand doll but she still worked. When she was new she came with a phone that she “held” in her hand. You pushed a button on her hand that made her talk. She would say one of 11 different phrases as if she were talking to you over the phone. She was sold back in 1971 by the Mattel Toy Company as “Hi, Dottie”. I don’t think she had the phone, just the hand set when they gave her to me. I can’t remember if she had shoes at that time.
So Saturday afternoon I got her out of my keepsake bin. She needed a bit of cleaning, her hair need a wash and a comb. So without further ado, I would like you to meet Dottie my new model for baby hats.
Here are a few photos of her doing her modeling.
