I'm not sure, but isn't that raggedy andy? Either way a dreadlocked chick would rock.

UPDATE ON THE DOLL:

a couple weeks after posting this last summer, i was contacted by a woman in the UK (i am in US) who titled her message with "Your Doll Looks Like Me!"...long story short, a friend of hers had been searching craftster, and stumbled on my doll, which apparently looks a lot like the woman (Ginger).

anywho, Ginger arranged to buy the doll, and I packed her up for her long trip across the pond. I asked Ginger to send me a pic of her WITH the doll, but she never did Sad

but somewhere, the doll is living a new life!!!

How cool is that?  Your doll had a real life person who looked like her! Wink

No matter, it is a wonderful art doll to have in one's collection!
