A few friends on Facebook shared the Cabbage Patch Kid Crochet hat wig with me. I knew I would not be able to get away with NOT making one for my Pickle.
I didn't love the ponytail version because I could tell it was a crochet hat with added pigtails. I wanted it to look more authentic and also be a departure from Pickle's signature brunette bob.
I scoured ebay and etsy and the interwebs to find the perfect Cabbage Patch Kid. Once I found her, I started formulating how exactly I would turn my Pickle into a real life doll. I did a little vintage shopping on etsy and accessory shopping on Old Navy and then went to Michaels because I knew they would have the perfect yellow acrylic.
I NEVER thought I would buy a red heart super saver, but this is JUST the occasion!
Voila! Pickle turned Cabbage Patch Kid.
Can you spot the fake?
I wanted a sweet little song to go with the video, and I really wanted whistling in the song. Sweet Georgia Brown (by Take 6) became even MORE perfect when I realized that Cabbage Patch Kid General Hospital is located in Atlanta! Doesn't Georgia Brown SOUND like a CPK name? I had 2 or 3 myself but the only name I remember is Hyacinthia Hattie.
