And, We Have a Winner of the Doll Clothes!

Before I announce the giveaway winner, let me show you what I added--a sweatband I made for the Cabbage Patch.
Sweatband for Cabbage Patch
(I made this)
And, the winner is Janie Junebug.

pink shorts and top
(also made this)

(for children 8 and over)  
retainer modeled by Cabbage Patch Kid
(doll and army outfit not part of prizes)
one-piece socks and shoes

I just wish I could give these to all the little girls out there. The clothes fit the larger Cabbage Patch, but they will also fit the next size down.
Merry Christmas.


  1. Congratulations to Janie. I am sure she will be thrilled.

  2. Oh! That short set is sweet! You did a fantastic job on them, Linda. Congratulations, Janie!

  3. Was it the Cabbage Dolls that people used to "adopt" and hire sitters for? I went to their "adoption agency" once and was amazed at how straight-faced they all were. I think it was in Georgia.

    1. Snowbrush,
      You went to Babyland General in Cleveland, Georgia where Cabbage Patch Babies are born:

      I took my girls there with their CP. I would have been very upset it the people there had not been straight-faced. Everyone who worked there and all us visitors took it seriously. Along the front porch the length of the building were rockers. I figured those were for the less devoted so they would not spoil the atmosphere or want to leave.

      The cabbages were swelling in the cabbage patch with the cabbages swelling in different stages of pushing up through the "soil." A great to-do was made of each birth.

      Doctors were summoned often; nurses bustled about. It was just wonderful.

  4. Thank you! I have little girls (sisters) in my life who will appreciate this.


    1. Janie,
      I am glad they will get the clothing.

  5. That's cute! I have an elderly friend who has a collection of cabbage patch dolls and last year I made flannel diapers for some of her babies.
    BTW, that's a headgear, not a retainer. Used to move the teeth with braces. A retainer holds them in place after the braces are off.

    1. Patti,
      That is what it was called in the catalog. I know Thanks.

  6. Well, I had braces for half my childhood and a degree in dental hygiene. Looks like headgear to me 😃


Okay, hoping the annoyances have gone away.
