Altered Barbie Adventures

I am working on a swap for an altered Barbie.  I found this really cool tutorial: eyelashes for Barbie
I took black embroidery floss and a needle to thread the "lashes" thru the back of her head to the top of her eyes.  It was kind of tricky and my fingers are sore (need to find a thimble!!) but it was a totally cool process.  Here is a picture of her before I stiffen and trim the thread to make them look more like fancy eyelashes.  So cool, right???

  1. Wow, that is some serious dedication. I'd never really thought about Barbie altering before, but suddenly it seems like a whole endless stream of artistic possibilities. Uh oh... you're giving me ideas! :)

    By the way, have you seen this crazy Barbie jewelry? http://www.margauxlange.com/
