Well, I've had this idea for a long time, and I finally did it! I made what I feel is a true Canadian Barbie. The official one made by Mattel many years ago was of a doll with a similar face to this one, but they dressed her in an RCMP uniform. Okay, that's like dressing a doll in a New York State Trooper uniform and calling her New York Barbie.
I had to bring out a few stereotypes though......the tuque, the Lumberjack Jacket,
I made her Mukluks out of sheepskin, but authentic ones are usually made from sealskin. Sealskin is quite hard to get and VERY expensive....so I went with what I had on hand.
Her mittens are sheepskin also. Her tuque and scarf are handmade by me out of alpaca wool. Alpaca wool is becoming very popular here where I live. It's softer than sheep's wool and every bit as warm. If I had lots of money, I'd move away from the city and raise alpacas for their wool.
I'm sure that's something Canadian Barbie would do too!
