Barbie and Her Big 'Ole Forehead

As you know, silhouettes are popping up everywhere lately.  I've seen art, pillows, cards and many other fabulous things adorned with silhouettes.  Because I needed to add a few things with sleeves to E's school wardrobe, I thought I'd do a t-shirt with a silhouette appliqued on.  Then I thought, how about a Barbie silhouette?  So, I searched for a Barbie silhouette and found this:

Isn't that cute and vintage looking?  I thought she was adorable so I bought a pink t-shirt and went to work.  I got it all finished.  Wanna see?

Ummmmm, does that look funny to anyone else?  It looks like Barbie ran into a door.  Look at that forehead!  My gracious!  She must've been so exausted from her busy day as a veterinarian, nurse and firefighter and moonlighting as an astronaut and dance teacher, that she simply fell over her own feet after changing into her ballgown for a fancy date with Ken, when she turned suddenly after painting on her three eyelashes and ran into the bathroom door.  Yep.  I'm pretty sure that's what happened.  Poor Barbie. 

Okay, so maybe what actually happened is that I forgot to cut out her bangs.  Oops!  Oh well.  Barbie is such a perfectionist.  I guess I don't really feel that bad about knocking her down a peg or two. 

By the way, I did not make E wear the Barbie with a big ole forehead shirt.  I made another one.  It's a few bucks wasted, but at least she won't look like a dork. 

Ah, that's better, right?



  1. I think it's cute! And who knew Barbie had a weird head? I love that she's not as perfect as we thought!

  2. I love that ol' ms barbie isn't perfect! Very cute idea!

  3. You are so funny- Barbie really bugs me sometimes- she deserves to get knocked down a peg or too!! Such a cute t-shirt, Tanya!

  4. HAHAHAHAHAHA! She did have a big old forehead in that first attempt. I love the idea and the second attempt VERY much, though.

    I love me some Barbie.
    I'm built just like her, you know...

  5. Much better! It looks adorable!! I've been trying to convince Michaela Byrd that she wants to have a Barbie party this year. ;) ;)

  6. So cute. Barbie can't have a big forehead with that those tiny feet!! You were a champ to make another shirt. I so wish I could sew like you!!
