No Longer Waiting for a Make Over ~ Ready for an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gift

This is my little "Operation Christmas Child Mascot" who was waiting for a makeover.  I got her in a large lot of Beanie Babies I ordered on Ebay for my shoe box gifts.  She was brand new, but her hair stood on end and she looked chilly to me in her lightweight dress. So I made pony tails in her hair and then crocheted her a little short sleeve sweater with ribbon to match her hair bows.  She's waiting till November when I tuck her into a shoebox, but until then, she is going to be my best buddy when I work on my shoe boxes.  (You can see her before picture below in the picture from the Ebay listing).

Talk about a bad hair day...I'd hide behind the animals, too.

What a sweet collection of beanie babies. Love how you fixed her up. I miss doing the Shoeboxes. Maybe we will be able to do them again this year.
Oh, I love the little shawl
