I found this doll in a thrift store. I didn’t recognize this doll, even though I was drawn in by her very cute face. The markings on her back only said "©2006 Zizzle". After doing some searches on Google, I figured out what this doll is. She is a Super Cycling Sarah Doll and she can still be found in certain places like the Amazon Marketplace. This doll originally came with a bicycle and a dog but she was devoid of both by the time I rescued her from the thrift store. The doll wears a pair of tennis shoes that came glued to the doll’s foot so I couldn’t remove it. (It ended up matching the outline of the heart on her chest.) I replaced her original jeans with an outfit that I made from the shredded jeans shorts that I painted white. I constructed the outfit using instructions from Tina Casey’s book Fabulous Fashion Doll Clothing You Can Make. I attached a bling glittering heart sticker to the chest area to represent love. I made the symbols on the doll’s skirt from Shrinky Dinks then glued it on her outfit. Each symbol represented a different religion or ethical system or belief system and I included a question mark to denote any religion/ethics/belifes I may have inadvertantly skipped. I made angel wings using glitter paper that was glued on bristol board. I used a black ink pen to draw the feather details on the wings.
After I finished with rehabilitating this doll, I used her in a diorama that was based on the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
