Raincoats All Round

Stuart Profile SmallDolly may have solved the boredom crisis but the change in the weather has brought a new set of problems. While it is unpleasant, most of us are well equipped to deal with it. Well. all except one. Dolly. And sitting out on the handlebars means she too needs protection.

So our latest job has been making Hannah’s dolly a raincoat. We’ve had to improvise a little so should you find yourself in the same predicament, here’s a quick run-down on how to make one for your dolly.

First, take a plastic bag. Then, make a hole for the head. After that, make two holes for the arms and tie it all on tightly. Your dolly will now stay dry all day. Apart perhaps from her head.

So, next find a nice shop that sells yogurt. Buy your favourite flavour and eat it. Lick the inside as clean as you can. Tape the empty yogurt carton to Dolly’s head.  That should do the job. Not the most flattering look but functional. Don’t you think?
