All dolled up! One of Amanda's customers sports a Cabbage Patch hat. <br />
<br />
A fan of the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls has created a bizarre range of woollen wigs so that people can dress up as the iconic child's toy.<br />
<br />
The original dolls were created in 1978 and had fabric bodies, vinyl heads, and hair made from wool to look like a number of popular styles of the day.<br />
<br />
Although the toys are now made with cornsilk hair, an enthusiast has crocheted wigs to look like the traditional yarn ponytails, plaits, bunches, and ringlets.<br />
<br />
The accessories can be made in a variety of sizes to fit babies, children, and adults who wish to dress up like the popular dolls.<br />
<br />
Amanda Lillie, 32, had the idea for the wacky headwear when she stumbled upon a version online and wanted to make her own improved version.<br />
<br />
She unearthered her own doll collection and studied their hairstyles for inspiration before creating her own from acrylic wool.<br />
<br />
Amanda has now made a variety of different wigs in yellow, brown, black and red and each one takes around two hours to complete.<br />
<br />
They are sold on www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheLilliePad for prices between £13 and £26.
