Thread: Barbara Eden of the T.V. show I Dream Of Jennie

  1. #1

    Barbara Eden of the T.V. show I Dream Of Jennie

    This was one of my all time favorite T.V. shows. So I decided I would give it a shot at carving a doll of Barbara Eden....I'll let you decide whether or not it looks like her.....It took me about two months to carve it and make her outfit....I want to give credit to my lovely wife for giving me very good instructions on how to make the clothes....It's around 28 or 29 inches tall, jointed at the ankles, knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, and neck, and made entirely of hardwood maple.....Just to let you know.....I won't feel bad if someone wants to point out something they feel I could have done different or better....I like friendly constructive criticism involving both positive and negative comments in-order to improve any future outcomes.....So here it is: Click image for larger version.

    You are one talented dude, dude! And kudos to your wife for the help with the outfit.

    Beautiful work! You should send a link to this thread to the Barbara Eden Fan Club. Who know, she might even see it and contact you?

    That really is nicely done, you are quite skilled. You realize that admitting we've seen that show kind of gives away our age?

    That is really remarkable. I only watched that show because she was in it. I remember looking at a picture of her in TV Guide, and wondering how one single person could look that good all by herself.

    I am also a Barbara Eden - I dream of Jennie fan. I loved that show and even still watch it on youtube sometimes.

    You did her beautifully - that is just soooo awesome.
