mini: wooden clogs

From 1989 - 1994 I worked at Mattel, designing Barbie Dolls. As part of the team to bring CAD into Mattel's design process, I went to Michigan with Anita + Lynn to train on U4ia software (now owned by Lectra and renamed) at CDI in Grand Rapids.

We did NOT spend all of our time in training! Holland was one of our stops and I collected a bunch of Barbie sized Dutch items.

A plain pair of wooden clogs purchased then were used on the prototype for Dolls of the World Dutch Barbie and they were sent over to China to copy for the production moulds.
The hat was also copied from a Holland-bought sample.

These sketched here I found in the same box with the mini Hormel can.
