Would you put your baby in a Cabbage Patch Kids wig?

Cute or crazy - you decide!

Cabbage Patch Kids fan Amanda Lillie, 32, has crocheted a range of BABY wigs in homage to the dolls' distinctive hairdos.

Amanda was inspired after finding wigs similar to the Cabbage Patch dolls' styles online, and decided to start making her own for babies and adults to wear.

She spends around two hours making each acrylic hair-piece at her home in Georgia, and can adapt them to any shape or size.

"I had many dolls growing up, and I purchased my last doll when I was 16 years old," she told the Daily Mail.

"I began crocheting several years ago, and in August last year I saw a photo online where someone created a version of the crochet Cabbage Patch wig for a toddler. The hat did not look like a Cabbage Patch Kid at all, it had stringy bangs and the pigtail were entirely too short, I knew I could create a much more authentic looking wig."

Inspired, Amanda got her old dolls out of the cupboard and made a pattern based on their hair-pieces.

"I was successful on my first attempt and with Halloween soon approaching I put it up for sale on my Etsy shop," she said. "I was surprised to find that there was a tremendous amount of interest in my hats. Since then I have sold dozens of custom made hats for newborns all the way through adults."

Amanda's hats have proved so popular on her online store that she offered her pattern up for sale too, with some crafters now making the fun wigs as gifts for cancer-stricken children in hospital.
