(Newser) – It’s not quite the Barbie treatment, but a die-hard fan of YouTube phenom Susan Boyle is selling handmade dolls of her favorite crooner online, the Telegraph reports. Each $22 doll, measuring 4 inches tall, is crafted from household materials and painted by hand. “When I first saw Susan on television I just fell in love with her and when I heard her voice I had stars in my eyes,” explains Illinois dollmaker Debbie Ritter.
