    you younger ladies 60 pluse might remeber a doll you made out of disc's and set on your bed. She had a big full skirt and came in a few different colors' try in vain I can't find her or anyone who knows anything about her. and Thought may some one on this board could help . She used to come in a kit. can't find those either. someone said I could buy coffee filter disc's and dye them . sounds like a lot of messey work to do it that way. I had a picture of mine on my bed untill my GD saw it and said OH grandma could you make me one. Well now im on a mision. She took picture and lost it. Please any help would be great. Thanks Ronda

    Mine was made from filters for straining raw milk, I think. The "milk pads" were white and the yarn was purple. I thought she was beautiful!

    My mom had one that my grandmother made of milk strainer pads. We had a dairy when I was little. Mom still has the doll but the dress is long gone.

    Oh my goodness i forgot all about those. I was a farmer's daughter and remember sneaking to the barn and "stealing" the milk filters. I can't remember how the dolls even looked, but remember trying to make them. Hope you kind them and can post a pic.

    I didn't go in and look at the things that are linked too, but seems this might be them.
