    I always need wide ribbon for decorating the skirts when it is available. It takes 4 yards of narrow ribbon (1 yd minimum of each of 4 colors for waist line ties, so that is 8 yards per doll. I try to make them as pretty or the kids as I possibly can

    Thanks so much for all those precious replies. They are all appreciated. For those who might not know, these dolls are mainly for kids 2 to 8 who suffer from devestating medical conditions. Both doll and mailing are free. If the doll goes to either Del Norte county or Humboldt county in California, and meant for a child with cancer, the ACS will mail it for me.

    Thanks 98% or thereabouts of the dolls end up with a child with cancer.

    I will tell you that this doll would make an 81 year old woman very happy, too. Did anyone of us not smile when we saw her? What a beauty!

    Thanks for the addy, WordPainter. I will see what lace and ribbon I have that might be of
    help for you. I used to own a fabric store and I may have some left overs you could use.

    Both are beautiful dolls. You are such a wonderful person to give to the sick children. She will love it and it will bring a smile to for precious little face. I will keep Kinsley and her family in my prayers. I really like the fabric on the first one.

    Vickey, the girl doll is beautiful and I know it will make the little girl happy. The boy doll you made my brother's great grandson that you made for him has brought him many smiles. He is really enjoying it. You are doing a great ministry for sick and hurting children. God bless you for your caring and sharing your dolls. It is good to see you and the sweet doll. Thanks again for all that you do.

    thanks to all of you who have taken time to reply to me, and those others who are able to help. I always am glad to hear that the child that gets the doll loves it. That is all i can ask for. Hugs go all.

    I sure will pray for her. My grandson had that type of cancer when he was 18 months old along with testicular cancer. He is now 12 years old and very active and cancer free. It is a scary thing.
