    While passing on a box of craft supplies, I rediscovered an old pattern for clothespin dolls. Easy to imagine a little doll holding a tiny quilt square. Craft fair? Holiday project?

    Clothes Pin dolls are from another era. Children have no clue to the fun their g-parents and parnets had.
    Please post picture.

    I seen this tutorial a while back and just fell in love with it. I think my daughter would for sure play with these (maybe a summer project since her mother has not gotten around to making her any!) And the heads, if popped off would be MUCH easier to put back on than those stupid barbie heads with the little ball thing that gets popped back up in the head and you have to dig it out with tweezers. grrr. lol

    Anyways love these, http://goingsewcrazy.typepad.com/my_...-tutorial.html

    They are very cute. A whole table of them standing at a craft fair may be just to darling to pass up.

    Oh, I am seeing a group of those in a slumber party pose (but I'd need a doll with bendy legs)All wrapped up in a little quilt with a cup of hot chocolate in hand!
    Christmas presents!

    Or a little one fallen asleep in her quilt in front of the fireplace with a tiny stocking hanging from it.

    Oh wow, I love that! I think I have scraps from the quilt I made my BFF's granddaughter. Wouldn't she love a little blond doll under a matching quilt!!
