    Would love to know how you make them so I could make some for kids around here in Central FL.
    What you do is wonderful and so needed. Parents of sick childern are under so much stress and to see their precious child get the love and comfort from the doll must help them too.
    Hugs,

    Being a nurse myself, I can tell you that the holidays are lonely times for childern and adults that are in the hospital...Bless you for making their day a little brighter...I knew they appreciated it...bless you for your kindness.
    Merry Christmas.

    Carol,

    My dolls have always been free, and I have been helped to make 134 so far because of ladies across the USA. I would be happy to send you a doll kit for both boy and girl dolls, plus a fabric cut out for a girl doll, if you'd like. The cost is free. Please do know that this is my own design, and preserve my copyright.. The dresses (two per doll as she is topsy turvy, take 1 and a half yards each and it is a yard (slightly under) for the body. The girls are 24 inches high and the boys are 28 inches tall. For the boys I buy used like new 6 month size clothes (love overalls on them) and often find them on half price days at 2 local thrift shops. Sometimes I have to adjust the pants waistline. It would be after Christmas before I could put it together. I use 4 sectios of different colored ribbons together to tie around the waistline of each doll. (Snugly to give it shape.). The bodies are quite ugly before they get finished, but then because of the shape, they have fat widecheeks to kiss and put wide smiles on for the kids. If you wll PM me, I will need a mailing address. The doll insructions will have my phone number in the event you have questions. God bless and hope many dolls ate available to a VERY sick child because of you. Merry Christmas.

    Thanks to all of you that write to me. Like I've said before it encourages me to continue. I was a licensed vocational nurse for 27 years before retireing. i have 34% of my lungs because of smoking for 35 years, although I quit in 1990. I have emphysema, and use O2 at night and sometimes during the day. Sewing I can do and i am honored to be able to help this precious children. If you know of a child in need please let me know. I am the only one physically putting my dolls together to bring them to llife in my local area, so it takes a bit. The boy dolls are faster. Two children were laid to rest a few years ago with their dolls, so it tells me they were loved. Plese all of you that see the dolls, send good thoughts and love, plus prayers if you are a prayer for them. It is needed.

    I so agree with you Janice. It would be wonderful if these precious children saw more good things, and less sickness. Thanks for your reply.

    Oh my gosh, those are just too cute. I love the little boys, such handsome little guys.

    Thanks for showing us.

    The boys seem to really be a popular thing. I have to admit, I send these cute fellows a 'wink' myself, sometimes. Glad you liked the picture. Thanks a million for the reply.
