    What did you do to make the clothes stiff?

    You made a darling quilt. It is very cute and I'm sure your grand daughter will love it. I remember playing with paper dolls - a long time ago!

    I had to laugh when I read this. DH and I had 3 boys. I always felt like the odd one in the family. Once I was in the shower and one of the boys (about 6 years old at the time) opened the shower curtain. Gave me the once over look. Closed the curtain and hollered out to his brother "I think I understand now!" I didn't even ask what they were talking about. DH had 7 generations of all boys in his family so we knew if we were ever going to have a girl in the family we would have to adopt. We did, and now we have 7 granddaughters and 3 grandsons. I guess the all boy gene has been broken. Lots of opportunities for dolls and pretty pink around here now. Ann in TN

    You did a great job!
    I have the fabric also. I don't have any girls around but I bought it just because I used to love to play with paper dolls when I was a kid.

    You are the best grandmothers, great ideas to put into something the girls can play with, and take with them. They will have great memories from the quilt, dolls, bags and books. How ingenious of you to put that all together. Great job ladies!!

    That material reminds me of younger days, when my sisters and I too enjoyed paperdolls.

    Thanks for sharing...

    I have to chuckle thinking about the marketing folks who thought up this one! From reading these posts...it isn't really meant to entertain young girls today - it was for us who played with Paper dolls! Although I am sure they want our children/GC to enjoy it too.

    Your quilt and bag and all was a stroke of genius!! I have a great granddaughter that is 5 years old. I now know what to do with that cute material I loved.

    Thanks for the pictures and ideas.

    Jennie Line - The quilt itself was part of a pattern from a magazine, I will try to dig out the magazine today and share that with you. I will post a picture of the quilt.
    The rest of the quilt I made up and would be glad to share.
    Let me find the magazine and you can let me know if you are interested in the details.
